BAND OF HORSES BENEFIT CONCERT SOLD OUT

 

SILVER
SPRING, MD – Blurt Online – the new music website and digizine brought to you
by the creative team behind the lauded HARP Magazine – announced today that THE
BLURT LAUNCH PARTY, featuring Band of Horses at The Parish Room in Austin, Texas
on Saturday, September 27, sold out in under two hours after tickets went on
sale today at 10 a.m. Central.


“We
thought we put together a pretty good lineup for the BLURT LAUNCH PARTY, but
this far and away exceeded even our own high expectations,” says BLURT
Editor-in-Chief and Founder Scott Crawford. “I think everyone who was lucky
enough to get a ticket will be in for a real special night.”


Doors
will open at 10:30 p.m. following the conclusion of the day’s music at the 2008
Austin City Limits Music Festival. Famed BLURT blogger James McMurtry and the
Heartless Bastards are slated to open with music beginning at 11 p.m. A portion
of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the Health Alliance for Austin
Musicians, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide access to
affordable healthcare for Austin’s low-income, uninsured working musicians. For
more information, please visit:

“For
those of you who weren’t able to get a ticket today, there may be a small
quantity of tickets made available the day of the show, so look for updates on
BLURT-ONLINE.COM next week and check in at the Parish Room box office a few
hours before the doors open,” says BLURT Associate Editor Andy Tennille. “We’re
also going to be giving away some tickets at BLURT-ONLINE.COM and through some
of the local radio stations in Austin, so keep your eyes peeled and your wits
about you.”
