DAYTROTTER FANS

To some of you Daytrotter is old news. You’ve been finding cool new recordings of your favorite bands, and finding new favorite bands from them for years! In fact, we’ve actually been there a couple of times, and a few of us recorded a session for Brandon’s side project The Wealthy West. Well back when we were getting ready for our new video release they came out with a couple really sweet new changes that we’re super pumped about and we hope you’ll go give them a look! Click picture below to hear our session from 2010.

One thing we’re excited about is their new “Direct to Artist” portion of their subscription. Basically, if you sign up and become a member, you can now elect to donate $5.00 of your yearly fee to any band of your choice. Check out this article all about it on Evolver.com

 

We’ve recorded a new session a couple months ago, and can’t wait for you to hear it! But until then, check out these Wealthy West songs.

NEW MUSIC VIDEO

RB Total Rocketboys Poster 5

We’re excited to announce that on June 5th we’re releasing a Total Recall-inspired music video for our song “Marching to the Palace!” We’re also hosting a premiere of the video in Austin at the North Door on June 5th where, in addition to showing the new video, we’ll be watching the original Total Recall and giving away awesome free stuff! We promise it’ll be a night you’ll never forget (insert awkward Total Recall joke here)! Doors open at 7pm. Oh, and did we mention it’s free? You really have no excuse now…

And in case you aren’t familiar, here’s the 1990 trailer:
