The Gets at The Jack Daniel’s Saloon

Posted by    |    June 27th, 2013 at 5:34 pm

gets2If you’ve never heard of or listened to Dallas’ The Gets I would like to use part of their bio as an introductory description of them and their music. “Imagine gliding on the wind in a kaleidoscope sky with your own special parade of garden gnomes dancing, singing, and giggling behind you. While surfacing on the horizon is a unique sense of the unknown yet every inch of the universe combines well enough through this spectrum to restore confidence in each step you take closer to inner-self peace and happiness….and since you’re there, say hello to THE GETS!!”

While my experience listening to their music wasn’t quite as ethereal, the description does allow you to get a feel for their the rock/acoustic,indie,experimental sound. The Gets will be bringing their upbeat and eclectic sound the the Jack Daniel’s Saloon July 5th, giving you a fun addition to your 4th of July Weekend. Go here to check out some of their songs and other upcoming shows.

When: Friday July 5th, 8pm

Where: Jack Daniel’s Saloon

Tickets: 8$

Mac Millers talent for rhyming has been generating buzz since 2007 when he released his first two solo albums The Jukebox and Highlife, this combined with the reputation he built within the Pittsburg freestyle/battle circuit  landed him a record deal with Rostrum Records in 2010.

Since then his early local buzz and social media dominance have translated into sold out shows across the world and given Mac the title of the first independent artist since 1995 to debut atop the Billboard charts with his album “Blue Slide Park“, all happening with little to no radio play. Take a listen to Mac’s newest album Watching Movies with the Sound Off and check out the  t teaser from his Macadelic tour if you can’t wait for Wednesday.
