Hailing from the barren burgs of the East Bay Area in California, comes a wild and sonic caravan of colorful and talented impresarios… Tornado Rider, the renowned power trio of  “rock n’ roll barons” has joined forces with the ever-clever and contagiously catchy, Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits, to tear through ‘The States’ on an epic break-neck 25 date tour!

This incredible combo will be joined by their friends, THAT Damned Band in Austin, TX, Saturday, September 17th at The Highball for an event of animated and diverse musical entertainment… “GOBLIN PUNKS DELIGHT NIGHT”, presented by acclaimed local soiree organizer, “Who Said Vaudeville Was Dead?”.  Starting up the festivities will be the exciting new local act, Bold! Daring! True! – a band noted for their eclectic nature and unique musicality.

Tornado Rider (http://tornadoriderband.com) Drawing from the many branches of music, Tornado Rider’s sound is a mixture of all that is classic and carnal. One second you may hear a lilting and complex melody oozing from them, seemingly sent from the most delicate fairy or angel… the next moment a simple yet inspired sliver of driving heavy rock cataclysm sounds from this brigade, reminding you that dinosaurs once roamed the earth and that creatures just as mighty still remain. Known for their amazing marathon stage show, Tornado Rider has invented a new way to see, play and feel rock and roll music. Prolific, hard-working and unimaginably fun… a Tornado Rider show will usher you  into a ultimately creative world you will never want to leave.

Bobby Joe Ebola and The Children MacNuggits (http://bobbyjoeebola.com) was mightily formed in 1995 in a fast-food parking lot by guitarist Dan Abbott and singer Corbett Redford. The often funny and sometimes scary band built a dangerously loyal following of punks, misfits, elected representatives, perverts and intellectuals, before going on hiatus for the entire tenure of the Bush Administration. In 2009, the band rebuilt its war machine and is once again shocking contemporaries with toe-tapping uncomfortable truths. The MacNuggits have become legend in the musical underground of the Bay Area and beyond, with their infamously unpredictable mix of searing social satire, soaring harmonies, outlandish and shocking truths, and poop jokes.

THAT Damned Band (http://thatdamnedband.com)is an accordion driven group of multi-talented songsters, which pay musical tribute to eastern European, Yiddish, and old-tyme vaudevillian era music and styles. Some call it “Steam-Punk Goblin-Core“, THAT Damned Band features a unique arrangement that includes accordion, clarinet, jug, flute, saw, resonator guitar, washtub bass, tuba, drums, and washboard. An emotionally charged musical set is spiced up with occasional performances by REAL LIVING HUMAN ODDITIES and circus sideshow acts.

Bold! Daring! True! (http://www.reverbnation.com/bolddaringtrue) is an old-time trio with a diverse repertoire of folk, classic Hollywood/Tin Pan Alley, old Dixieland jazz, spirituals, and some more modern tunes with a throwback flavor. We specialize in original arrangements of old tunes, original compositions, and three-part harmonies.”
