Lonestar Bash at the Brewery Contest: Round 2

A big thanks to all of you out there who helped us make it past the first round of voting in the Lonestar Bash at the Brewery contest. We are one of three Austin bands who have made it to the semifinals!

We’d like to invite each of you to the semifinals competition at Mohawk this Monday, August 9th. Come on out and cheer us on as three judges make the call on who will pass through to the final round of voting for the band that will go on to play the Bash. Mohawk is located at 912 Red River St in Austin, Texas. We’re hoping for a home-field advantage, seeing as how they have a drink named after us called ‘The Moonpie’ (a Lonestar Beer and a shot of whiskey) that’s even painted onto their drink menu wall.

Come show your support and we’ll give it right back. Thanks y’all, see you there!

A big thank you to local reviewer Alex Daniel for the kind words in a write up about the band’s new release ‘The Real Country’:

‘The brand of country on “The Real Country,” the debut album from Mike and the Moonpies, is extremely adaptable. Some of the music, like the steady blues bounce of “Water on the Rocks” or the relaxed Southern sway of “Matrimony,” call for cordial two-stepping in an upscale dance hall. But if you were to hear the twangy romp of the title track’s steel guitar riffs at, say, the band’s Aug. 12 gig at the Mohawk, you couldn’t help spilling your Lone Star before you scuttled across the dance floor.
It’s fitting, then, that the Moonpies feel at home all over town. They’re in their element among the rough-edged rock elites on Red River, but they also held the release party for “The Real Country” at the historic Continental Club, and they’re veterans of the tiny Drag dive the Hole in the Wall. Ultimately, “The Real Country” is exactly what it claims to be — Texas country for Texans, played straight from the heart of Texas.’

Hope to see you all at the Mohawk on August 12!
