Yep Roc Records, the ones releasing Jesus of Cool on Tuesday, February 19th, are throwing a record-release party in Austin, Portland, Seattle, Cambridge, Nashville, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Philly. Ours will be the most kick-ass of them all, of course, 'cause Austin's got more bands, amazing talent, a charity angle, and an actual Nick Lowe tribute band. Plus, we are darned good-looking. More info on Yep Roc and the reissue at: www.yeproc.com

I’m a media person—what can you do for me?

Do you need your car washed? Seriously though, we’re happy to provide folks from the various bands for interviews, on-air chats, live music, etc. They don't call Nick Lowe a cult hero for nothing—these musicians LOVE to talk about Nick's music and what it's meant to them. And once your audience hears it, they'll love it too, guaranteed.

What's this about a charity angle?

That's right, every $5 donation at the door will support Anthropos Arts, which brings Austin's hottest jazz and Latin musicians into Title I public schools to offer free workshops, individualized lessons, and other music-education programs. Learn more about Anthropos Arts at: www.anthropos.org.
