Oh boy! We’re heading out into the north Texas countryside for the Octo-Bear 2021 fest. Friday-Saturday. Oct. 29-30. Two days. Two stages. 30 bands. And Halloween. Food concessions, bar, and possums provided. We play on Saturday at 8:45 PM. Special set planned. Check the FB event or message us for the address. https://www.facebook.com/events/414850177028291
Next Saturday, Oct. 23, we return to Austin’s Kick Butt Coffee for another appearance at Satellite Fest. Show kicks off at 6:00; our set is at 8:00 (but we’ll be taking the stage a bit earlier to back 100% National Treasure Jean Caffeine on a couple of songs, so get there early!). Thanks to the fine folks at Satellite Communication for having us back for this year’s event. https://www.facebook.com/events/1079737382560729
This months goodies are a dumpster dive into some material that no one else is going to get to listen to until alien archaeologists decrypt my hard drive and blast this shit out loud to their unsuspecting planet.
Friday night we play our first ever show at Killers Tacos in Denton (with Vanastro, Lunar Reverb, Stace Spation, and Sadbreed), and we couldn’t be any more excited to eat tacos, make loud noises, and make new friends. On Saturday night we return to our home-away-from-home, GROWL Records in Arlington (with Nooner Pine, The Sewing Jar, and The Go-Go Rillas!). Mask up! Rock out!
It’s been a little while since we did a livestream, and while we’ve enjoyed being back onstage in front of in-person audiences, we know it’s still a shitshow out there for some of you (and us too). Also, we miss seeing our out-of-town friends in the comments! So we’re gonna hop back on FB tomorrow night at 8:00 PM Central for a little livestream session. We’ll be playing some of the new songs slated for our next album (which we’ll be recording Labor Day weekend down in Bryan TX!) and some old favorites. Hell, we’ll even take requests from the comments section, if you’ve got something you really want to hear. Tune in to our FB page. Tell your friends. Stay safe! Stay well!
Next up is our debut at Dr. Jeckyll’s Beer Lab in lovely Pantego TX (google map it!). It’s a cool little beer bar in a shopping center next to a snow cone place and a short walk from a really great Mexican diner. So come out early, grab some tacos and a snow cone, and wash it down with some beer, then rock out with PF63, Double Bear, and Spencer Wharton and the Static Creatures. Oh, and the show is free. Starts at 8:00.
Note: tThis will be our last show for about a month (we’ll be working on a new album in early September)., but we’ll be back again in late September in Arlington and Denton for a pair of shows with some friends from Beaumont, some apes, and some other assorted oddballs… Mask up! Rock out!
We’ve got a busy weekend coming up. Friday, August 6, we head West (of Dallas) to play at Main at South Side in Fort Worth with Crooked Bones and Cool Jacket. Saturday night we head West-er (or further West) to play a Covert Concerts event in Mineral Wells. It’s gonna be hot, literally, so mask up, stay hydrated, and rock out!
At long last, we return to our home base, GROWL Records/Division Brewing in Arlington!
Join us on Friday July 23 with the punked-up roots rock of The Koffyns, and the noise stylings of the enigmatic Most Efficient Women. We’ll try to end the night on a weird note, or maybe just offer some critical feedback… Music starts at 9:00 PM.
Thanks to Tulips FW and The Go-Go Rillas for a fantastic first night back!
We had a blast making noise with the the great apes in the lovely space in Fort Worth. Thanks to everyone who came out. We’ll be back onstage later this month at GROWL in Arlington (7/23) and Kick Butt Coffee in Austin (7/31). Stay fuzzy.
We’ll be taking the virtual stage again from our north Dallas garage for ANOTHER LIVESTREAM on FB. Joined by our friends Big Heaven (this week’s Fort Worth Weekly cover model!) and Robot Ex-Optimists (LOUD!FESTing-in-Place 2021).
Show starts at 8:00 Central, with sets streaming from each band’s FB page and shared to the event page:
The Sleepy Redhead broke out the sewing machine this morning and stitched one of our new panda patches onto one of my shirts. Feeling pretty corporate right now. Swing by our bandcamp store and grab a patch or two for yourself.
Join us and friends The Very Very Boom (from Beaumont TX) and The Jet Noise (from North Richland Hills TX) for an evening of livestream music on FB. Show starts at 8:30 PM Central. Sets stream from the individual band pages and will be shared on the event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/483985099452465
On Saturday March 20, we’ll be kicking off SXSatellite 2021 with a livestream set from our north Dallas garage at 5:00 PM Central. We’ll be followed by our friends Charm Bomb, The Swift Drag, March & Beauty, Le Gargoyle, Jay Satellite, Yaupon, and Robot Ex-Optimists.
Squier Duo Sonic. Tuned to Open D. “Heavy” (but not really heavy enough) Fender Triangle pick. Vintage Vibe P90 pickup. This guitar is all over the new songs we’re working on for our next album. Mask up and get your vaccine as soon as you can. We’re itching to play live and get back into the studio. Stay well!
