No excuse not to catch ‘em live, folks…

By Blurt Staff

Earlier this year the Blurt gang was suitably blown away by Chapel Hill’s Happy Abandon, who played our annual day party at Austin’s Ginger Man pub during SXSW. The orchestrally-inclined indie rock band — Peter Vance, Jake Waits, Alex Thompson, and Justin Ellis— previously released a well-received 2015 EP Heavy Lines (listen to it HERE), and they’re also about to hit the road for an extensive East Coast tour that will also find them dipping into the Midwest and Canada. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to check ‘em out.
