Giveaway: Trail of Dead at The Loft

26 Oct

Austin’s … And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead built their popularity as much on their reputation for wild performances–which often included destroying all of their musical equipment on stage–as on their noisy, art-rock sound. They would often destroy the PAs as well, thus owing clubs money at the end of the night rather than turning a profit. And while their sound has gone through several changes over the years, and they destroy less equipment these days, their live shows are still full of raw energy.

If you’d like to see for yourself, try your luck at snagging a free pair of tickets to their show at The Loft this Thursday, October 28, with openers Ringo Deathstarr and Bad Design. Email us at giveaways@daybowbow.net by 11:59 on Wednesday to enter. We’ll pick a winner at random.

If you end up a loser, don’t fret. You can pick up tickets for $15 in advance or $17 on the day of the show.

Rundown: 9/29 to 10/4

28 Sep

This Trees thing annoys me. Really I hate the way it’s being heralded as the savior of Deep Ellum, despite the fact that the bar is catering to the Firewater set by bringing in bands who are sans radio play, and were popular for like a second in about 1998 (Looking directly at you Powerman 5000, and really who would have thought a Ozzfest band would take their name from a Kinks album.). Seriously, there were 4 news stations there covering it’s opening, Vanilla Ice sold out the place, and various media outlets are have continually gone ape shit with coverage of the places exploits.

The fact of the matter is what John Is does with Parade of Flesh is a thousand times more influential to the “scene” down there then anything Trees has done so far. Seriously, the man tirelessly books a wide variety of quality acts in various clubs in the area, and doesn’t get a quarter of the press that shitty bar gets, and that’s a tragedy.

I’m taking this space to thank John for the hard work, Parade of Flesh continues to book some of the top shows in the area, and it’s much appreciated.

Big week around these parts folks, take a look at the shows, and start making plans to go out.
