WSJR Records Party @ Time Bandits
We've been so busy this week that we almost forgot to say some thank yous to everyone who helped make our record release party such a huge success last Friday night.
It's really hard to do head counts at free keggers in Denton, but we estimate that more than a couple hundred people came by throughout the night to catch five great performances, and most of them stayed for quite a long time. We started getting a little concerned when 60% of the crowd seemed to disappear after the keg floated at around 1030PM, but we were pleasantly surprised when we realized that everyone had just taken a little trip over to Midway Mart to pick up their own stuff before returning to the party.
I still think that Time Bandits is easily one of the best places to see a show in the area, due both the uniqueness of the space and the general air of positivity that seems to permeate throughout it, and despite encountering a few of the sound issues that are practically a given at DIY shows, we couldn't have asked for a better location for our party, nor for more helpful people running the sound and helping set everything up.
So thanks to Time Bandits, Fight Bite, Darktown Strutters, Orange Coax, Shane English, Animal Forces, Secret Bangs, DL (what a guy!) and everyone else who helped us throughout the evening (including the Denton Police for showing up and deciding NOT to bust us for once.) Mattie has some pictures here if you'd like to see them.
