Well, this weekend is the big AMERICAN holiday. Where we should be celebrating the fact that we are lucky enough to have the freedoms and liberties that we currently have. In other countries? This podcast wouldn’t be possible. Well, OMBG is going to celebrate it the way it should be celebrated! With music, beer, babes, and BBQ!
Friday night in Victoria is a GREAT show I recommend you go to. It’s at Downtown Bar and Grill.. starts around 10ish, and is only $5 a head. The entertainment will include Toxic Fuse (local Victoria band), Viet Ruse, Cavegirl, and The Loveletter. Great bands, all of them! OMBG will be at this show collecting interviews and handing out swag. Look for one of us and say you listen to the podcast! We’ll be sure to get you something cool.
Here’s the [EVENT PAGE] for more information.
If your not in the Victoria area on Friday and want to try out something cool, check out the DOWNTOWN ART WALK in Corpus Christi. It’s a celebration of all things art! Music, painters, dancing, beer, ya know, everything that matters. Next month we plan on setting up a booth here. It’s a very cool thing. The main area is at the park downtown. From there, you can jump on a bus, complete with a band, and be taken around to the different events all over downtown corpus! Support the arts, without them we’re all screwed.
On Friday, there is also another show that I’d recommend you check out. The band? Shotgun Party. And they blow my mind. The Victoria Advocate had a write up about them in the Get Out section. Here is the EVENT INFORMATION. Go, you won’t be dissapointed.
Now Saturday, OMBG will be in SHINER, TX, my hometown. Why you might ask? Well it’s the annual Half Moon Holidays celebration. I’m going to be in charge of beer at the beer wagon from 2 – 4, come buy a beer from me and give me a tip…say you listen to the podcast! I’ll have some goodies to hand out to ya if do. You might see us at the parade in the morning, and you’ll definately see us at Howard’s once my beer wench shift is over.
What exactly is Half Moon Holidays?? Well it’s a nice little piece of Texas Americana. In the morning, there is a parade, during the day there are food and vendor booths set up around Green Dickson Park. There are kiddy rides and events located throughout. And in the far back of the park is my favorite…. the BBQ teams! At around 9 or so, the fireworks go off and the night ends with a huge dance in the park. (For a slight fee… we don’t believe in cover bands so we WON’T be there.)
At some point on Saturday, we will be recording a podcast from a secret location in Shiner, TX. Want to join in? Come see me at the beer booth earlier in the day and we might be able to allow it.
Now, you might not be able to make it to any of these events this weekend, and that’s fine. But there is a way to keep up with our shenanigans. Follow us on our TWITTER. Tim and I will be sure to update it frequently!
Support local music fools! <3
