This Friday :: The Great Nostalgic Album Release Party w/ {{{Sunset}}}, The Sour Notes at Hole in the Wall


This Friday sure is a busy night (w/ Death Cab for Cutie, Monarchs, Paul Green School of Rock, The Tunnels all playing shows) and although we mentioned this show on our weekly recommendations on Monday, we thought it deserved a post of it's own.

Relatively new Austin band, The Great Nostalgic is performing this Friday at Hole in the Wall with {{{Sunset}}} and The Sour Notes to celebrate the release of their self-titled debut (read glowing reviews from Austin Town Hall and Two Groove). Bonus discs, which include remixes from Many Birthdays and Businessman DJs, in addition to a music video for "Queen and Country" will be given out as well with the purchase of the new album ($8). The show starts at 10PM and will feature guest musicians from Pink Nasty and Hard Proof Afrobeat's horn section.
