Howdy!

 

It's hard to believe that this Friday will complete 3 years of happy and not-so-happy hours at Flipnotics.  Thanks to all of you for supporting the cause througout the years.  2012 was great year bouncing back after my broken leg which took me out of a lot of 2011.  Here's a list of highlights, lowlights, and ball shots from 2012

 

  • produced "Hope, Pray, Fail" comic for Austin Music Weekly during SXSW (FXFU!)
  • rocked Laurie Gallardo and Austin Facial Hair Club's SXSW party at the Grackle with a special lineup, the Bearded Clams!
  • played lots of dirty dirty shows at Jovita's before they got busted.  they had the best staff!
  • played the Cactus Cafe with Navasota String Band and the Whiskey Shivers (this was a big night for the Whiskey Shivers as well as they played with legendary bluegrass picker, Ralph Stanley, right before rushing over to play the Cactus!)
  • recorded with the mythical beast that is Ron Flynt.  Don't go there.  Cousin Bill, I love you dearly!
  • played one of the strangest shows of my life at Strange Brew with some great friends(Jacob Jaeger, Kelly Galvin, Bluebird Specials)!  South Austin, represent!  That was interesting, we should maybe do it again.
  • finally went on the road and played in Oklahoma, the Marbrigde Ranch, somewhere near Wimberly (I think), and Salado.  Round Rock, we're coming for you in 2013!
  • became a wedding band, we're cheap and damn good so keep us in mind!  Congratulations to Carlos and Jess! 
  • our Samhain Special went viral on Youtube and had to get a penicilin shot 
  • MC'd the Whiskey Shivers "Hawg Falcon Variety Shows" at Antone's and got to tell variations of my Bill Cosby joke over 10 times!  Hey! Hey! Hey!  Here what I say!  That's OK!  
  • Debut of "Honky Tonk Holidaze" musical and comic raised over $1600 for Austin Pets Alive!  Friends were made.  Good times were had.  Good deeds were done, and a few dirty ones as well...dirt cheap, I imagine.  Is there really any other way?

 

I'm sure I'm leaving out a few shining moments, but one thing is for sure: none of it would be possible without your support!  Thank you for doing what you do.  We love you all for coming out to shows and having fun with us.  Let's ring in 2013 Flipnotics-style this Friday!  Griffus P. Spliffus will be performing on his silly-string-shooting slide guitar and Jacob Jaeger will be sitting in with us on guitar as well!  Cheers to a great year in 2013!

 

See you Friday!!

PRESS

"Everybody in this town's a songwriter: your bartender, your boyfriend, your banker. Ogden is, too, but in the context of Wild Bill, everybody else sounds the same."  Chase Hoffberger, Austin Chronicle

"With Wild Bill, you don’t just get a folky, mellow acoustic guitar show. At a Wild Bill show, you, as the audience, experience an all-out blast of demented good times, sordid tales with intriguing finales, extra flourishes and personal touches that only a tripped-out troubadour like Wild Bill can conjure. All that, and deviled eggs.You have to see it to believe it."  Laurie Gallardo, KUT radio

"Sitting down with Wild Bill is kind of like meeting a virile cross between Jackie Gleason and a surly, pre-Scientology Beck for coffee and realizing you might have been better off with a beer or two instead. "  Ed Kiaune, Austin City Sphere
