The Tontons are gearing up to release a brand spanking new album with a subsequent tour to accompany the release. They’ll be gone for months, and Houston is going to miss them deeply. Fear not, however, because before they take off on their tour, they are going to give us an unforgettable performance with two of Texas’ finest.
From Austin, we have opener The Couch. They’ll be bringing their blend of good time rock and roll, and laying down the foundation for the evening.
Next up, Dallas dance-rock heavy weights, Ishi, who have been making ripples across the Texas scene for a few years now, will be laying down the law. If you’ve never caught an Ishi show, check out their music video for the song, “Disco Queen”. If you can get down with that, you’ll be in for a good time.
Of course, you won’t want to miss The Tontons, who’ll be performing tracks from the new album, along with old favorites, and maybe even some special surprises thrown in for good measure. It’s always a groovy time with The Tontons, so make sure you look sharp and bring your dancing shoes.
The Tontons are well on their way to finishing up that new album, which has been in the works for a little while now. They journeyed to a private location to reflect and be inspired, and during that time, they laid the groundwork for what might be their best record yet. All new songs, new ideas, and a fresh chance to reach a whole new audience have given The Ton Tons the creative fire they needed, and it’s no doubt that this record will be one for the books.
There currently is a limited number of advance tickets available at Cactus Records and Heights Vinyl, that are selling for only $10. No tax, no marked up fees, no service charges, just you and a $10 bill, and you’re there. Get them while you can.
The show is at Fitzgerald’s, on July 26th. The doors open at 8pm, and the show will start promptly at 9, so be there are be square. If you wait to buy your tickets, they’ll be $12, at the door, day of. This is an all ages show on a Friday night, so you can bet it’ll be packed. Get their early and get a great spot!
The Tontons will be embarking on a tour that covers the East Coast and parts of Canada during August, September, and October, starting on August 16th in Baton Rouge. They’ll be stopping at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City and the Pop Montreal Festival in Montreal.
