party dolls “kindly leave”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

party

well, this is kind of exciting, at least to me, and probably/hopefully a lot of you folks. two of my favorite “newer” bands/artists, the district attorneys and ted stone got together to form party dolls. well, let me clear this up, party dolls are comprised of lead attorney and now lead doll, drew breskin along with frank keith iv and walker beard, tedo stone and jeremy wheatley of crooked fingers. the crew was assembled at last years valentines day show at athen’s caledonia lounge – the other members of the attorneys werent able to make it and thus party dolls was born. its kind of a supergroup, if you will. the record they recorded, which is due out one year to the date they played their first gig, love wars baby via this is american music. thus far i have listened to it a few times, and g’damn if it aint something special. me thinks i need a little more time to let it all sink in, but im damn near positive you’ll be hearing a lot more about love wars baby, from me and hopefully a lot of other folks in the coming days, month, year….

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

wowza! i havent seen too many of the other lineups out there, but me thinks, and of course i am biased, you’d be hard pressed to find a better couple shows to check out while y’all are galavanting around sxsw. so with out further adieu here are the lineups to the two shows. also thanks to the sponsors, listed below, who helped make this possible. most of the bands can be found via this american music, if not their respective websites have been linked to. wednesday’s party, btw, has free torchy’s tacos!
