Jack Sanders on Fresh Talk (Fresh Art International)

Good friend Jack Sanders is interviewed by Cathy Byrd on Fresh Talk’s podcast. They chose to use a snippet of a new Hotel Brotherhood song called ‘Trains through the grass’ at the end of the interview,… but listen to Jack’s story, that’s the main thing.

In the interview Jack explains how he got to starting his “company” Design Build Adventure through his own experiences working with Samuel Mockbee and Liz Lambert and a hundred other amazing people.  It’s a good listen.

here’s the link.

Thanks to Jack and Cathy as well.

Kelli Scarr and her band are coming to town, on tour from NYC and we’re going to do a show with them at Texas’ favorite trailer hotel, El Cosmico, right here in Marfa.  Come cool out around the new outdoor stage El Cos has got set up outside under the rope lights, if you haven’t already… but then do again if you have.  It’s a perfect desert oasis night time activity.

Go here to NPR’s All Songs Considered to listen to a few tracks from her latest release ‘Dangling Teeth’.

Will be a great show right in the middle of the Viva Big Bend Festivities, our show will be free with suggested donations for the traveling band.

Show starts at El C at 8:30 pm.

Hotel Brotherhood-San Antonio way, Hotel Havana May 2nd, it’s a Wednesday.

Hotel Brotherhood will be returning to the Hotel Havana in San Antone, on the 2nd of May in the year of the Water Dragon, 2012. The Havana is a wonderful old hotel in downtown San Antonio, and if you haven’t been there you should go… even if it’s not on the night of May 2nd…but maybe.

The last time we played there (with Judson Claiborne)….Baylor beat Washington across town in the Valero Alamo Bowl. It just happened to be the highest scoring bowl game in college football history, with Baylor winning in the end 67 to 56.  Great.
