In the continuing tradition of awesome Austin parties, the White Ghost Shivers will hold their annual Halloween Ball on Friday, October 31st, 2014
Eleven years and running, this event has become the gold standard in celebrating all things dark and dangerous and this year will be no exception, bringing the fun in a literary fashion.

Held at the historic Saengerrunde Halle, "A Night of Grimm Tales" will offer those old and young of heart, or young and old of heart, a night of classic story telling and music. One shall be entertained by arts so nefarious that the impression will linger till your last breathe. Music for the evening will consist of the hilly billy howling of Clyde and Clem's Whiskey Business, the continually enlightening East Cameron Folkcore, and our one and only little darlings of Austin ragtime, The White Ghost Shivers. This dastardly ball of yarns brings together the best brawlers, bawlers, and bastards whose ballads will be sure to keep you dancing!

We will also have adult beverages provided by our friends at Dos XX. You can grab pre-paid tickets here or feel free to grab them at the door. So come out for the libations and stay for the frivolity!

Happy Holidays!

December 05, 2013

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!




We'll be playing with some art at The Blanton Museum on November 30, then headed to NY for special parties on January 5, 6. New record on the rise.
