Probably a solo style Hotel Brotherhood show….but you never know…..see… looks like drummer extraordinaire Dave Treut might join the Hotel for some back up on the traps. 

Also, Joe will probably play some second guitar and a couple new songs from his upcoming album under the Candles moniker. 

Haven’t played Pete’s in quite a while….hope to see some friendly faces out to help start sending off 2010 with a humble bellow.


Dec. 16th- Viaduct Theater with Hotel Brotherhood, Jim Becker, and The Cairo Gang.

Hotel Brotherhood: Pairs of Things and Other Stories

Label: King Condor-Blackmott
Release Date: 2010
Genre: Recording


Chicago-based songwriter Ross Cashiola has managed to put together Marfa’s closest approximation of an “it” band. Under the Hotel Brotherhood banner, the sculptor and part-time Marfa resident (sparked by a Chinati Foundation internship) seems to open for everyone worth seeing who comes through Marfa; in fact Austin’s own Heartless Bastards recently backed him during the El Cosmico music festival. Musically, Cashiola’s a great ambassador for the artsy desert outpost, producing country music bare as floorboards, matched by bracing, literary lyrics. Hotel Brotherhood’s second album pairs Cashiola’s lyrical contributions and earnest vocals with gorgeous instrumentation, especially Sam Wagster’s polished guitar, pedal steel, and piano work on “Two Rights a Wrong,” “Wild Clouds,” and “Wild Rose Pass,” respectively. Singers Jessica Moore and Jenny Walton-Wetzel help soften the austerity, though some songs, like the excellent character-driven “Rudi Corales,” need no adornment. Much like Marfa, Pairs of Things isn’t a fast-paced, thrill-a-minute ride, but instead captivates with its spare, slow simplicity.

What a great show tonight. In the mild and welcome snow fall. Such a treat to hear Erin and his band, and also get to hear Cains and Abels for the first time. Such a great show despite the random technical difficulties. Thanks for those who showed up and for the bands who shared the stage.
