I love Giovannie and the Hired Guns. When I first heard "Ramon Ayala" I was thrilled- here was a fresh, original band that was accessible, interesting and fun. Giovannie and the Hired Guns sound like the best of Texas rock to me- real, no pretense and with just of touch of the Southern. In fact, Giovannie and the Hired Guns have found huge cross-over success with Rock and Country, making them a perfect choice to play Lubbock's Cook Garage (11002 US-87) on Saturday, January 14th. And that's great for us, because Giovannie and the Hired Guns are known for their live stage show:

[...]the Stephenville, Texas-based band has amassed millions of streams almost entirely through word-of-mouth, thanks in no small part to their unforgettable live show—an electrifying spectacle that invariably leaves audiences sweat-drenched and ecstatic.

A quick word about Cook's Garage- I saw Bone Thugs, Cypress Hill and Ice Cube perform there. It was a HUGE show. And I could not help but be totally impressed with how the show was managed by the staff and security at Cooks. Folks were able to get in quickly and easily and there were no incidents during the show. It was orderly and the beer lines were quick. What else can you ask for?

Tickets for Giovannie and the Hired Guns are available through eventbrite.com and range between $20 and $28 dollars with a $10 cash-only upcharge for minors at the door. Clear bag policy enforced. This event is standing only, so don't bring a chair. The band will perform inside the "bus barn"  which will make sense to you if you've been out there before, but regardless will be evident when you get there.

Giovannie and the Hired Guns are touring in support of their new album Tejano Punk Boyz, which is available for pre-order here.
