My good buddy Nathan (from Austin Town Hall) and me via my radio show, 101X Homegrown, have a rad gig happening this Saturday at Barracuda. It’s a total Back To School Bash with a loaded bill that features Shivery Shakes, Basketball Shorts (creators of one of my fav albums this year – Hot And Ready), Summer Salt, Young Girls, Mean Jolene, Rose Selavy and Plantation Band. What a lineup! And the best part is that it’ll only cost you $5. That’s right, for $5 you’ll get to see seven of my favorite bands out of Austin (and Houston). You’d be super silly to miss it.
By the way, if $5 is just way too pricey for you, then shoot me a note HERE with the subject TUITION IS EXPENSIVE AND I’M BROKE. On the day of the show I’ll randomly draw someone for a pair of guest list spots.
Check it out on Facebook HERE.
PS – If you’re inclined to see me twice this week, I’ll be at the Oasis on Friday for a show I booked for 93.7 KLBJ. It’s FREE and you’ll get to see A. Sinclair, Nic Armstrong And The Thieves and PT Banks.
