The Whiskey Daredevils have accepted an invitation to showcase at the 2012 South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin Texas this March. While the band does not harbor any misconceptions of being signed to a huge record deal and then making videos with Justin Beiber, they do anticipate playing with some cool bands, having uncomfortable conversations with other semi famous musicians, and generally having a good time. Maybe even tricking a legit booking agent into the fold. Dare to dream. The band is currently working out a plan to tour down to Texas and back with some of Ohio's finest rock bands, and selling t-shirts to unsuspecting people in places like Tennessee and Arkansas. We'll let you know the details as they emerge.
Look for the Whiskey Daredevils last show of 2011 at the Empty Glass in beautiful Charleston WV this Saturday night. Making things interesting will be that the band hasn't actually played together in weeks as Gary was busy with fill-in duties as guitar player in Rocket From the Tombs. The entire band went out to see him rip it up at the Beachland last weekend, and suffice to say he held up his end in style. Still, it would have been great if he could have taken the "Final Solution" solo at the end. Ah well... The game plan is to convene in the basement tonight and see if anyone remembers the songs.
In the last two weeks, we have sent out new CD orders to England, Finland, Norway, France, Spain, Germany, Oregon, Texas, New York City and Toledo. What's with you? You haven't bought the best country punkabilly record of 2011? It's cheaper than anywhere else right here, and all the money goes to the band. C'mon! Take a chance! We won't let you down.
