March 24, 2014 - Still seeking a drummer

Guys, we're still alive, but things are slow while Texxx recovers from his back surgery. We're looking to start talking to drummers, but it'll be mid-late April before we're practicing again. If you know someone, LET US KNOW!

August 13, 2013 - Gig with Loco Gringos/Dallas Uber Alles at Wits End 9/14

As we welcome our new drummer Ethan into the fold, we're getting our names out there again actively looking for gigs. Our first gig with Ethan went phenomenally at the Kessler in July.

We hope to unleash several new songs at this gig at Wits End. Other bands on the line up are:

  1. Dallas Uber Alles (12am)
  2. Loco Gringos (11pm)
  3. The PHuss (10pm)
  4. Restvrant (9pm)
  5. SWEATLOAF (8pm)
Note that we go first, get there early!

April 30, 2012 - Cinco de Mayo with Loco Gringos/Hickoids & SWEATLOAF!

IS THIS THING ON? Oh sweet, it still works. Who knew?

BIG PARTY ON CINCO DE MAYO! It's this weekend at the Kessler Theater in Oak Cliff. Saturday, we go on at 6pm. Get there early! Barry Kooda is playing (Nervebreakers) as well as Bastardos de Sancho and Club Wood. Huge bill, tons of fun. Free diapers to manage the corndog shits.

Check out the Kessler Facebook event page for more details.

November 11, 2011 - Good to go

Wednseday's rehearsal was great! I think that means tomorrow's gig is going to suck.

And by the way, if you see your mom this weekend would you be sure and tell her the link to the event on Facebook

We're excited to get this going again!

April 24, 2010 - Ya'll missed a great show!

March 4, 2010 - Some great news to be announced soon.

My birthday was yesterday and it was a really good one. We've also got a couple of auditions for some bass players this coming week. Hopefully we can actually get to do it as there was always SOMETHING in the way of us just getting to the audition stage last few weeks.

It only gets better too. We have a pretty big announcement coming. Keep your July 3rd open for what looks to be a fun Saturday! Hope you'll be in town.

February 14, 2010 - Bassist needed

We need a new Pinkustronix Operator™! The ad says it best:

We've got a gig in April in Deep Ellum and we do not want to cancel. We'll also be working on booking more gigs once we've got the right replacement.

We're looking for someone dedicated to the project. Your attitude is as important as your skill.

December 21, 2009 - Video from Lounge on Elm Street

December 19, 2009 video is now on our A/V page. Click the link above to see us playing "Too Parter"  at the Lounge on Elm Street in Deep Ellum.

Last night

We had a lot of fun and it sounded amazing. There was a real nice recording rig there that night courtesy one of Kyle's friends. We'll wait to see when that comes out.

Unfortunately, the video camera I have just doesn't like resonant frequencies of floors because it vibrates the camera right into shock protection mode & shuts it down! I'm working on a way to decouple the tripod from the floor & hopefully eliminate those issues. Also, we'll potentially be incorporating our managers studio level cam, but we'll see. It will make for some better quality vids!

Man, ya'll are missing out.

December 12, 2009 - One week from today!

A Brown Christmas With SWEATLOAF (let it flow, let it flow, let it flow!) is next SaTURDay . . . One week! It should be interesting for sure.

We also have just recently rolled the 666th new friend and have decided to give them free tickets for life!! We'll announce the winner(s) soon!

See ya'll soon.

December 1, 2009 - POSTERS!

Posters arrived from the printer for our December gig. Look for them around town in the coming weeks.

Should've made it an ugly christmas SWEATERLOAF show. ;)

November 26, 2009 - Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to take a moment to reflect about everything and everyone that gives us the ability to celebrate how and what we choose.

And for that, I am eternally grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving . . . Ya'll!!

August 6, 2009 - Austin show in jeopardy!

Fellow Buttheads, we're looking for a way to get down to Austin to play in September 5th, but we're in a pickle as for transportation for the gear AND people. We've got the ability to get the people down there, but no way to transport the gear. Plus, without a significant guarantee from the venue (which is highly unlikely), we can not afford to get down there and back without it costing us more than we'll make.

We're looking for help in a vehicle that can tow a trailer for 2 days (SAT/SUN) or even different ideas on how to get this done! We're looking for any feedback anyone might have on helping us get this done. Please get in contact with us!

August 1, 2009 - Potential show September 5th in Austin

We're trying to hammer out details for a show in Austin. If we get it booked and you live in Austin, you had BETTER be there! Also, we might need some help with promoting the show. All volunteers will be ''compensated" in some form.

Keep your eyes peeled for more info here!

June 20, 2009 - FREE SHOW!

We've arranged a free show, all ages at Bill's Records in Dallas.

Also, we're finalizing details for an Austin show in September. Keep your eyes peeled.

June 18, 2009 - Drummer Found!

We've practiced with a guy named Kyle a couple of times and the dude is good! Hopefully we can get all things ironed out to gig very soon. He's excited about practicing AND gigging!

May 28, 2009 - Drummer Needed

The 28th will be the last day for our drummer Nathan while he goes out of town for six weeks. We hope to hear from him upon his return as he's been a great asset to the band.
That also means we'll need to have a replacement so we can continue to gig. If you feel like you fit the bill, let us know!
(UPDATE 06/16/09: I think we've found our man!)
