Scratch that: I did happen to catch Grayson Capps there early this summer. But it had probably been at least two years since I'd last walked in the door.
All that being said, it's a really great venue to see bands in an intimate setting. And from my experience, shows nearly always draw good crowds.
I got a really nice email from a guy named Scott Steinbruner asking me to help promote the Otter King's upcoming show at Hideaway Saloon. And certainly as the President of the Alex Wright Fan Club of North America, how can I turn him down. Scott writes:
I’m a long time reader of your blog, and I recall that you are a big Alex Wright fan. I just wanted to let you know that Alex is playing with my band (Otter Kings) and Hello Mayday from Cincinnati this Friday night at the Hideway Saloon, starting at 10pm. Having never played with Alex before, we are really looking forward to it.
More information about the show is on our Facebook event page: http://tinyw.in/6b7j and our band’s Facebook page is here: http://tinyw.in/1EDj
I know you don’t know us from a hole in the wall, but we are really working hard to promote the show and get as many people there as we can, so anything you could do as far as mentioning the show to your readership would be most appreciated.
Thanks, and keep up the great work with the blog!
Done and done, Scott. Thanks for emailing!
