THE HAPPEN-INS – SATURDAY, 3/7 @ 3:00PM
The Happen-ins are a rock-and-roll/rhythm-and-blues band based in Austin, TX. Formed in 2009 by founding members Sean Faires, Ricky Ray Jackson, John Michael Schoepf and Falcon Valdez soon after the nearly concurrent break-ups of previous projects The Dedringers and Lomita, their self-titled debut record The Happen-ins piles hooks on top of hooks on top of sweaty, no-frills grooves. Following tours with Roky Erickson, The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn, and Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights, they recorded their second record entitled Glamour Shots with producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Patty Griffin, Heartless Bastards). When Jackson parted ways with the band, vocalist and guitarist Evan Charles stepped in to fill the void. This new lineup has already begun work on the follow-up EP to Glamour Shots, which is set for a Late Fall 2014 release.
