We’re honored to share the stage with the legend Reverend Horton Heat on Thursday, Nov. 6 with our friends Thomas McDonald & The Record Collection at Shaka’s!!! We’ve been on the grind playing a busy schedule across the region like Lady Nawlins’ Voodoo Street Fest in Richmond and Artistree Festival in Norfolk, which was featured by Whurk Magazine! Keep your eyes open for copies of Whurk at places like Elliot’s Fairgrounds, O’Connor Brewing Co. & The Parlor on Granby!
Here’s a sneak peek at two brand new songs that will be included on our upcoming 7″, which we expect to drop in the early going of 2015!!! While the songs will probably go through some changes before pressing, one thing’s for sure: Dirty Tom’s GOIN’ TO THE BOG!!!
Huge thanks to Julie Ferguson for capturing these image from our set at the Three Bad Jacks show at Wonderland in Richmond on Sept. 26! We were bummed to learn that Wonderland, one of the places that first welcomed us into Richmond, has shut its doors. Here’s to hoping this is just a temporary closure and one of RVA’s most FUN venues will bounce back. Either way, thanks to Chad, Derek and the staff for the opportunities to play and the memories and friends we made in these friendly confines. EDIT 10/10: STOKED to see Chad and Derek’s #damnthemansavewonderland campaign take fire in Richmond!!!
From here, we’re set to play Chelsea West Fest to benefit the Hope House Foundation in Norfolk this Saturday at 4 p.m. SHARP! We’ll be getting the crowd fired up for headliners Souther Culture On The Skids and many more great local acts! See you there!
If you were at Shakas on Sat. Sept. 20, then you felt the unbridled energy poured out by all who performed! As always, our friends Creepazoids from Richmond killed it before Koffin Kats put on an pyschobilly clinic!! The show marked our second show with our new guitarist Bennett, and the we’re amped on the results so far!
We’ll be back at it in Richmond this Friday night! You’re not going to want to miss our show with rockabilly kingpins Three Bad Jacks at Wonderland, 9 p.m., 21+.
For those of you in the 757 area code, be sure to tune into 96.1 FM, 96X, TONIGHT (9/24) for “Old Dogs” hitting the airwaves on “The 7:57,” the station’s local music showcase! Showtime is 7:57 p.m.
Until then, here’s some photos by Robert Escue (thanks for shooting!) from the Shaka’s show!
We’re stoked to welcome Bennett Wales to the lineup of The Wet Boys! If you’ve ever seen his band Safeplace play, you already know we’ve gained an awesome dude and an extremely talented musician to our sound. Next up for us, we’ll be playing with The Lonely Teardrops at The Belmont House of Smoke in Norfolk on Friday, Sept. 12!!
