The Authors at Lambert's Tonight

One of my favorite local bands is playing one of the city's most over-looked venues tonight. You can catch local, power-pop-rock outfit The Authors upstairs at Lambert's BBQ and enjoy one of the city's great intimate performance spaces. The venue is next to city hall, placing it quite a distance from the hub-bub of the Red River District. I feel like its location means it is often overlooked but the sound is fantastic and the room itself is small so you get a very intimate experience. The show starts at 10:30 with a $5 cover charge, The Authors will be sharing the bill with Denton band, Western Giants as well as Ladycop who came all the way from Brooklyn just to rock out with you.

I'm not really sure what the set times will be tonight but I can pretty much guarantee that none of these bands will disappoint you so show up early and stay late. I'd especially make a point to see Ladycop simply because they made such a long journey for YOU.

Denton isn't as far to travel as Brooklyn but come on y'all we know how bad traffic on I-35 can be and Western Giants took the time to make that journey. I don't know as much about them, musically, but I do trust the taste of my friends over at Above the Radar, who booked them to play this gig.

Just a little side-note to end this dispatch, if you haven't checked out The Authors LP, Get Haunted I highly suggest you do so. It was one of the best local releases of 2010 and I don't say that lightly.
