Oh yeah, it’s that time of year again. Nah Right, the good folks over at The Smoking Section and Knuckle Rumbler are pleased to announce that the Second Annual Grand Ole Party of Bootleggers and Tastemakers will be going down at the Rumbler Lounge @ Peckerheads[ll] in Austin, TX on March 18th.

I think I speak for everybody involved when I say that last year’s party was a huge success and a lot of fun for attendees and performers alike.  As you can see, for 2010 we’ve pulled together a pretty diverse lineup that includes some of the most promising emerging talent from across the country.

And of course, it’s all free of charge. Just make sure you RSVP here sooner rather than later. Hope to see you there!

Big thanks to our sponsors, Southern Comfort, Best Buy Musical Instruments, IRIS, Sweet Leaf Iced Tea and Taco Cabana.

Trackstar the DJ Presents: The GOP Mix

Monday, March 16th, 2009

The e-homie and TSS affiliate Trackstar the DJ was kind enough to throw together this mix in honor of Friday’s Grand Old Party of Bootleggers and Tastemakers. If you’ve been following any of these esteemed artists, there probably isn’t anything you haven’t heard before, and if you haven’t, this is as good a time as any to get familiar. It’s a nice little something to toss on the iPod for your plane/train/camel ride to Austin.
