The Details: I’d be lying to you if I said that I knew a whole lot about the Texas Hippie Coalition because I don’t. I managed to see them only once before in concert and that was a special appearance at the annual CMJ party held by Skateboard Marketing over at the Bowery Poetry Club. It was a solid set but to my knowledge the band had not returned since that time. I guess the best way to analyze the style is to compare it as a not too distant kin of Hell Yeah so fans of that band might want to check them out n the stage. This all makes me excited to announce the latest contest thanks to our friends at Livenation who want to put some PiercingMetal fans into the Gramercy Theatre where the band will appear with Eve To Adam as direct support for their “Highway Robbery Tour”. The NYC show will also feature Black Water Rising and Eye Ra Haze. Read more on how to enter this one.
When and Where: Saturday, July 27th at Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd St. NYC)
To Participate: In my never ending quest to help the Metal music scene of our great Metropolis, I am keeping this one easy. Simply tell me what sparks your interest in seeing this particular show. I will pick from the responders and send them to the show for free. Please make sure to enter your full real name and an email address in the comment form, as we might need to reach you. Also it never hurts to subscribe to the comments to be made aware if you had won or not.
Restrictions: You know…. Let’s make this a no restriction kind of contest with the exception of no guest or anonymous submissions being valid to win. Every once in a while I will do that for you. Now, now, please keep the applause and cheering to a minimum. You will give me an ego otherwise ?
The band has a number of releases out for your indulgence and I’ve embedded them for you below.
To get a visual sense of one of their tunes, here is the video for “Turn It Up” from 2012. Great track and gotta love the girl that the clip stars ?
