BlackDots are traveling down to Florida to play FEST 16 in Gainesville this month. But before FEST some great friends of ours set up this Tampa prefest show on Wednesday Oct. 25th with Have Gun Will, Travel and Radarmen at the Vélo Champ. We predict some pretty amazing times at this show and it would be great to have each and everyone of you involved. So clear your schedule now and we will see you soon in TAMPA!
Vélo Champ & Barn Burners Club Present:
The first show of the new ‘Bike Shop Music Series’ in the backyard at Vélo Champ. Backyard rock and roll, cold beers in wheel barrows and bike shop vibes are the making of a barn-burner of a night! BCA BBQ will be onsite slinging street food and mean mugs!
\\\ HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL have a natural instinct for combining folk, pop, rock and classic country influences to create a sound all their own. “Their music has a great energy to it with infectious, sing-along choruses and refrains” remarked NPR’s Robin Hilton. American Songwriter called HGWT’s music “organic, infectious Americana Pop. Their music has a refreshing immediacy to it.”
\\\ BlackDots sounds like a wise democracy that’s figured out its infrastructure before putting up flashing signage. Three principle songwriters. Two principle singers—vacillating between Florida ex-pat Wade and John—topically ranging from teenage depression-cutting to “the journey vs. the top of the mountain” headspace of an isolated band playing in Denver. In the background, on the blacktop in the distance, I hear Rumbleseat, Tim Version, long drives to find sympathetic souls, and small, semi-hidden tattoos being way more meaningful than sleeves of brightly-colored ink. –Todd Taylor, Razorcake
\\\ Radarmen – Former and existing members of Signals from Satellites, Electric Geese, Coma Girl, and Brahm Bones came together and devised a plan for musical.. mind-controlling ..mind-bending radar waves.
