    FAT ANDY - Motel Bottle Rocket CD Release

    I have been shamelessly promoting my band and album via my avatar and sig-line for a while now. I figured, why not promote some more with a post.

    This Tuesday (09/23/08) my band's first album, Motel Bottle Rocket will be released. We have a whole week of activities planned for the big event.

    Monday (09/22/08) - Scented Vinyl at Mars Cafe. The band will be playing an acoustic set at Mars and will also be listening to some old fashioned albums. The show will be aired on The Capital 106.3.

    Tuesday (09/23/08) - Motel Bottle Rocket Listening Party at The Twisted Parrot. We will just be hanging out having some drinks and listening to the new album. Everyone is invited to check it out.

    Saturday (09/27/08) - CD Release Party at People's Court in Downtown Des Moines. Great venue for a show and we are looking forward to playing all the tunes along with some other stuff you may have heard before. Our buddy (and producer) Mike Butterworth will be opening for us, and Tony Bohenkamp (another producer) will be playing the keys with us all night. Should be GREAT time. Stop by if you can for the fun.

    Ok, the shameless plugs are over. Thanks.

    FYI - I can vouch for his band's ability to play. I will be the first to admit that I'm not typically a fan of local bands, but Fat Andy was certainly a nice surprise.

    (You owe me that $50 now Brian)


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Very cool. Big Willy P. is an old friend of mine. We were on the radio together before he ditched us and went on tour with the Nadas. My wife and I caught Fat Andy at Keyster's many moons ago. I'll bet back then you never thought this week would come.

    Re: FAT ANDY - Motel Bottle Rocket CD Release

    Is it possible for you to send a copy out in my direction? Too far away from Des Moines to consider going to any of the events, but I'm always interested in listening to good rock music.

    If you saw us a Keysters a long time ago, I surely wasn't thinking about getting album out, but rather how I was going to get my drunk *** home.

    I did not realize you "are" Fat Andy. I've seen you play twice and the band & music is excellent. I'll be there Saturday night with a group of people.

    Steve Jobs assures me we will be on iTunes Tuesday.

    Re: FAT ANDY - Motel Bottle Rocket CD Release

    Any CF posters out there willing to get together for this? Could be a blast. Peoples is an ISU environment.

    Fat Andy is very good. Kind of a Southern Rock/Country mix - but can really rock it out also. It would be fun to have a group there.

    Re: FAT ANDY - Motel Bottle Rocket CD Release

    Today is the big day. I have noticed that Steve Jobs lied and we don't appear to be iTunes as of this morning.

    You can go here: http://store.authenticrecordsonline....ts.asp?Cat=159

    To either buy a digital download or the actual CD however.

    What time are you guys playing at People's? I'll be down there for a grand opening party - but not sure when I'll get out of there.

    Tomorrow is the day.

    It sounds like Thomas Ian Nicholas (Rookie of the Year, American Pie) will be opening for us along with Mike Butterworth.

    Should be a good time.

    Re: FAT ANDY - Motel Bottle Rocket CD Release

    Ok, this is my last slameless plug. Tonight is the night.

    You can see a movie star and Fat Andy play all in the same night, at the same place for only 5 bucks.
