Warriors??? COME OUT AND PLAY!!

It’s that time again, Yes, it’s fight club and this week we have a match up for the ages. We Texas Country Rock giants Eleven Hundred Springs vs. the 1979, 7 out of 10 IMDb rated, The Warriors. Get your, baseball bats, chains, knives, fisticuffs,  shanks, hockey sticks, and Joe Walsh records ready because we got ourselves a party coming. It’s going to be a bloodbath.

In corner number 1 we have, The Warriors. The Warriors who hail from Coney Island, New York are one of the baddest gangs in the city. There a Moltov cocktail throwing gang of hooligans who probably shouldn’t be messed with. However, they had to fight all of the gangs in New York because they were framed in the killing of the Gramercy Riffs leader by a rival gang. Wow, drama-rama. The Warriors fight through Riffs, Furies, and more to prove there innocent all while spouting off genius one liners like, ” I’ll shove that bat up your ass and turn you into a popsicle.”… Awesome.

In corner 2, we have your beloved Texas favorites Eleven Hundred Springs. You don’t want to mess with Eleven Hundred Springs. There Texas country and if you know anything about country music, you know that Texas country is the best. Eleven Hundred Springs are known as one of the last out law country bands in Texas, with artists such as Willie Nelson, Cory Morrow, Pat Green, and Roger Creager standing with them.

The band’s 1999 release, Live at Adair’s Saloon, is one of the definitive albums of the late 90s Texas music scene. This album, along with popular Monday night performances at the famed Adair’s Saloon in the Deep Ellum district of Dallas, helped make the band a favorite among the college students across Texas. Song titles, like “I Came Home Loaded Again” where songwriter Matt Hillyer threatens of divorce with his wife, while I’m assuming because he was… drunk, maybe. Also, they have Texas country favorite track under there belt titled, “Raise Hell and Drink Beer”. I don’t need to explain this song, the song is exactly how you imagine it would be but ten times better.

Eleven Hundred Springs is the kind of band that you wouldn’t slamming 10-too-many cold ones then “accidentally” smashing one over someones head. They are one of the last true Texas country and if you have a chance to see them live you need to check them out.

Your in luck, they’re playing the Granada tonight, just for you.

True Texas outlaws vs. a bunch of Yankees, who do you think is going to win? Did I mention that they have shared the stage many times with our reigning champ Dale Watson? My money is on Eleven Hundred Springs. BOOM!
