Oryx and Crake & Dale Watson In-Stores!
On September 11th, we'll have new local band Oryx and Crake playing the store. O&C have been getting some stellar write-ups on local blogs, and we're happy to be the first store they play at. If you wanna see them live beforehand, their CD release party is at The EARL this Saturday, August 28th. We've got their self-titled debut album on a listening station here at the store, so stop by and check it out or try out a few songs on the band's MySpace page.
On September 22nd, we'll have legendary alt-country songwriter Dale Watson, a man the All Music Guide describes thusly: "A staunch adherent of old-style honky tonk and Bakersfield country, Dale Watson has positioned himself as a tattooed, stubbornly independent outsider only interested in recording authentic country music. As a result, he has never sold many records, but his music has been championed by numerous critics and alternative country fans." Count us as the latter!
We'll announce times, other goodies, etc. about these in-store performances as they get closer. For now, though, save the date!
