Since the overloads at Facebook like to extort us for money just for us to get our message out to you fans. So we are going to start to take a pro-active approach by updating the site weekly starting today. In these weekly updates we’ll try to summarize what has been going on and concentrate it in one post instead of hoping you ran into through the ether.
Lets see where do we start? Well since it’s Monday the 16th tonight if I were you I wouldn’t want to miss Autarx play their tour kick off show at the legendary Uncle Lou’s LMGA. We had the pleasure of making their tour only super limited edition cassette. There is only fifty of these that exist and the only way you can get your hands on them is to grip one from the band at the dates below:
So its been a few days since we have made it back from Austin for our showcases. Its taken some time to decompress and really take it all in. I still have trouble recalling everything that transpired over the 3 days of showcases in Texas smack dab in the middle of one of the biggest music conferences on earth.
We departed on Tuesday the 15th we settled on a 3 vehicle convoy consisting of Room Full of Strangers 15-passenger van, a rental van, and a honda hybrid. We loaded all the gear into the respective vehicles. We brought enough gear for what we joke that one of the venues could literally burned down and we would still be able to put on a show. The only thing we didn’t foresee happening was having our sound engineer ghost on us like 25 minutes before we were set to leave. Not like we were gonna let that stop us we just decided to split his duties among the remaining touring party. Continue reading →
Well the day has finally come. We have been really putting the mustard on over here at HQ. Putting together not only these hand-crafted mixtapes and fancy CDs. but also putting together three strictly commercial showcases in Austin Texas. Spanning 5 stages in three distinct locations.

I am finally posting my tour journal. I guess this is just for all you curious cats who don’t get to go rolling around the country with a bunch of stinky punks in your van and wondered what it is like. Hopefully a peek into my perspective will satisfy some of your voyeuristic desires. This tour occurred in November. If you wanna read it here it comes. One day at a time….
While cleaning around the house we stumbled upon a dusty box. When we opened it it was to our surprise that we had discovered some long lost copies of the now four year old split cassette with Chicken & Whiskey / Tam Tam The Sandwich Man & The Magical Sugar Cookies. These have been long out of print this was for a tour they did together way back in 2011. Tam Tam was headed out to SXSW and Chicken & Whiskey split back off home after Houston.
