Show Of The Week

May 25, 2016


I’m really excited for Friday.  Not only will Boyfrndz be releasing Impulse, an album full of Mars Volta-esque gems that I’ve had on repeat over the last couple of weeks, but they’ll be celebrating its arrival with a big show at Sidewinder.  With them will be Hikes, Tia Carrera, Transit Method and Caddywhompus.  It’s going to be rad.  Don’t miss it.

Boyfrndz – 11-12am
Hikes – 10-10:30pm
Tia Carrera – 9-9:30pm

Caddywhompus – 12-1am
Transit Method – 10:30-11pm

$8 adv/$10 dos

By the way, I suppose I should point out that the Boyfrndz album release gig is presented by 101X Homegrown Live, which is a program associated with a radio show I host every Sunday at 9pm.

Speaking of radio-related things, on Friday there’s also an early show I booked that I’m pumped about.  It’s with 93.7 KLBJ out at the Overlook at the Oasis.  It’s free and features Eric Tessmer, Residual Kid and Ben Ballinger.  If you’d like to spend your whole Friday with me, then come to that as well!

Eric Tessmer – 8:30-9:15pm
Residual Kid – 7:30-8:05pm
Ben Ballinger – 6:30-7:05pm
