In case you've been living under a rock for the last few years, the Koffin Kats are a punk rock/ rockabilly group from Detroit that just got back from their European Tour. They are currently recording their 10th anniversary album and are planning a fall tour. So make sure to catch them before these busy guys head out again.
We've talked about The Goddamn Gallows a few times now, and hopefully that has encouraged you to go out and see them because you need to. I even had the chance to do an interview with them earlier this year that you can read here. Basically, if you like bands that are crazy fun, use different instruments from the norm (washboard, accordion, banjo, etc.) and most importantly, have a fire breather, then you need to check them out. They have been all over the place lately and will be on their way again after this show, so don't miss this chance!
The Matadors are a self-labeled 'horrorbilly' band from Canada. They have been around since the mid 90's with five albums and one on the way. They may not have all of the original members still, but they seem to be just as crazy and fun.
The menu for the night will include pulled pork, burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, spicy coleslaw and chips all for $3-4 each. The show is at 7 p.m., but get there early to get your food. Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. You can purchase them ahead of time at the bar or online here. But before you do that, we're giving you an opportunity to win a pair of tickets, courtesy of Mike from Small's! If you'd like a chance to win tickets and save yourself some money for more BBQ, then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and the subject line 'Backyard BBQ!' We'll draw the winner Saturday morning so make sure to check your email!
