the good excuses

Tonight the tournament continues, although it will be a very quick match-up. We are hosting the Open Jam at The Legendary Dobbs tonight, so we need to end the show around 7:00pm. That means we are squeezing 3 rounds of Band vs Band Tournament of Champions into 1 hour! This will make for an action-packed hour, so let’s see who up for tonight:


The Good Excuses: Earlier this month, these guys knocked out Easy Company, a band many listeners picked to go all the way. This past weekend we got to see them live, and they did not disappoint. Their lyrics are fun, their music is well-written, and their live show is fun to say the least. Well be seeing a lot more of these guys in the new year. In fact, January 18th we are headed down to Atlantic City to see them and many other great bands at The Grand Fromage. Go to for more info, and grab their album 30 Minutes or Less off of iTunes.


Amber Ladd: Amber also has 1 win under her belt in this Tournament. Earlier this month she released her new album eleKtro which is sure to add momentum in the competition. Fresh off the album release party (with The Good Excuses coincidentally) Amber will be playing an acoustic show at World Cafe Live on January 12th, and she will also be playing the Grand Fromage on 1/18. Go to the new and improved for more info, and to pick up the latest album eleKtro.


Today (between 6-7pm ET) we will play 3 songs from each artist. If you like what you hear, click the thumbs up button during the song (thumbs down votes do not count during tournament rounds). These votes will determine which band will move on to the semi-finals, which will be held this Friday against Magnificent Birds of Prey.


In addition to the Tournament, we will be debuting the music of Meg Olsen. So please join us for Gashouse Live, normally weekdays 6-10pm ET. Tonight will be a super short edition, because we would like you to join us at The Legendary Dobbs afterwards for the Open Jam! Its a free event, all are welcome, musicians are encouraged to sign up and play. Drink specials and a ton of fun, so we will see you tonight!
