This is a series we're doing in partnership with Exploded Drawing and False Flat.  These are split-45 singles with an out-of-town guest on the A side and on the flip, we have a member of Exploded Drawing representing Texas.  How the distribution works:  We press up 150 copies, with no re-press and no itunes.  We book a show either here in Austin or in the city of the producer on the A side.  Then we give them away for FREE at the door with the cost of admission (normally $5).  So in effect “You have to be there” in order to get a copy. We will not sell these 45s on-line and they will not be distributed nationally.  You can stream both songs and they will be available digitally in exchange for your email address at:
