Congratulations to Athens, GA rockers Part Bear who took the written vote in their hometown. Saturday’s event at Tasty World was a fantastic representation of the different types of music that RedGorilla showcases in Austin every year.
Part Bear’s live show is energetic and appeals to fans of The Whigs, The Replacements, The Pixies, etc. The trio will be featured in the official 2009 festival program guide as well as secured a prime time spot on the RedGorilla stage. For more on Part Bear visit http://www.myspace.com/partbear
