On Thursday, June 24th Brent Amaker and the Rodeo will play the Crocodile with the Purrs and Battle Hymns. I will have more on the Purrs later as this is a big night for them too – it’s a CD release party for their latest CD, Tearing Down Paisley Garden.
BAR just signed to Spark & Shine Records, a new label based in Seattle (and in Hamburg, Germany) and are set to release Please Stand By on October 19th. Please Stand By is BAR’s third album and I can’t wait to hear it! – first here’s a listen to Brent Amaker and the Rodeo’s new song,
Tiger Inside Her: Tiger Inside Her.mp3. This song is one of two BAR recorded with Gary Reynolds at Electrokitty. Amaker says:
We will be playing the new songs at the Crocodile on 6/24. Fans will
also be able to hear many of the new tracks from Please Stand By. As
a special treat, former Rodeo drummer Curtis Andreen will be returning
to play percussion and sing with us for a new six piece version of the
band. We will also have local burlesque icon Bunny Monroe on stage.
It’s gonna be crazy!
BAR will be at Bumbershoot this year in an appearance that is long overdue. I am expecting a lot from this band; I’ve loved their CDs and shows and I think this will be a pivotal year for them.
Get tix here.
