This here is a story of heartbreak, a story of fallen heroes. The Dutchess and the Duke made their way once again into Austin amongst strong praise for their recent release Sunset/Sunrise. Our expectations were high, and we promoted the show as best we could, hoping many would see the greatness that was D&D. Unfortunately, the night fell far short of our expectations, or mine at least. Follow the jump for full review and photos.

Hooray! We are now happy to anounce a killer show we will be helping out with at Mohawk in December. One of our favorite bands of last year (#1 to be exact) Dutchess & The Duke are returning to Austin on December 12th and we couldn’t be more excited. They will be joined on the stage by two other buzz bands: Oakland’s own Greg Ashley and Denton, TX boys Fergus & Geronimo. The last time D&D were in Austin they played as an acoustic duo, but word has it that they are now touring with a full band to bring the rock! Tickets will only run ya $8 so we really don’t know why you wouldn’t be there… Plus it’s a Saturday night! Check out some previews of this show with an album review of D&D’s debut album of 2008, one for their more recent LP Sunset/Sunrise, or an interview we ran the last time they made it to town. Stay tuned for more details and a possible contest for tickets to the show. In the meantime, check out one of our favorite songs from last year “Reservoir Park” and what will surely be in our top songs for this year “The River”.
