DOWNLOAD: Grandfather Child - Waiting For You / Dog Water (ZIP)

Technicolor Hearts at The Parish in Austin (more by Tim Griffin)

We're happy to report that there have been a couple additions to our previously-announced Texas Takeover Party which happens on Thursday (10/18) at Rebel NYC (251 W. 30th St.) as part of next week's CMJ Festival.

Headlining the night (1 AM) will be Houston's Grandfather Child. The band, who are signed to New West Records, count Robert Ellis as a member. He, who has appeared on BV many times, just happens to be playing a solo set right before them too. You can download both sides of Grandfather Child's "Waiting For You" single at the top of this post.

Grandfather Child are also playing a day party at Lulu's in Greenpoint on Friday (10/19) afternoon, and, later that night, the New West showcase at The Living Room (11:30 PM) with Sydney Wayser, Kalen Nash, White Violet, Ponderosa, and Wolf Ram Heart. All Grandfather Child dates, including a December run that brings them back to NYC, are listed below.

Additionally, Austin's Technicolor Hearts will now open the party at 6 PM (get ready for a long night!). The band will also play Pete's Candy Store later that same night (10 PM). You can stream their most recent EP below, and check out lots of live pictures of them on BV Austin.

I wouldn't even need to listen. The two transgenders in that photo are enough to tell.

Every act on this bill was boring as they get. This representation of Texas is awful. Glad to not be from Texas.
