  • Does anyone know if Vice is doing a party at Victory Grill this year?

    They’ve done something there for the past several (at least 5) years but I haven’t heard anything yet. Any help would be awesome!

  • Hey. LOVE the site. My band (Monument To No One) Is playing Thursday 7-11pm @ Cheers on 6th. Check out the website for new mastered tunes. Thank you kind sir, Robert, for this most impeccable blog!

  • Chris

    http://www.vicesavestexas.com says info coming soon, i wonder if they doing them scion shows at stubbs again too. aside from the spin party, no day parties have been announced at stubbs as of yet. anyone heard of any flyins or suprise guests? who is playin the playboy party?

  • Chris

    actually scratch that, its up now and lists just a saturday night after party, which in past years either got shut down early or was impossible to get into. wavves, annhilation times, and titus andronicus are on the bill at paradox from midnight until 6 am. good luck getting in after 2 am. i hope more parties from vice coming soon cuz their dayparty at the longbranch was one of the best.

  • hmm cool

  • i was at the sat party last year until at least 4 am and it was great. hopefully it will be the same situation this year. i’d still be disappointed if they didn’t do anything at longbranch and victory though…

    What is the deal with shows at Bar Bar at Convention Center. For those that went last year, were they open (with cover charge) to those without wristband? Basically, is it worth trying to go to a show there? Tks.

  • wes flexner

    you should buy a lot of weed in mexico and then carry is accross the border and sell drugs in your hometown.

  • Jason

    Shearwater mentions on myspace that they are playing the Mojo Magazine Party at Mean Eyed Cat on Saturday afternoon. That is the only reference I can find anywhere to this party or their show there. Can anyone shed a light on this??? I really want to see Shearwater, but don’t know if I can make it to their evening show.

    Where is Mean Eyed Cat and who else is playing? Is there RSVP?
