Pop quiz, hotshot: did you know that the "Courage" release show is in less than three weeks? Oh yes it is. And to get you even more psyched about it, we have yet ANOTHER video for you.
This is from the private performance of “Courage” at The Living Room Studio in July 2012. Basically, we took over the studio one more time to turn it into a live venue where we performed the album in its entirety with help from many of the guest musicians who are featured in the recordings. (Yes, this show is the origin of the footage from the “Courage” trailer, which you can and should view HERE). We will be releasing more videos from the show as we get closer to the release, but you can get a piece of the action below by watching ”Sandcastles” from that very special night.

But that’s not all! We also want to use this post to formally announce the first leg of the COURAGE TOUR. That’s right, we’ll be taking the show on the road to get our record in as many hands (ears?) as possible, and our Louisiana friends who live outside of New Orleans will be able to check us out on the following dates….
- 11/28 - Baton Rouge, LA: Varsity Theater with The Dash Between, Luxley, and Maps and Makers
- 11/29 - Lafayette, LA: Artmosphere with Carbon Poppies
- 11/30 - New Orleans, LA: COURAGE RELEASE SHOW at the House of Blues Parish Room with Sports & Leisure (Click HERE for Facebook event so all your friends can see how cool you are by going to this)
- 12/1 - Shreveport, LA: Bear’s on Fairfield
If you would like to purchase tickets in advance to either the Baton Rouge or New Orleans shows, either click HERE or contact a band member to get one without the service charge (yes, we’ll come to you. with big smiles on our faces). Remember that if you are among the first to buy a ticket from a member of Vox and the Hound for the release show on 11/30, you will get a FREE SHOW POSTER. We don’t have many show posters left, so move fast if you want one (if you want to get in on this, contact any band member you feel comfortable being seen in public with, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or click HERE to purchase them from our online store. You can also buy record/ticket combo deals there as well as other goodies).
Finally, we want to thank our good friend Dominque LeJeune for writing an awesome article on us for Antigravity Magazine. The issue (their 100th!) is out on newsstands in New Orleans now, and should be on their website soon. Go read (if you can)!
Get all that? Good. It was a mouthful. Take a minute to process all the info and don’t forget to come get Courageous with us on November 30 at the Parish! You know we could all be a bit more courageous.
We all sing,
We all bark,
