Show Preview: Shapes Have Fangs @ Ghost Room (2/10)

Date 2/10/11
Location Ghost Room
Doors 9pm
Tickets $5 @ Door

With a bit of a slow week in the music scene in Austin, it’s a perfect time to get your butt out there and check out some of that local music you’ve been meaning to see.  Thursday night is a great option for such endeavors with a headlining show at The Ghost Room by Shapes Have Fangs.  Joining the band on stage are fellow up and coming and hot locals Rayon Beach, The Daze, and Eets Feats.  Also in store is a photo booth by Birds Barbershop and a free drink for the first 100 people through the door provided courtesy of Waterloo Ice House.  Fellow sponsors and friends for the event are Republic of Austin, Knuckle Rumbler, and Red River Noise.  I highly doubt you’ve got anything better to do on a Thursday night.  Seriously.
