Last night's show at the Last Concert Cafe
was righteous. We rocked out and ate a lot of watermelon. Thanks to everybody who came out and supported the cause, and to all the other bands who rocked out (Fahl & Folk, Blendt, Potroast, Opie Hendrixs, The Hightailers, and Plump).

For any of y'all in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area - Ian's going to be filling in on keys with Topaz
at the Green Elephant tonight at 11pm. Should be a wild show - if you've never heard Topaz, it's super tight funk with awesome musicians. Definitely a dancing kinda thing. Go check it.
Our friend, Radio Mike
, is looking for some help - he's trying to raise money for podcast licensing fees and equipment. He's played DT on the show several times, and is a great supporter of new talent. If you can, swing by and show him some love
We've updated the pricing in our albums section

We've added a few new ways you can keep track of the Drop Trio shows calendar
First, if you use Google Calendar
, you can now subscribe to Drop Trio's public shows
. That way, our shows calendar will appear as an additional calendar when you log in to google calendar.
If you use other calendar software like Apple's iCal
or Mozilla Sunbird
, you can subscribe to our ical feed
. Then our events will show up in your calendar app.
Or if you don't do either of those, but want to see the latest up-to-the-minute changes and additions in our schedule, you can view a live calendar
on the web.
Who loves ya? That's right, Google does. Oh, and us
Thanks to everybody who came out to the Extemporama
show at Super Happy Fun Land
on Saturday night. We had a blast, and really enjoyed playing a set of all-improvised analog synth madness. We'll put some audio up for your enjoyment soon. Big thanks to JamHouston
for making it happen, and to Blabat
, Muzak John, and Friendship Bracelet for bringing their own awesome contributions of rad improvised music.
We had a great time at last night's Geek Party
. We were a little disappointed that nobody recognized the stinkoman theme
, however. Come on, are we really the biggest geeks at a geek party?
Well, if you'd rather hear us play crazy improv, you're in luck tonight:
Howdy all! Hope you're having a good summer. We've been taking it real chill-like for a few weeks, but we're about ready to pop back into gear again.
First off, please consider voting for Drop Trio in the "Best Jazz" category on the Houston Press Music Awards
Second, come see us this weekend in Houston! We've got 2 cool (and unusual) shows coming up.
On Friday, we'll be at Dean's Credit Clothing
celebrating the 11 year anniversary of the Technology Bytes
radio show on KPFT
. It's open to the public and free to get in (21 + over only), so come unleash your inner geek. Or hell, even your outer geek.
Then, on Saturday, we'll be performing at Super Happy Fun Land
as part of JamHouston's Extemporama
series! Should be a wacky night. We'll be sharing the stage with 3 of our favorite weird-ass bands in Houston: Muzak John
, Friendship Bracelet, and Blabat
(with Jarle Lillemoen from Grass
and Groovin' Ground
See you then!
