Hideout CD Release Show Report

By Scott. Filed under: GigBlog, TweedBlog.

We’d like to send a huge THANK YOU to all who braved a cold, snowy Sunday to join us at the Hideout last night.

The turnout and response to our first-ever complete performance of “Most Folk Heroes Started Out As Criminals” was positively humbling, and sent us home feeling great about the new record.

The Hideout has always been one of our favorite places to play, and last night reminded us why: The soundman knows his stuff, the p.a. and room sound great, and the audience clearly comes to listen!

And the bookers do a damn good job of pairing up bands, too. Shotgun Party from Austin was incredible, and we will surely be seeing them again someday. Please check them out if you weren’t able to catch their set last night. As Kip said from stage, they’re younger and better looking than us, but there was definitely a musical fit between the two bands, so if you like Tangleweed, definitely check out Shotgun Party sometime soon.

Now we have a few days to rest up and get ready for not one, but two, gigs this Friday night (first at Double Door, then at the Charleston), followed by several balcony pop up sets at CBGBFESTIVAL at the Congress Theatre on Saturday!

Thanks again to Michelle, Tim and Katie, Pierce (Sound!), and Nat (Bar!) at the Hideout, and everyone who came to the show last night. We had a fantastic time, and it wouldn’t have been the same without every last one of you.
