THE BAND OF HEATHENS with special guest
Tuesday 8/2
THE BAND OF HEATHENS
8:30 DOORS / 9:00 SHOW
$8 ADVANCE / $10 AT THE DOOR

Hailing from Austin, TX, this 6 piece roots rock juggernaut has toured the world extensively, including performances at Bonnaroo, ACL Festival, Lollapalooza, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and Waukarusa.  Their nationally broadcast taping of the legendary Austin City Limits TV show aired with Elvis Costello, and their hard-touring ethos and legendary live shows have earned them a reputation as a live band not to be missed.

"The Band of Heathens, an Austin-based group, played the best set I came across during my five nights in town (at SXSW 2009)."THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

"If you still haven't caught up with this group yet then why not? They are magnificent live in concert, and One Foot in the Ether proves that they are just as excellent in the studio . . . I could carry on raving about every track on the album, but instead I will just highly recommend that you go out and buy this fantastic album. Also make sure you try and get to see these guys in concert as soon as you can." MAVERICK

". . . what makes these Heathens so refreshingly different is the overall musicianship and seamless blending of alt-rockers, folk tales, gutbucket blues and heartland anthems."CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

"The Band of Heathens, an Austin-based group, played the best set I came across during my five nights in town (at SXSW 2009)."THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

"One Foot in the Ether is sure to reinforce the band's place in the Austin music scene . . . ready-made for sitting on the back porch with a cold beer, a rock 'n' soul affair evocative of Little Feat, The Band and The Black Crowes."AUSTIN-AMERICAN STATESMAN

"Austin's Band of Heathens is a supergroup of sorts  frontmen Ed Jurdi, Gordy Quist and Colin Brooks all worked as solo artists before falling into a partnership three years ago. But this is no battle of egos: All three write together, and trade off lead vocals as if passing a bottle of wine around a campfire. One Foot in the Ether bears the musical influences of forbears like the Band and the Black Crowes while embodying timeless lyrical themes of salvation and sin. Bass player Seth Whitney and drummer John Chipman make for a sympathetic rhythm section, keeping the trio of equally matched talents upfront tied together seamlessly." COUNTRY WEEKLY

"It takes a fairly sizable amount of greatness to get over the great well-traveled divide of roots music and create something of eternal beauty now. But that's exactly what this group does on One Foot in the Ether, and it's the way they do it that marks them as shining survivors . . . a vocal blend straight out of a heavenly barroom, and a rhythm section that sounds like it was locked in the basement for five years until they learned out how to play together in the dark. SONIC BOOMERS

"The second release for the Band of Heathens continues their strong emergence onto the music scene by displaying a variety of mesmerizing attributes . . . This exceptional record provides further evidence that one does not need to pick a single genre to be successful. The Band of Heathens' variety is what makes them unique." COUNTRY STANDARD TIME

". . . there's no denying the appeal of the group's soulful rocking swagger and lock-tight arrangements."TEXAS MONTHLY

"[T]he Band of Heathens' sophomore effort asserts the local quintet as coherently evolved, the distinct songwriting styles of Gordy Quist, Colin Brooks, and Ed Jurdi melding into a singular sound . . . Looseness prevails, but the Band of Heathens pushes its sound forward together." AUSTIN CHRONICLE

"THE BEST RECORD OF 2009?" "One Foot in the Ether is a masterful follow-up . . . here is definitely no sophomore jinx here, as this native Texas band continues to shine. [T]hey successfully branch out more into a soulful funk here, along with a blend of alt-country and rock, allowing their harmonies and outstanding instrumentals to capture the listener . . . an exceptional job of catching the live energy which is missing in many studio recording . . . This one will certainly stand the test of time . . . and so will the Band of Heathens."AMERICANAROOTS.COM

"An album that echoes their down-home resolve, One Foot in the Ether finds them putting their best foot forward."BLURT

"Equally adept at rootsy country-rock as they are old-time R&B on One Foot in the Ether." UNCUT
