The Second Day of Christmas

Welcome to Day 2 of my Twelve Days of Christmas. Congratulations to yesterday’s winners, both of whom are receiving a copy of the Electric Ornaments CD compilation.

Today’s gift is courtesy of the fine folks at Wellhouse Co, who are bringing some mighty fine shows to Lochrann’s in Frisco. For those who haven’t been paying attention over the past six months or so, Wellhouse and Spune have brought some first rate local acts to the once musical ghost town of Frisco. Acts that have graced the Lochrann’s stage include Somebody’s Darling, The Happy Bullets, Dove Hunter, Cocky Americans, and The Virgin Wolves. And that’s not even counting Rhett Miller and all the acts at Oysterfest. Personally, I’d recommend following Wellhouse on the Facebook, because you will want to stay in the loop in regards to their shows.

But, I digress…

Wellhouse was kind enough to donate a $30 tab at Lochrann’s, good for food and/or drinks (and yes, that includes drinks with alcohol). There’s not a specific date it has to be used, but I would really, really, REALLY encourage you to take advantage of this offer tomorrow night.

Why tomorrow night, you ask? Fresh off their performance at my showcase at Green Elephant, Pale Horse is performing this Thursday at Lochrann’s. For those who have only seen the band at my most recent showcase, there will be a drummer at this show. So while I must say that the stripped down Pale Horse had a super cool vibe that reminded me of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s Howl period, this will be a full on rock show. The opening act will be Ronnie Fauss. His tune “I Can’t Make You Happy” was a big favorite of mine last year, and tunes like “Wish” and “Driving Through Memphis” off of this year’s Mulligan EP show that he’s no one hit wonder.

Want to win this $30 tab? All you have to do is answer this question…

What Pale Horse tune shares its name with a Top 10 hit by Linda Ronstadt? GOBL readers shouldn’t have a hard time figuring this one out, as this particular Pale Horse song has been a staple on the Lucky Thirteen for the past several months.

The first person to email me at with the correct answer in the subject line wins the tab. Good luck!
