Shotgun Party @ KUT 4/28/11
Austin trio Shotgun Party plays a hybrid genre of music that blends early jazz with dance hall Texas country, which is almost exactly what you would expect from an Austin trio called Shotgun Party. The group got their start playing a weekly show at the Continental Club in 2006, and they found their crowd growing week after week. The unexpected blend of depression-era jazz and classic Texas country combined with the group’s raw talent drew people in, and soon enough Shotgun Party found themselves recording. Shotgun Party will play a CD release show for their new, third album on Thursday the 28th at Swan Dive. See what the party is going to be about with their performance in Studio 1a for host John Aielli.
