Tonight is the last chance to see the Christmas splendor that is "Honky
Tonk Holidaze". We're at Antone's tonight with a super bill including
Mike and the Moonpie and the Whiskey Shivers! Doors are at 8pm and there is
a $5 cover benefiting Austin Pets Alive!
Thank you to everyone who has been out to
see the show(s), your support has been greatly appreciated by all of us involved.
to the bands who participated including The Lonesome Heroes, The Bluebird Specials,
and Mike and the Moonpies. I'd like to especially thank The Whiskey Shivers
who have been overly generous with their time and commitment to making these shows
happen. Not only did they learn 7 new songs for the play, each member is also
acting in all 3 performances as well! For a band to agree to do something
like this, not to mention pulling it off at the level they have, is rare. They
are a very talented band of hard workers, and have knocked this project outta the
also like to thank my dramaturg, Kristin Harrison, who A) taught me what the heck
a "dramaturg" was and why I needed one, and B) provided me with much needed
guidance to keep my head from exploding while trying to do a million things I've
never done before and/or how no idea how to do them.
Also, thanks to my lovely
and talented wife, Amandalin, for all the support and spousal pyschotherapy along
the way! These shows literally wouldn't have happened without her, so if you
see her, give her a big hug and for God's sake, buy the lady a drink!
