New Music

I haven't been very inspired to bake lately. Probably because I haven't had enough free time. So instead of sharing a tasty dessert with you, I'm going to share some new bands that I recently discovered. I hope you like them as much as I do.

1: Here Come The Mummies

I discovered this band last year at Mardi Gras in New Orleans. They played at a costume party that had the opportunity to attend. Amazing. Great, high energy music coupled with a wonderfully entertaining show. Not to mention the countless number of double entendre's. If you have an opportunity to go see these guys, do it. Tickets are usually only $25-$35. Recommended Song: Freak Flag or Boom Boom Room... or Jailbait... or Pants (ugh I love them all). Recommended Album: Carnal Carnival.

2: Cowboy Mouth

Last night some friends of ours invited us to see this band at the House of Blues in Houston, TX. A rock and roll band from New Orleans, Cowboy Mouth has been around for over 15 years, with the same drummer and guitarist (from what I can tell, the other guitarist and bass player have changed over time). What makes this band unique is that the lead singer is the drummer. He sits front and center stage and comes out always wearing a cutoff shirt, shorts and barefooted. Like the above band, these guys are high energy and put on a great show. They just make you feel good, and tickets are usually only $25 - $30. Recommended Song: I believe. Recommended album: Fearless or Are You With Me?

3. Miggs

These guys have a lot of albums out, but from what I can tell they are still only an opening act. They opened last night for Cowboy Mouth. I put them in the same genre as Goo Goo Dolls, maybe that's just me though. I enjoyed them enough that I bought one album, though I may get more in the future. I can see these guys playing festivals like ACL and South by Southwest in Austin, TX. Recommended Song: Fairy Tales & Miracles. Recommended album: 15th and Hope.
