Stoked is one word that explains how I felt when Dave Hause gave me the thumbs up Thursday that he would play the Gurley House in Akron with his current tour mate Cory Branan.
A few weeks back, I noticed the the guys had a one day break from touring. Since they for whatever reason had no Cleveland stop, I asked them to play a house show. They were all about it. So, with short notice, I reached out to the Gurley House in Akron and asked if they were down for a show. Once I got their OK, they helped me recruit two amazing local bands, Signals Midwest and Harvey Pekar, to jump on the bill. It is going to be an awesome night.
Dave Hause is most commonly known for being in the amazing punk rock band The Loved Ones. Hause also has been doing the solo thing for a few years now (more on that in an upcoming interview I did with him). He dropped an amazing full-length album earlier this year titled Resolutions that everyone needs to hear.
Cory Branan is a singer / songwriter from Mississippi who has just an amazing voice and sound. Branan has worked with Lucero in the past on their albums and vice-versa. His name is actually dropped on the Lucero song “Tears Don’t Matter Much”. If you have not heard of him yet, you are missing out.
With such short notice though, I need everyone to please spread the word. I would love to have a nice turnout for these guys. If you plan on going, bring some cash for donations.
Special thanks to Jeremy of the Gurley House for hosting the show on such short notice and also to Corey for making the above flier. Also big thanks to Signals Midwest and Harvy Pekar for agreeing to play.
This is going to be a really fun show so you should all come on out. What else do you have going on a Thursday night in December?
