Spankers Coming to Tips



This is a tough predicament. You have a great new CD out, as reviewed here a couple of weeks ago, but your core audience can't attend. Not only that, but those that will be going to your show are at least three to four, perhaps even 10, times as old as who the record was aimed at. Picture Spoon playing at a nursing home.

All right, it's not that bad and it should be a great show. Austin's accoustic mad men, and one charming and equally disturbed woman, the Asylum Street Spankers will be performing this Wednesday night at Tipitina's starting at 9 p.m. They are touring in support of their new children's album, "Mommy Says No!" but this band has been brewing up an eclectic mix of blues, jump jazz, ragtime, vaudeville, hick hop, acoustic mash-up, new and old cover songs and amazing originals for more than 13 years, that even if you graduated from kindergarten more than twenty years ago, you'll still be entertained. And tickets are only 12 bucks, so no need to rob the piggy bank for this one.
