SXSW Official & Renegade Showcases...............


We are officially on the Short List for the SXSW Ferstival....

So like so many other awesome Austin bands we are on call to play The Festival whenever a band from Nova Scotia, Finland, Bulgaria, or wherever cancels.

We will send out a torrent of text messages, emails, and telegraphs when we get our official date set.

Here are a few of our Non-official Showcases:

(We will not call them SXSW, since the people at the festival get very mad when you do that!)



Hey we got a write up in the Flagstaff Weekly for our show tonight.

We have decided to join the 20th Century and begin keeping a blog.

We will try to write interesting things that y'all want to read. A random assortment of Dutch oven recipes, hidden campsites, Landry's new art projects, and all the rad people we meet on the road.


The Austin Sound Reviews our New Video


We woke up this morning and finally after 100,000 miles on the road we are famous! REALLY FAMOUS!!! Thanks world wide web... Check out this awesome review of our new Music video from Austin's premiere Indie Rock news outlet/ purveyors of all that's cool: THE AUSTIN SOUND

"The Lonesome Heroes are a wandering lot, so maybe we shouldn't be too surprised that it took them about three years to make a video for "Don't Play to Lose". We give them a pass on the old tune, though, because the video is pretty great. How can you not love two adorable kids escaping from some hardcore bikers and bouncers?! It's like Goonies II: Goonies in the City! Or something. Kudos to Daniel Stolzman of Frameless Films for directing the video, and to Rich Russell and Landry McMeans for wherever they dug up their younger counterparts. As for the Heroes themselves, they'll be back in town after last month's trek up into the north east for a gig at the Continental Club on Saturday, January 16 with Lil' Travis and Grand Champeen. Check out the video below:"
