Ticket Giveaway - Heartless Bastards - 1.23.12 - Mr Smalls - Show Preview - Concert Preview

Heartless Bastards will be making another appearance in Pittsburgh. They were here this time last year appearing at a sold out show at Club Cafe. This time they will be making a stop next Wendesday, 1/23 at Mr Smalls Theater. The band is still touring behind last year's breakout album, Arrow which saw them gather much critical acclaim as well as selling out venues across the country including here. We are giving away a pair of tickets to the show. As usual just email us at with your name to enter. 

From their bio:

Brimming with confidence and creativity, Arrow sees Heartless Bastards pushing their distinctive sound forward with their most eclectic, energetic collection thus far. The album – the Austin, Texas-based band’s first release with Partisan Records – is marked as ever by singer/guitarist/songwriter Erika Wennerstrom’s remarkable voice, at turns primal and pleading, heartfelt and heroic. Songs like “Parted Ways” and the searing “Low Low Low” expertly capture the Bastards’ multi-dimensional rock in all its strength and spirit. Following upon the difficult introspection of 2009’s acclaimed third album, The Mountain, Arrow stands as a powerhouse new beginning for Heartless Bastards.

Arrow showcases the depth and breath of the band’s indelible sound, with songs like “Got To Have Rock and Roll” and “Down In The Canyon” lighting upon spaghetti western film scores, Seventies soul, psychedelia, funk, blues, glam, and mudhole-stomping hard rock. Two years of nearly non-stop touring resulted in an astonishing musical telepathy among Heartless Bastards, with all four players intuitively able to craft Wennerstrom’s songs into maximum form.

Show begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Tickets are only $15 and can be found here
