Gearing up for the CD release

Our new CD "Welcome To Gatesville" comes out September 16th, and things are moving a lime a minute getting ready for the release.

We are doing an in-store at Waterloo records in Austin on Sept 15th at 5pm. The band will be playing a short set, the CD will be available for a discounted price and there will be FREE BEER. The following day, Sept. 16th we will be having our CD Release party at the Continental Club, featuring Back Porch Marry (10pm), Gatesville(11:15pm) and Honkey (12:30am). Cover is $7. Come on out and start the weekend early with a beer and a blast of Southern boogie.

Thanks to the support of the fans and a few good friends, we are now working with Jenny Bendel at Rock 'n Load for press and internet promotions and Jenni Finlay from Jenni Finlay Promotions for radio promotion on the CD. We're doing our best to reach out and find all the Junkyard fans, Southern Rockers and Americana people that are out there and get'em all over to Gatesville. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, bring your dog and a cooler of beer. The party' is on, and it's in Gatesville.
