Spider Bags and The Golden Boys have done plenty of recording on each other’s records, and the Spider Bags’ upcoming 7″, “Take it Easy Tonite” features a b-side written and sung by Bryan Schmitz of the Golden Boys. You might recognize Harlem’s Jose Boyer as one-time Spider Bags bassist, before he moved to Austin.

    • We haven’t seen set times for this show yet, but it runs from 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM, and The Loners are billed in the middle, so we’d guess they’ll play around 2:00. We’ll post more on Twitter as we learn it. Lots of other great locals on this bill as well, including Red Collar, The Old Ceremony, Des Ark, Maple Stave, Flute Flies, and NAPS.
