Brobdingnagian Bards Tales

The latest music news, stories, and events of The Original Celtic Renaissance music group, the Brobdingnagian Bards. CELTIC GEEK at its Best! Find out more from the Nagians page.

And now for something completely different. Over the past 2 1/2 years we've been performing, we've played a lot of gigs in around Texas and slowly, the nation. We've also played a lot at the UT South Mall. But ye know, despite all that, we've not played Austin very often. That may change. Last night, Andrew and I booked a weekly gig at Hostelling International Austin.

Hostelling International is a non-profit membership organization founded in 1934 to promote international understanding by educational and travel through an operating network of nearly 4,500 hostels in 70 countries. Keeping with the "Live Music Capitol of the World" theme, this hostel also offers live music six nights a week. The Brobdingnagian Bards will perform on Thursdays, starting November 29th for at least a month. The venue is very cool with great acoustics and a comfortable non-smoking environment.

There are vending machine soft drinks and snacks available, or your free to bring your own food and drinks. We were even talking about having interested people chip in some money to order pizza right before our 1st and 2nd sets. But that'll be up to whoever shows up. Shows will start around 7:30pm. Arrive early if you'd like to join the pizza pool. It's a couple weeks away, and I'll keep ye more informed in a couple weeks.

Meantime, we're heading to the Texas Renaissance Festival this weekend. Drop by here in a couple days, and we should have more information about where you can find us. Until then, slainte'!
