A big thank you to Austin Music Minute critic Laurie Gallardo for giving Mike and the Moonpies a great blurb on the day of the big CD Release Bash at Continental Club.

‘It’s true that I, your most humble Austin Music Minute maven, Laurie Gallardo, have bragged about Mike and The Moonpies before. I’ve enthusiastically shared a few tracks from their EPs, Lyin’ (2008) and one of my faves Catalina (2009), on previous segments. They specialize in some delectable roots music that puts a pang in the hearts of those of us who prefer their country old school. Moonpies frontman Mike Harmeier has a twang that’s right at home in any honky-tonk, but the guys are just as much at home at an indie venue as they are in any two-stepping dance hall.

The Moonpies have their first full-length album most aptly titled The Real Country, ten tracks chock full of that genuine country-western vibe. (One in particular quickly became my fave – “Fish In A Barrel,” featuring guest vocals by Jenn Miori.) They’re celebrating the release with a show tonight at The Continental Club, 1315 S. Congress Ave. And I’m happy to say that this show is another one of those sweet triple bills that I fall in love with rather quickly – grimy bluegrass masters with an Appalachia/punk rawk twist, The Flatcar Rattlers, and singer-songwriter/sweet balladeer with a drawl that never fails to carry me back for more, Leo Rondeau. Everything gets underway around 10 p.m.

This one comes recommended. Get you some beers and take care of business.

Hope to see you all tonight!
