    December 29th @ The Live Oak Music Hall & Lounge www.theliveoak.com Doors - 9:00 The Gourds - 10:30 Fish Fry Bingo - 9:30 Cover - $17 ADV / $20 DOS Tickets on Sale Now http://tinyurl.com/dxd67th The Gourds http://www.thegourds.com/ Austin, Texas' The Gourds have never been much on sentiment. Since the band started defining Gourds Music, as it has come to be known, with Dem's Good Beeble in 1997 and the quirky Stadium Blitzer in 1998, they have chugged through America fueled by music and a near-pathological need for a good time. And while songwriters Kevin Russell and Jimmy Smith have written the most dense, reference-laden country songs of the last 10 years and almost single-handedly made a place for deep thought in a genre of "Honky Tonk Badonkadonks" they have, for the most part, shied away from the tear-in-my-beer ballads that made country music a commercial powerhouse over the last 50 years. Fish Fry Bingo http://fishfrybingo.com/ Banjos, electric washboards, wah pedals, boots, pots & pans, kazoos, spoons, upright bass, mandolins, jugs, train whistles, guitars... Fish Fry Bingo is a raucous, crowd pleasin' 5-piece hillbilly jug band from the great state of Texas. In the last 6 years, they have played millions of shows, from craft beer festivals and bars to the bed of a flatbed truck to the rooftop of a fancy hotel by a concrete pond. They are always thirsty and they drink a lot of beer. If you get the chance to see them live... do it! Their music is loose and fun and their dancin is dang near spectacular!
