GOAT RADIO CD RELEASE with THE LOW ZARS Mickey's 5/13

Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.

GOAT RADIO CD RELEASE with THE LOW ZARS Mickey's 5/13

GOAT RADIO CD RELEASE
THE LOW ZARS
FRIDAY MAY 13
MICKEY'S TAVERN ON WILLY STREET
10:30 PEE EM


It says in the good book that sheep go to heaven and goats go to hell. What it doesn’t mention is that goats also have an affinity for searing guitars, thumping beats and lyrics from another time and place.

GOAT RADIO, based in Madison, Wisconsin, consists of five young gentlemen, all veterans of the Madison/Milwaukee music scenes. Former (and current) bands they’ve played (or still play) with include The Randy Cliffs, Knuckel Drager, Exene Cervenka's Original Sinners, The Mighty Deerlick, The Lackloves, The Pugilists, The Low Czars and many more.

It's been referred to as "Southern Rock," but it's really more like Midwestern Southern Rock. Kind of like a less-drunk (but still kinda drunk) Replacements with a pedal steel and weirder lyrics.

The Goat's debut long-player, "Portrait of the Band as a Young Goat," is mixed, mastered (by Joe Gastwirt, no less!) and WILL BE RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC AT THIS HERE EVENT. OMG.



THE LOW ZARS did a gig years ago, probably a wedding or something, where they had to play "Brown Eyed Girl" and the urge to do it as a reggae with Cookie Monster-style vocals had the band in fits of giggles for a good hour at practice. Since then the CM himself has contacted the band and informed them that, since they have shamed not just Van Morrison but all devotees of Cookie Monster world-wide, they are not allowed to use the letter "C" in their name. We presume this is due to the heavy copyright control of "C is for Cookie."

That being said, expect the unexpectable when the LZ show off the stylings of their "new" singer and replacement guitarist, who can play serious circles around that tall guy they fired. They've gotten a bit more heavy duty in the past months and are suddenly covering Hawkwind and old Motown and shit. It's gonna be a beautiful thing and you should really come down and take it all in.

Zar Zars

Also, if anyone was gonna get fired for his guitar playing it would be me. Everyone should encourage the tall man to help us sing some songs on Friday.

Guitar Zars.

Don't know about the tall man, but I did pitch the idea of singing a couple to The Delivery Man when I saw him yesterday.

The Tall Man and The Delivery Man should both be in tow for Friday. Here's hoping my ears stop ringing from practice by then.

There's way too much code-speak going on here.

The eagle has landed in the outhouse steakhouse. Internal security has been compromised. HORSE FRY!

I'm hoping to sing "Baby Blue" as I heard it on the radio today. Then I'll slink offstage and resume drinkins
