Green Steam Circus Tonight

Remember that venue The Backyard and how they built a strip mall around it and they ended up getting squeezed out even though they were there first? Well guess what? There's a NEW The Backyard and according to their website it's only 3 songs from downtown Austin. Unfortunately due to road congestion it may take you a couple of albums to get home. Believe me the trip out to Bee Cave is worth it. Or is it Bee Caves? I can never get it correct.

If you feel like checking out that new venue, tonight is be the night to go. The Green Steam Circus is rolling through town tonight! Check out the full spectrum of what this party is all about with this handy-dandy widget.

The free sampler, which the widget refers to features an album's worth of free music from the artists who will be showcasing at the Circus tonight including: a Bassbin Twins' mix set and a never-released remix by Klever as well as favorites by White Ghost Shivers, Lions, Abney Park, and Los Banditos.

The idea of being able to park at the Backyard is so exciting the fact that there is a cool event as well is just a bonus. The last time I went there was in 2007 and my car got effed up and then I almost fell on the journey back to my car but that's probably 'cause I was drunk. Of course I was the passenger, Bloggy does not promote, condone, or accept drinking and driving. Also, bring some MF earplugs y'all chances are they have a new soundsystem they'll want to show-off. I know I would.

Also, how cool is it that these party runs the spectrum from White Ghost Shivers to the Bassbin Twins?
