August & J at the Jack Daniels Saloon

Posted by    |    July 29th, 2013 at 6:37 pm

AJ2In support of their debut full length album entitled 40, August & J will be stopping by the Jack Daniel’s Saloon for a live performance this Saturday, August 3rd.  The Denton based duo is coming off a ten-year break from working with one another, a re-initiation prompted by J’s desire to write songs again. While writing and playing his new material J kept hearing August’s voice singing the lyrics. So J called August up one day to see if he wanted to start making music together again and soon after that they started writing and recording songs.

The resulting album combines both catchy melodies that get stuck in your head with powerful guitar riffs and a touch of southern sensibility. August & J’s video for their newest single “The Moon” has already reached 1,500,000 views on You Tube and is now playing on MTV, VH1 and CMT.


Sublime with Rome 7/26/13

sublime-with-rome-yours-truly-300x300It’s been more than ten years since Bradley Nowell died of a drug overdose in 1996, causing a halt in Sublimes musical career. Fast-forward to 2009 in which Rome Ramirez is recruited to be the new lead singer thus creating Sublime with Rome. Rome has got the voice; it’s enough like Bradley’s that it fits the music but at the same time there’s enough difference to where he doesn’t sound like a rip-off.

Some people might be upset that Sublime with Rome doesn’t sound like original Sublime, but they shouldn’t let that keep them from checking out the band’s new incarnation because they’re good and definitely worth listening to. This Friday you’ll get a chance to see and hear what I’m talking about at South Side Ballroom as they play the album Sublime in its entirety, and an opportunity to hear that album live is one that no Sublime fan should miss.

When: Friday, July 26th

Doors @ 7 p.m. 

Show @ 8 p.m.

Tickets: $39.50
