A mere handful of hours after yours truly blearily slapped up a post on how local indie-folks The Western Civilization (about whom you can read more here) won themselves a spot on the Warped Tour and are playing H-town next week, I logged back in to the email to find, lo and behold, a message from Reggie of the Western Civ.
Here's the gist of what he said: in spite of the "$5 over $10 under" noise on the show flyer, apparently the band is keen to get you, me, and everybody (of age, at least) we know out to Club XO/XO Bar & Lounge for the show, all for free, thus making the flyer more accurately read, "$0 over $10 under." Seems the band's been handed an unlimited guest list for the 21+ crowd, and hey, they'll gladly put you on it so you can come on out. (Sorry, 18-and-uppers; age discrimination sucks, but there you go...)
Just send a message to the band at "westerncivbooking" at "gmail dot com" or via their Myspace if you're interested (and yes, trust me, you are) with your name and the name of anybody you want to bring with. Heck, you can even just put in your name and the number of fellow beings you'd like to drag along with you. Then just show up, rock (gently) out, and enjoy.
Reggie also says Via Audio, with whom they're playing is very, very cool -- and he's spot-on, going by what they've got up on their Myspace. The music's kinda Palomar-esque, sweet and smart and insistent all at the same time. Oh, and the video for "Presents" that's up on their Website disturbs me in a way I really can't describe. Tourmates Jukebox The Ghost aren't bad, either, a little Death Cab for Cutie-ish to my ears.
So there you go -- you get to see one of the best bands in town, plus two respectable out-of-towners, all for zero dollars. Can't beat that w/a stick...
