Heartless Bastards at La Zona Rosa

The title of this post may lead you to believe that I am referring to the people who set the drink prices at La Zona Rosa and they ARE heartless bastards. However, coincidentally, the band Heartless Bastards play La Zona Rosa tomorrow night in support of their latest album Arrow. The album was recorded and produced right here in Austin by Jim Eno of Spoon so, if you're a Jim Eno spotter you'll probably want to be at tomorrow night's show if only for that reason. For those of us who were lucky enough to catch the Heartless Bastards' set at Fun Fun Fun Fest last year we can attest to the fact that the band is in top form. The new songs are fantastic live with loads of energy and the band has never sounded like a more cohesive unit. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, you should probably get yourself a ticket to tomorrow night's show.

Playing the support slot for tomorrow night's Heartless Bastards show will be David Vandervelde who you might know from his work with a little band called Wilco. Perhaps you've heard of them? Ok, that's a bit misleading. Vandervelde has actually worked with Jay Bennett who is IN Wilco, which is way closer than you've ever been to working with Wilco so back off! Vandervelde is touring in support of an upcoming album. For now, he has released More Than You Can Feel as a digital single via Secretly Canadian records. You can download that song for free right here
