Lucky 2013, Time for Halloween!

38For such an ominous number, 2013 has been a year of good fortune. KreweDCM is thrilled to announce the 7th Annual parade theme: LUCKY 2013.

In partnership with the HONK!TX Festival, the Krewe is planning a raucous celebration of the fates, both ill and good. Just like last year’s parade, the secondline will be lead by a mega-band version of yours-truly, the Dead Music Capital Band, augmented by fiends and friends from the local brass band community, and will make pace through the streets of East Austin to neighborhood bars along East 6th Street.

LUCKY 2013 Timeline:

7:30pm – Meetup for drinks & revelry at the Whitehorse
8:30pm – Parade rolls when DMCB plays us out into the streets
11:30pm – Parade is over — but stay for the pub crawl and some more (f)undead music!

Busy Saturday

diaDeLosMuertosWe’ve got three events for you to come to this Saturday!  Austin’s favorite undead band will be rising from the grave to start the day at the grand opening party for the new Wheatsville Coop location on South Lamar!  We’ll be playing our spooky tunes starting at 2:15, so head on down and join the party.

Our second stop on the whirlwind tour is going to take place at the Dia De Los Muertos Festival taking place at Festival Gardens in east Austin. The Dead Music Capital Band takes over the “Kid’s Zone” at 3:30, so bring the kiddos for a dancing good time!

Our day will come to an end at the Art Outside festival on Saturday night.  The festival takes place at Apache Pass, so here’s a chance to see the (f)undead outside of their home town of Austin.

Dead Music Capital Band Puts a Bounce in Your Bones

Dead Music Capital Band Puts a Bounce in Your Bones

Austin’s Dead Music Capital Band may appear dead and disfigured, but their music makes you want to dig yourself out of the ground and move it around a little.

Much thanks to Shane Shelton who caught up with DMCB to find out more about the band, the music, and how “honk” festivals bring a breath of life to their scene.
