Not sure we've really had funny before

"It's one thing for singers to write beautifully and sing beautifully, but when they're also funny, as in stand-up-comic funny, it makes going to their shows not only pleasurable but also memorable, well beyond the exit ramp headed back home. How many times do you leave a concert and finding yourself quoting lines the singer says in between the songs? Such is the case with Tasmanian native Audrey Auld." ~ Dallas Morning News, August, 2011 

Here's just a bit of that humor......

Bottle Rockets--Thursday, November 15th

We love the Bottle Rockets!  For as long as we can remember, we’ve listened to their records on road trips. Their rocking version of Americana makes the perfect backdrop for cruising down the road.

If you like the first couple Wilco records, you’ll love the Bottle Rockets. Their frontman, Brian Henneman, writes great songs with a common man, mid-Western slant and is a top-notch picker. They are a blast live and the full band will be here for an acoustic show! Check out a tear jerker and a rocker.

While this is a concert at our house, it’s not really a Mechanic Street House Concert. How’s that? This show is part of the Bottle Rockets’ “Living Room Tour” and the band is handling ticket sales themselves. Instead of making a reservation with us, you go to this website and buy a $25 ticket. Tickets go on sale at 1PM (noon Central) on Monday Oct. 29th. Their Living Room shows have been selling out quickly, so move fast if you are interested!
Please come enjoy this amazing band in a rare acoustic living room show.

Audrey Auld

"Singer-songwriter Audrey Auld's heart is in country, folk and Americana music with a presence as big as The Outback. Her songs are the wry and poignant observations of a Tassie girl living in California and Nashville since 2003. Audrey calls it Music with dirt left on it."

Check out her website.

$15 suggested donation, which all goes to the artist.
