For those of you in San Antonio who are not going to Austin for SXSW, Buttercup is playing very special show on Saturday night (MARCH 21) at the historic Alamo Music Store. The show will be fantastic combination of cathartic crazy rock ‘n roll and an intimate setting. Buttercup is accompanied by the Navaira brothers, a lineup that brings out our most rocking side. Show starts early: Buttercup plays at 7 PM sharp. Doors open at 6:30. There is free beer. It’s technically free, with a suggested donation. Do what you can.
With Michael J and the Foxes, a fun, beautiful harmonies alt-country band fronted by the super talented Michael Carillo. Make sure to RSVP online, to ensure you get a spot. http://bit.ly/basementsessions3

Buttercup has completed 11 songs with producer Danny Reisch. These songs were recorded solely with acoustic guitar, electric bass and voice – but ended up sounding huge, even anthemic. They are the pieces for the tight, hyper minimal live show that Buttercup occasionally performs as “Grand Marais”. The band will release some version of these songs this year, perhaps as a full album or as an EP.
Buttercup performs these songs Friday Jan 23 @ the 502 Club in San Antonio w/ Deer Vibes and Marcus Rubio.

RARE BUTTERCUP PERFORMANCE> Buttercup kicks off the second night of Luminaria in San Antonio, Saturday Nov 8.
Buttercup has assembled a great set of songs -that lean heavily psychedelic and thoroughly life-affirming. This will be a rock and roll set, fully and completely. Erik will play electric guitar – something that rarely happens, for no good reason.
