Heartless Bastards at Bowery Ballroom in 2010 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
We just mentioned that Oax, who opened for Peter Bjorn & John in Austin, release an EP today (6/7) and open for The Rosebuds in Texas later this month. We since learned via a comment that Oax left, that The Heartless Bastards were also playing as his backing band (and that it was a "Rippin live show!"). A second look at the pictures confirms.
The Heartless Bastards, who headlined Bowery Ballroom recently, will come back to the forefront (and with their front-woman) at Mercury Lounge on July 23 & July 24, though these shows may not be as rippin as the Oax show because these will be special acoustic sets. Tickets went on sale last week and are still available for the 7/23 show (act quick though), and tickets go on sale Friday (6/10) at noon for 7/24.
