THE BC BUZZ

(up-to-the-minute and almost recent news)

 

Mid-December Reunion Shows
1985 brave comboThey’ll be the perfect end to 2014, Brave Combo’s 35th year. The “second wave combo,” the one that included Mitch Marine and Bubba Hernandez, the band that existed, roughly, from 1985 to 1992, will be tearing it up and gluing it down at three North Texas shows a week before Christmas. You can catch the action at Dan’s Silverleaf, in Denton, on Thursday, December 18, at Poor David’s, in Dallas, on Friday, December 19 and at Fred’s Texas Cafe, in Ft. Worth, on Saturday, December 20. These performances are guaranteed to be fun, funny and intense! I know I plan to have a good time and be intense.

One of Denton's Proudest Moments
The citizens of our little town, Denton, Texas, stood up to the man on November 4 and voted, by a landslide, to permanently ban hydraulic fracturing (fracking) within the city limits. A lot has been written, world-wide, about our “David vs. Goliath” moment, so I’ll just say it feels really good to be on the winning side, in Texas, for a change. Denton finally becomes the truly cool place it has been aching to be ever since Austin got weird!

 

 

LIVE AT BLOB'S PARK CD NOW AVAILABLE!!

live at blobs park coverAs promised, Brave Combo's new album, LIVE AT BLOB'S PARK is now available, just in time for the kick-off to polka season.  And, speaking of polkas, LIVE AT BLOB'S PARK is packed with 'em.  Eight, to be exact.  And, of course, there are waltzes, cumbias, twists, sambas, whatever you might expect to hear at a super trippy Brave Combo dance party.  Audience favorites include, “Purple Haze Polka,” “Poor People of Paris,” “Sugartime,” “The Blackbird Waltz,” “Hernando's Hideaway,” “Ice Machine in the Desert,” “Samba Ordinaire” and “In Heaven There is No Beer.”  There are 16 sizzling crowd-pleasers, in all.  This music is seriously fresh; only about five months old.  Blob's Park (between Baltimore and Washington D.C.) closed its doors at the end of March, 2014, just two weeks after these recordings were made.  The old German dance hall was cherished by bands and fans, alike.  So, head right on over to the BC store and download LIVE AT BLOB'S PARK or order it in the surprisingly-still-popular CD format (download, too.)  It's just $10, which comes out to about 60 cents a song.  Incredible, huh?
