We're cooling off by hittin' the studio in preparations for the release of our upcoming record, due out later this year.
In the mean time, check out our summer shows! We'll be down in Houston, Gruene Hall, and of course our favorite Austin spots.
See ya soon!
Well folks, Winter in Austin is gone, and allergy season is here! We've got a bunch of shows in the Spring, but for now, let's concentrate on the task at hand.....CONFUSAPALOOZA II !!
That's right, we've assembled our favorite bands whose names are quite easily confused. This year we've got a GREAT lineup : White Ghost Shivers, Whiskey Shivers, Clyde and Clem's Whiskey Business, and The Ghost Wolves. The party will be April 4, at Empire Control Room, in Austin. Advance tickets are now available HERE and are only $10 in advance!!
The Facebook event is HERE
Won't you join us?!?!?
Well it’s that time of year again where we take some time to visit family, drink hot beverages, and watch classic holiday movies. However, don’t fret dear people! We still have some shows on the books to keep the blood flowing!
Houston, it’s time to open wide and gobble us up for Thanksgiving! We’re coming to the Mucky Duck the day before Thanksgiving for a special show, you’ll never see so many turkeys on one stage!
Nov 27, we’re back at home playing with two of our favorite bands to play with, Clyde & Clem’s Whiskey Business and East Cameron Folkcore! Also, speaking of favorites, the night opens with a special site specific performance by our absolute favorite theater group in town, Paper Chairs! They will be performing a re-launch of their hit, ‘Murder Ballad Mystery’.
What about December? Dec. 10th & 11th you ask? Well, we can’t think of a better way to spend a few wintery nights soaking ourselves in Gin than playing our favorite party in the world, in NY! That’s right, Hendrick’s Gin decided to tack on one more party for the year, in Brooklyn! Check the calendar for RSVP info and the absolutely glorious location. As usual, our buddies at Hendrick’s will no doubt find the right place for this scandalous night of revelry!
Finishing up the year, we will be performing at our absolute favorite honky-tonk in the universe, the White Horse. If you’ve heard of these famed shows as of late, there’s really no need to go into too much detail. Always lots of whiskey and nudity. Oh, and music and dancing as well. Hmmm, maybe Santa will be there? If he is, surely he will not be wearing any clothes.
See ya next year and happy holidays from the Shivers Shack!

Summer may not officially be here as of yet, but it is literally knocking at our door here in sunny Austin, TX! Do you know what that means? It means that it gets hot and we start losing our clothes here in ATX, which, can also be said for WGS shows this summer!

Bring the whole family to Central Market, bring the teenagers to Threadgill’s, but get a babysitter for the Continental Club! Also, make sure you stay tuned in for the many unannounced and surprise “small” shows we’ll be doing, along with the handful of events we’ll be doing with our pals at Hendrick’s Gin in L.A., Chicago, Boston, and Philly!
