Big Weekend

Big 4th of July weekend coming up! Get out to Lynagh's Irish Pub in Lexington to help us kick it off with our buddies Oso Bear. Saturday we're in Knoxville for two performances, and you can hear the first one anywhere in the world on 89.9WDVX or http://www.wdvx.com/webcast.html at noon. That night we're with our buddies Fifth on the Floor and Tim Lee 3 at the Longbranch Saloon. Then Sunday we wrap it all up at the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville with an all-star lineup of TCR, Fifth on the Floor, Ned Van Go, and Static Revival. Plenty of opportunities for you to party w/ TCR, let's get rowdy this weekend!

Road Trips

With the not-so-recent purchase of Jean Claude Slam Van, you may notice that TCR is doing a bit more road work as of late. We've made some really great friends playing in other cities and venues like Ned Van Go, Oso Bear, and Les Honky More Tonkies, go check em out. We're taking a week to catch our breath and then hitting the road again. If you can't catch one of our shows 4th of July weekend, you can surely hear us on the radio. Tune in at www.wdvx.com Saturday July 2nd at noon.

Lots of shows added

Hey internet, we've been adding a lot of shows lately, make sure you keep up with our schedule here: http://www.reverbnation.com/artist/artist_shows/1177038 so you know when and where to catch TCR. Over the next few months we will be all over the bluegrass and Tennessee. We're looking forward to partying with you.

TCR is on the move!

Heading to Tennessee soon for a long weekend of gigging and celebrating Independence Day. As such, transportation is required, and we have snagged a 6th member, lovingly dubbed "Moby Dick," that will do its part to move us and our gear from one town to another. Help us pay for this ride by coming out and making a $5 donation to support local music this Friday night at Lynagh's. In exchange, we will thank you for your generosity by performing a full length concert with Murfreesboro, TN's The Only Sons. Get ready, TCR is on the move!

Looks like April is gonna be busy after all.

So here's the deal. Tomorrow night we are at Lynagh's with a cool local indie rock band "Dunebuggy Attack Battalion." Come out and have an O'Round before we rock your face off. Next Thursday we are performing in the Battle of the Bands at Eddie Montgomery's in Harrodsburg. There's three bands playing and no cover. Make the short drive and show us your support. The following Thursday we are playing at Phoenix Hill Tavern with Jersey's Matt O'Ree Band. Show gets started around 10, $1. On Friday the 22nd we return to Lynagh's for a show we are very excited about with Murfreesboro, Tennessee's The Only Sons. Awesome band that fits perfectly with our style. Check em out at www.theonlysons.net


We're on a string of 4 weeks so far with gigs played, and it's about to get longer. This Friday, on a short notice booking, we'll be stepping outside of Lexington for the first time in our short history when we invade Louisville and open for underground rockabilly hall of fame member Art Adams at the Third Street Dive. Despite our busy schedule, we've still been writing new material and have debuted three new tunes throughout the duration of these last four shows, including our new favorite closer "Cashville." Next week, we'll be hitting Buster's with our friends Atomic Solace and Gunner Preston & The One Night Stand, followed by a 4-week hiatus from Lexington. Catch us while you can.

Two Fridays

With our CD release party behind us and a hell of a good time with Jason and the Punknecks at Al's Bar last night, we are kicking this Thursday night thing to the curb for a while and getting ready for a pair of Friday shows. Check us out a week from today at Al's Bar with friends Atomic Solace. The following Friday, we will be at Buster's helping the Fleshtones kick off their 2011 tour with a wild time. We've got a couple other shows currently lined up for the future, including an April 22nd get-together with The Only Sons of Murfreesboro, TN at Lynagh's Irish Pub. Mark your calendars!
