The quintet’s third album garnered critical accolades from The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, MTV Hive, MSN Music, AOL The Boot and many others while the band made their first-ever debut on Billboard Top 200 and Billboard Country Chart (#14). Lone Star Music Awards named Goodbye Normal Street as 2013′s Album of the Year and chose “Good Lord Lorrie” as 2013′s Song of the Year.
The Troubadours’ strengths are in the quality of their songwriting and their incredible live shows, which is why their fan base has grown steadily since their inception. Their 2009 release, Diamonds & Gasoline sold over 30,000 copies independently and the band has been consistently selling out shows, playing to over 1,000 people on many nights. Read more

Sometimes it’s hard not to enjoy what I do. The long hours, lack of sleep, endless nights of editing seem never too difficult when you get to experience a show this impressive. At one point in the night I had to be reminded it was only Monday by front man David King and that I had to be up in a few hours but honestly I didn’t care, I was surround by good people and watching a band that cranked out damn good music.
To start my night off I was introduced to a new to most band, Dead is Dead. Best label I can think of for DiD (which I kind of don’t like doing) would be a garage band. The tricky thing is they’re only just barely what you’d consider a garage band. Now granted their sound isn’t all that smooth or fleshed out but after a bit of a rough start and picking up their energy a bit they started to impress me. Between their comfort on stage cracking one liners and conversing with the crowd they’re base line tone started to come out. With a bluesy, throw back kind of punk vibe Dead is Dead did an impressive job at setting the tempo for the night and didn’t leave that stage without impressing quite a few of us in the crowd.
