We’re hitting the road this week to Austin TX. It’s been awhile since were last a part of South by Southwest, and we’re happy to be taking the sojourn that so many other bands have and are making. It’s always been a good time before, and this time has the promise of being even better.
First, on Thursday afternoon, we’re playing for Rachael Ray at her Feedback party at the Greenhouse. It’s an RSVP-only event, so if you are in or around Austin that day, drop us an email and we’ll put your name on the list. No bottle service, but that’s pretty VIP, right?
Next, on Saturday afternoon, we’re playing as part of the Red Gorilla Music Festival that runs concurrent with SxSW. We’ve played the Blind Pig in Kalamazoo but haven’t graced the stage at Austin’s version of the venue. We’re pretty excited about it. This one is free to the public, so drop by and check us—and the other great bands—out.
Other than that, we plan on hitting some food carts, this BBQ joint that boasts one of the few true open-pits, and maybe even see the resident bats exit their bridge-home one evening if they cooperate. Joe D is in talks with Fender about doing some sort of Ambassadorship/gear-test clinic, so look for news on that. Who knows, maybe this means he’ll get a brand new Jimmy Vaughan Stratocaster reissue! But seriously, he deserves his own signature Jazzmaster, don’t you think? We’ll call it the Joezzmaster… or the Dashmaster!
Alright, enough tomfoolery. We’re just excited to be making the trip, that’s all. If you’re in Austin, hit us up.
