The Hickoids w/ Dr Green Dreams at Volcanic

- ALL AGES
Austin Music Hall of Famers Hickoids are heading out on a couple of tours this spring and summer. They're bringing along the The Beaumonts on a slew of dates, including their Nashville stop, where they’ll donate some of fallen Hickoid Davy Jones’ ephemera to the Country Music Hall of Fame. This is the first Nashville show in 30 years, and it’s evident that the Beaumonts have an ulterior motive for making the trip. Panhandle music magnate and longtime personal manager of the The Beaumonts, Coody Gold commented, "While in Nashville The Beaumonts are on a mission to check in on a fellow they gave a start to, a guy named Wheeler Walker Jr. While they are flattered that he has chosen to co-opt their look and presentation, they feel he may have gone overboard with the profanity and have heard rumors that he might be trying to 'live out the songs he wrote'...The members of The Beaumonts may have individually lost their way from time to time but consider their songs to be cautionary tales, not playbooks. They'd hate to see the young man that had so much promise when they took him under their wing go down in flames Icarus style.”
Following what is sure to be an epic run to Nashville, Little Rock and Shreveport, the Hickoids and the Beaumonts will join their pals the Loco Gringos for Gringopalooza in Dallas on May 28th. All this action will be filmed, as the Hicks are launching a webisodic program "Rode Hard" which will be an off-beat mixture of a reality travel show, fish out of water comedy and Rowan and Martin/Hee Haw-esque variety half-hour.
