Announcing SXSt. Patrick’s Day

8 Mar

Daybowbow and No Words are proud to present SXSaintPatrick’s Day, featuring underground superstars Vivian Girls. This unofficial SXSW day party will begin at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 17 at The Ghost Room (304 W 4th St.) and will cost $5, which includes unlimited beer.

Beloved by critics and music fans alike, Brooklyn’s Vivian Girls are one of the hottest groups in the indie music scene. They’re known for their lush harmonies, tight instrumentals and punk-meets-girl-group sound. The Girls are currently touring to promote their second release, Everything Goes Wrong, which has garnered rave reviews from the Los Angeles Times, Uncut, Paste and Pitchfork Media, among many others.

Vivian Girls began playing together in March 2007 and became an overnight sensation. Within a few months they had a dedicated local following and were opening for bands like Sonic Youth, Jay Reatard and The King Khan & BBQ Show. In 2008 they released their debut self-titled album which sold out within 10 days and was showered with praise by critics—Pitchfork rated it 8.5 out of 10 and gave it the hard-to-attain honor of “Best New Music”.

The talent-packed bill also includes fellow Brooklynites Bear in Heaven and Air Waves, Detroit’s Awesome Color, Austin’s Ola Podrida and Denton bands Matthew and the Arrogant Sea (on tour with Midlake) and Sleep Whale.

Andrew Tinker competes for ACL spot, needs your help

28 Sep

Andrew Tinker is on his way to playing Austin City Limits. When a fellow musician friend asked him to vote in ACL’s Sound and the Jury Contest, Tinker thought – well, I’ll enter, too. His band survived three rounds of voting and judging and now is up against four others (3 from Austin) in the final round. The last round is a free show at Antone’s where audience votes pick the winner. He’s got a chartered bus heading to Austin on Wednesday afternoon and coming back after the show that night.

Is he proud? You betcha. “I don’t know how good we are,” Tinker said. “but I know I really believe in what we’re doing. I really love this project – well duh, your name is on it.”

He met up with Day Bow Bow yesterday afternoon at Cool Beans and had a few things to say and a few things he is looking forward to saying about making it as a professional musician.

What’s your history in Denton?
I went to high school in Flower Mound, right out of high school I toured with Polyphonic Spree for a year. That started in 2000, right before my 16 birthday was the first show. (He’s 25 now)

I did that for a couple of years, the band really broke right as I got out of high school. We went on a couple of tours, did some UK stuff, and a US tour and my last deal was in Japan. We finished the second record and that’s when I came to UNT and that’s how I got into Denton. I really wanted to start meeting musicians my age and I wanted to get to write more and perform the tunes I’d been working on.

Denton has world class musicians from all over the place, and this is really my backyard. You know, I grew up in the metroplex all I had to do was come up here and start harvesting.
