We’re honored to be headlining the final night of TwangFest on June 13th with our good friends Eric Ambel and Jimbo Mathis on the same bill. The festival has a phenomenal line-up this year!

Hello Friends! We’re looking for someone to host an acoustic Bottle Rockets Living Room Show in Chicago on June 15, 2015.

Please read everything below and get in touch if you live in Chicago and can host the show.

Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, May 19.

We’ll go through all the emails and figure which place works best. Then we’ll confirm the show and put tickets on sale.

Here’s how it works.

1. You have a house or loft space that can comfortably and safely host 45-50 people. A place with a big living room, finished basement or other interior space would be ideal. Sorry, we can’t do these shows outside. There needs to be enough parking or public transportation nearby and your neighbors should be cool. It would be a huge bummer if someone called the cops because of all the extra cars and people coming to your house. You should probably not do this if you live in a tiny apartment with a bunch of uptight neighbors or a cranky landlord. It would be great if you had some seating available… couches, folding chairs, etc. But not required. If no seating is available then we’ll let people know it’s floor seating or standing.

2. The shows will not be open to the public and no tickets will be sold at the door. We will pre-sell a set number of tickets for each show on the Bottle Rockets website before the show. Be realistic on how many people your space can hold. We need to know how many tickets we can sell in advance. We’ve found that 45-50 people is what the average living room can hold. Ticket price will be $25.

3. We will provide you with a detailed list of everyone who will be coming to the show. The host won’t have to deal with any money and will only need to check people off the list as they arrive.

4. The host gets 5 additional free tickets for the show for friends. If you have other friends who want to come to the show you can direct them to the link to buy tickets on-line.

5. You don’t need any sort of sound system. All you need is 4 chairs for the band to sit on. A small table and lamp would be nice too.

6. Your home address will not be published on the web and will only be given to those people who purchase tickets.

7. The shows will not be promoted or advertised anywhere except our websites and word-of-mouth.

8. There will be no opening acts on the living room shows.

If you are interested, please follow these steps:

1. Ask your spouse, special friend or life partner FIRST. Make sure it’s cool with everyone who lives in your house before you volunteer.

2. email with all of these things:
– a. your address
– b. a few photos of your living room
– c. IMPORTANT: please put “Bottle Rockets Living Room Show” in the subject line of your email so it can get past our spam filter.

3. Sit tight and we’ll get back to as soon as possible.

Thanks for your help!

Hello Friends! Maybe you heard the news? We’re making a new album with our long-time producer/collaborator Eric “Roscoe” Ambel. The songs are all there and recording is underway! We’re shooting for a Spring 2015 release on Bloodshot Records. Bloodshot has always been very supportive and this time is no different (best record label ever!!!). But we’re trying something different with this album. Basically, instead of traveling to New York and trying to make the entire record in a single 10-day period, we’re breaking it up into several 4-day sessions at Sawhorse Studios in Saint Louis. This way we can focus more on the music and not be up against the clock. We’ve already recorded the first four songs and everything is sounding amazing. We want to keep the quality high and make the best possible album for you. Doing it this way is costing more than our previous albums, so we came up with a plan to raise funds for anyone who wants to help and you’ll get some very cool limited edition stuff in exchange.

Here’s the deal:

Executive Producer Package

1. Limited Edition “Executive Producer” T-shirt.
This new shirt was designed by the incredibly talented Chris Kro and is only available as part of this fund raiser. There will be no re-prints after the sales period is over.

2. Limited Edition Postcard with Demo Song Download Code.
Postcard with a download code to get an exclusive demo recording of a song from the album. Not available anywhere else.

3. Your name in the liner notes of our new album.
That’s right! We’ll put your name in the liner notes of our new album as an executive producer.


The fund raiser will end on Tuesday, January 12. All packages will be shipped to arrive by February 14th.

That’s it. Your support is greatly appreciated! We think this will be your favorite Bottle Rockets album yet.

The Bottle Rockets
Brian, Mark, John and Keith

* Please note: The new album is not included in this limited edition merchandise package. The album will be available for purchase in-stores and online from Bloodshot Records later in the spring (exact release date TBA).
