Thats right folks, Spinaker will rock Austin Friday January 7th at 10PM at the Vibe. This is a rare opportunity to see the beautifully crafted, catchy and thought-provoking songs of Spinaker performed live by the incredibly talented band. Help us spread the word! Send an email or print out a few flyers.
As a special surprise for the holiday season - Spinaker guitarist Jordan M. Allen will be singing and playing a solo acoustic set of original music on December 20 at 8PM also at the Vibe. After polishing his skills for the past year at open mics and venues at Rice in Houston, Jordan's Austin debut is a gauranteed crowd pleaser. Spinaker fans will recognize a song or two in a different context and with a completely different feel.
Can't wait to see you at the Vibe on Dec. 20th and Jan. 7th!

Stellar, unbelievable, heavenly. What else can I say about the mind blowing CD release performance of the 12th? It topped all other Spinaker shows in every dimension. The band, the fans, the music - they all just made for an unforgetable night (whether it was finally getting your hands on that coveted EP or the sight of a troupe of topless male dancers.) If you missed, you can buy the CD at Waterloo Records on 6th and Lamar or, coming soon, online. Also check back for updates in the multimedia section - new music and video will be up shortly, and the store - for the new EP. Until next time. . .
The date and time is confirmed - next Spinaker show is at the Vibe, August 12th 10PM. See you there!
The moment you have all been waiting for is upon us! After months of nailbiting anticipation, the Spinaker EP will finally hit local Austin record stores and digital distributors (For all you out of towners) sometime before August 15th. And the title has been decided . . . "Shoes and Socks Together Again." This is a must have for, well, everyone in the world. So get ready for Spinaker to rock and roll! As for the CD release party - it will be at the Vibe sometime between the 9th and 15th. You will be notified as soon as the date is confirmed. This will be the last chance to feel the amazing energy, listen to the sensational sound, and see the glorious group for at least another couple months, so don't miss it for the world. It will knock your shoes and socks off (and then you can buy a CD to put them back together again).
Final word on the Houston May 9th show - Spinaker will be live at the Scout Bar at 10:30 PM and broadcast on the Texas Buzz 94.5 FM. Click for directions. Its a work and schoolnight, so if you can't make it be sure to tune in to 94.5 and catch us on the 20th at Fitzgerald's.
Thanks Frank for the pics!
Spinaker is booked in Houston! We're coming in twice during the next month; on May 9th a performance live at the Scout Bar and broadcast on 94.7 the Buzz FM, and on May 20th at Fitzgerald's. Get ready to be rocked H-Town!
Austinites - No cover at Waterloo Ice House on the 30th! Euphoria is going to do an opening set starting at 10PM and Spinaker should be on around 1045PM. Spinaker will also be on the KLBJ stage at the 23rd annual PECAN STREET FESTIVAL on MAY 2nd at 11AM. That will be free as well, so check the festival and the awesome music of Spinaker.
Great show at the Backroom. I know its far away for some, but I love playing there for a couple reasons. First of they have a stage thats big enough for me to really move around, get into the music, and entertain you guys. Second, they have good lighting (which is lacking at most clubs) and good sound. And finally, the bands are more connected, and relationships are formed. The whole show was fun, and Spinaker enjoys playing with Frugal McDuck (known at the Backroom as "Will and Company"). Look for more shows with them in the future. Speaking of future shows, Spinaker is playing a lot of benefit shows this month, including Trojan Live at Anderson this week, and the Bowie Battle of the Bands down in the Bowie theatre on Saturday April 10th starting at 5PM. On April 17th Spinaker is rocking the McCallum band benefit with their good friends Swingin' Charlie and Vertigo at McCallum. Then finally on April 30th, we will be playing a FREE SHOW (benefiting you) at Waterloo Ice House from 10PM-1230AM. You know those shows Waterloo shows are AWESOME. Come early for food. Untill then, here are some Backroom pics.
Thanks Frank for the pics!

Fat Ted's was exactly what Spinaker dreamed of; and more. A terrific turnout including at least twenty five Austinites who drove three and a half hours, plus an untold number of Dallas denizens pumping up the band and keeping them jumping on stage. Without repeating a single song Spinaker excited and entertained the exuberant fans for all three hours of the performance, blending originals, jams, covers, and solo performances by band members into one hell of a show. OK ok, I know you wish you were there. Here are some pics. If you were there, you might see yourself in one of these crowd shots.
