23 Songs a Surfin…

December 20th, 2011 No comments

On the fifth day of Christmas, those sapiens gave to me… 23 songs a surfin! Last night we locked in the official set list for the 3rd Annual Holiday Ho-Daddy show this Thursday night at Byrne’s Pub, so we wanted to give all of you anticipatory ‘ominids a sneak peek at the mayhem!

In true Ho-Daddy fashion, we are literally playing every song we know, and have added a couple dichotomous ditties for your yuletide enjoyment.

Tunes start at 8:30 p.m., so come on out and support the Mid-Ohio Foodbank!

There’s no place like Byrne’s for the Holidays!

Once again we find ourselves throwing on the animal skins, waxing up the boards and ripping up the Paleolithic surf on the Glacial Moraine – That’s right, it’s time for the Third Annual Holiday Ho-Daddy Benefit Concert!!

This year we’re back at the ever-accommodating Byrne’s Pub in Grandview, playing every song we know – and probably a few we don’t! – to raise money for one of our favorite causes, the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.

When: Thursday, December 22nd at 8:30 p.m.
Where: Byrne’s Pub – 1248 West 3rd Ave. – Columbus 43212
Cover: $5.00 donation to the FoodBank

The Mid-Ohio Foodbank has been on the front lines of hunger for more than thirty years, and through its network of partner organizations provide more than 50,000 meals every day to hungry Ohio families. What’s even more amazing is that the Foodbank turns every dollar donated into eight dollars worth of groceries, making them not only one of the most helpful organizations on the block, but also masters of altruistic alchemy!

Cover for entry will be $5.00 at the door, and as always every dollar of that goes directly to the Foodbank. We’ll also be accepting additional donations above the door donation all night, so any time the mood strikes you can toss a couple extra bucks into the copper cauldron on the Byrne’s stage and know that you’re making a big difference to Ohio families in need.

Keep checking back for the official poster and set list for this year’s show, and we hope to see you all at Byrne’s on the 22nd!

CVG wrap-up and Autralosurfecus’ productive autumn…

Hello humans! We want to thank CVG and everyone who came to the auto show. It was a great time and we raised some money for wonderful causes. Check this out for a glimpse of the event! (Thanks to CVG for putting this together) It was much warmer than we thought and it was a perfect day. We had an electircal malfunction in the middle of the first tune, but this doesn’t stop us. Remember when we were first around there was no electricity.

Since the show we have been hibernating in the Surf Cave! We have written two new tunes that we are looking forward to playing for everyone. We have unearthed the fossilized ‘red drum set’ and after careful cataloging and precision cleaning it is now in the cave for Drumbuie to wail on. A tear was seen in Drumbuie’s eye as he was reconnected with another artifact from our original time period! We have the Holiday Ho-Daddy coming up and a C.F. Foundation walk booked for spring, so keep checking for updates on these. We’ll see you soon.
