Austin’s very own GRAND CHAMPEEN was also among the openers for the NEW BOMB TURKS last weekend at Red 7. The ‘PEEN has been GRAND jammin’ and giggin’ around for several years now. And they play that kind of classic old school rock n’ roll that might remind one of bands like THE REPLACEMENTS or even THE ROLLING STONES (they definitely have plenty of their own grittier proto-punkier moments, just as well).
While I’m not entirely sure what the band’s recent/current plans are in terms of recording or touring, it was pretty damn sweet to catch ‘em on this “one-off” show of sorts, with the almighty TURKS. Just a great band of guys, playing some great rock and roll music. Here’s a few snaps from the show on November 12 and some extra bitties.
Here’s a totally rad vid of the band performing “Records & Tapes” earlier this year from KLRU and the ACL Satellite Sets. You can get more GRAND professional videos and photos from this performance HERE.
More GRAND CHAMPEEN:
Not sure if there is an active Facebook page for the band. There is one HERE that looks to be rather dormant. And another Fan page HERE that doesn’t appear to be too active, either. Feel free to check ‘em out though if you might like.
