Happy 2009! We sure hope that it is a giant improvement from 2008. Anyhow, we have a few new things to report to you and here they are.
Mike Saputo has completed the artwork for our 2009 SXSW poster (check out the tour date page to view it)... and we have pretty much finalized our 2009 SXSW line up @ The Room 710 which is now the following:
12mn Shame Club
11pm Mos Generator
7pm Whitey Morgan & The 78's
6pm Dixie Witch
4pm Tia Carrera
3pm Sabbath Crow
2pm Sun Gods In Exile
1pm Magnet School
We have a few early spots to fill yet, but we will be working those out with the folks at the club as we are in talks of opening the club up for a "Rock n' Roll Breakfast" and starting the day off nice and early in the morning. Looks like March 20th is going to be a very like day for Small Stone & the Room 710 staff.
Please Welcome Maine's Sun Gods In Exile to The Small Stone Roster. The band which consists of past members of both Cortez and Ocean, have been working on their debut album over at Mad Oak in December and we loved what we we hearing. Classic American rock in the vein of both Dixie Witch and The Brought Low, with a hint of early Aerosmith tossed in for good measure. Sounds like a winner to us. The bands debut album will be hitting the streets later this year.
