Wednesdays kind of suck right? Its half way through the week, the day seems to last forever, and you just want the weekend to be here. Well we have good news: this week your Wednesday doesn’t have to suck!!! Start your day off right with a free show by The O’s this Wednesday morning at radio station 1310 The Ticket’s Musers Salute Summer! The awesomely talented local band comes on at 5:30 AM at Granada, just in time for breakfast tacos! The O’s describe their music style best themselves: “Well, we sweat too much for a folk band, drink to much for a pop band, and rock too much for a country band. Our music lies somewhere in between. Like the feeling of standing on a rooftop and singing an old Louvin Brothers tune at 4AM… Or shifting from buzz to beep.” (From their Myspace page) As you can see, your Wednesday is guaranteed to be great if you start it off with these guys and a couple of amazing breakfast tacos. Be sure to come party with The O’s this Wednesday morning!

Get to know The O’s a little better and take a look at their biography (From their Myspace page):
With almost 300 shows and 1 album album behind us, The O’s return with our sophomore release “Between The Two.” We’ve travelled to Europe, Hawaii, and everywhere in between during these last two years, winning the hearts of all we come across.
With our first album “We Are The O’s” (2009) receiving great accolades – winning “Best Of’s” all around Texas, climbing to #2 album on the UK Americana charts; from being heard all over MTV and the History Channel; to being dangerously handsome and charming. The O’s are off to an amazing start. Together, let’s take a look at all the amazing artists we’ve been able to share the stage with : Old 97’s, Dave Alvin, Ben Kweller, Justin Townes Earle, Mark Olsen and Gary Louris of The Jayhawks, Joe Ely, Billy Joe Shaver, Slobberbone, John Dee Graham, David Allen Coe, Split Lip Rayfield, Guy Forsyth, Lukas Nelson. Dang, those were some great shows. And it is only the beginning.
We’ve got a great new album! Produced by Grammy Award winning Stuart Sikes (Loretta Lynn, The White Stripes, Cat Power), “Between The Two” is an album that you won’t stop listening to. With 12 solid gold tracks, we dig deep in our roots (Everly Brothers, Elvis, Hank Williams, etc) to deliver songs of the highest quality that’ll hook folks immediately.
Live shows are an all-out party – Just two dudes playing a banjo, a guitar, a lowebro, kick drums, harmonicas, beautiful harmonies, and a tambourine. It’s always wheels-off.
“Yeah, but what kind of music do you two dudes play?”
Well, we sweat too much for a folk band, drink to much for a pop band, and rock too much for a country band. Our music lies somewhere in between. Like the feeling of standing on a rooftop and singing an old Louvin Brothers tune at 4AM… Or shifting from buzz to beep.
It’ll always be about the song. It’ll always be about the party. Our music hangs somewhere “Between The Two.”
