Show Of The Week

August 16, 2017


There’s a great one presented by my radio show, 101X Homegrown, that’s happening this Saturday at BarracudaQuiet Company will be celebrating the release of their new EP, Your Husband, The Ghost, and Darkbird will have a new 7″ on hand.  When it comes to the former, I think it may be the best thing they’ve ever put out, and in regards to the latter, that two-song effort has just further made them big favorites of mine.  Don’t miss this show!

Tix are $12.  MCG, Buttercup and Criminal Birds are set to open.

PS – I’ve got another entry into the 93.7 KLBJ’s Sunset Series happening this Sunday out at Ernie’s On The Lake.  Come see Jackie Venson, Girling and Hunter Sharpe!  It’s FREE!  Music starts at 5pm.

Darkbird (Video Premiere)

June 30, 2016


For the last couple of months I’ve been steadily playing Darkbird’s latest single, All There Is, on both of my local radio shows (see the sidebar for more info on those), so it’s a rather nice treat to be asked to premiere the video for it.  John Valley (Sweet Spirit, A Giant Dog) directed it, and I think it’s a good fit for the song, which is about “giving up on life.”  Enjoy.

The I Remember Feeling My Fingers Slip EP is currently available via Bandcamp.

By the way, if you dig the song and/or the video, then you should attend Darkbird’s release party this Saturday at Cheer Up Charlie’s.  There’s a great lineup and a rad poster!
