Dead Music Capital Band – “Ax Grinder” | NPR Tiny Desk Concert Contest Entry

Dead Music filmed our own Crammy Tiny Desk Concert earlier this month.  Cubicles, fluorescent lighting, a bitchin’ KUT coffee mug–what more could a (f)undead brass band need?

The “Swingin’ Sound From 6 Feet Down” crammed almost all of our members into the Wheatsville Co-op offices 1/11/15 , performing “Ax Grinder” and more live.  Many thanks to the mortals of Wheatsville and Austin Hansen of Exit Flag Photography.  We promised Mr. Hansen we would eat him last if he could capture us at our workplace best–he certainly made us picture perfect!

This is Halloween

krakenOnce again, Halloween is upon us, and this year we are taking things under water.  This year’s theme is The Drowned World, so don your nautical gear and join in on the fun!

Produced in partnership with Honk! TX, this year’s parade is an exploration of a watery existence, warped by the crushing depths of the Dead Green Sea.  The DMCB Halloween Mega-Band will lead the procession through East Austin. After the parade, the Krewe will return to the Gypsy Lounge for a post-parade show to benefit HONK! TX featuring brass-kicking sets from Dead Music Capital Band, Yes Ma’am Brass Band, Minor Mishap Marching Band, and more.

8:00pm – Meet the Krewe for pre-parade libations and revelry at GypsyLounge

9:00pm – Parade thru East Austin with KreweDCM and the Halloween Mega-Band incarnation of Dead Music.

…and then – Parade returns to Gypsy Lounge for post-procession celebration, drinks and dancing at the Honk! TX Halloween Funraiser.
