Well kids, word on the street is those adorable and industrious little interns over at Knuckle Rumbler put tonight's Ghost Room show together without any help from Mom and Dad. As someone who has NO idea how something like that is done I just want to pinch their little cheeks and tell 'em how proud I am of them. In lieu of the pinching and hugging I've decided helping to promote might be more useful. Although, I'm not gonna lie, I still might have to pinch some rosy little cheeks and I don't mean their faces y'all!
Anywho, all of the bands tonight are local and/or have local ties so consider this a sort of best of the best according to the KR interns. Shapes Have Fangs will be headlining tonight and will let you know how Garage-Surf-Indie-Rock is done in the middle of Texas (for those of you who were wondering).

Rayon Beach will also be playing a set tonight. If you like your garage-rock to be raucous and soaked in reverb and irony then you're going to love Rayon Beach. Fun fact about Rayon, it is produced from naturally occurring polymers, it is neither a truly synthetic fiber nor a natural fiber; it is a semi-synthetic. Fun fact about the beach, it's sandy or rocky depending on where you are.

Even though Eets Feats and The Daze play first and second, respectively, you'll still want to be there in time for their sets. For one, they are quality bands and for another there's alleged to be some gratis booze that is first come first served. Specifically the first 100 people through the door will receive a free adult beverage, most likely of the Lone Star Beer variety, which is certainly nothing to scoff at.

So, basically, the long and short of tonight's show is for $5 you get 4+ hours of live music, the chance to get gratis beer, you can have your photo taken by a professional (or two) and even win tickets to other Knuckle Rumbler events. All of this without setting foot on 6th Street OR Red River! You gotta love that right?

For the record, that song title for The Daze is totally me editorializing I don't know the proper title for that tune.
