Be In The Movie!! (last time we write this- promise!)

Austin’s Waterloo Productions is making a film a la Song Remains the Same about Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers, and we’ll be filming bits and pieces over the rest of this month. The film is already slotted for entry at SXSW, Sundance, Toronto FF and others. That’s exciting already, but wait- there’s more!

Friday May 22nd at the Continental Club, during our show with Two Tons of Steel, we will be filming live footage of the show, the dancers, the audience, everything. And we want you to help us make this film! We want you to come be a part of it! So make sure you mark your calendar and come on down to the Continental Club on Friday May 22 to be in the audience and in the film!! We play from midnight to 2am, and promise to put on a hell of a show!! Looking forward to seeing your smiling faces there :-)

Shake Rattle and Roll for Mama!

At least in the Austin area… ;-) we’re playing a LOT of shows this month, including a handful of shows this weekend just in time for Mother’s Day AND the heavy thunderstorms rolling through this part of Texas!

Starting off tonight at Riley’s Tavern- the honky tonk with the oldest post-prohibition liquor license in Texas- for a night of rockin’ and rollin’ (and yes, a whole lotta shakin’, come on!!) from 9-12. If you’ve never been to Riley’s, you absolutely should come to this show!

Then Sunday, we’ll be playing alongside the Bluebonnets (!) at the American Federation of Music and Bullock Museum’s Mother’s Day Free Concert from 5-6. The show was supposed to be held in that lovely area in front of the museum, but due to severe thunderstorms coming through, has been moved inside. Folks are still encouraged to bring the whole family, picnics, blankets, folding chairs- a party!- to celebrate Mom! So while it’s rockin’ and rollin’ outside, we’ll be doing our share of that inside too ;-)

And last but not least! Monday we’ll be back at Sam’s in San Antonio for their Monday San Antonio Swing Society shindig- ALL the dancers come out and have a ball, literally ;-) and we promise to shake rattle and roll all night long (well, from 8:30-10:30)!

So let it grumble outside. This weekend, we’ll celebrate Mom (and the rain) in our own rockin’ rootsabilly way- see you there!
