Farewell Party for Josh (You know, the cool quiet guy who plays guitar and sings in Peel.)

Peel says goodbye for now (Statesman Austin360.com blog by Patrick Caldwell)

For Peel fans, this is a bittersweet occasion - a farewell to guitarist/vocalist Josh Permenter of Peel - who moves on to San Francisco - surely a trade up for him, but a loss for the Austin music community. No official word from Peel yet, but I have high hopes that the band will continue to record and tour in some form. Catch dance troupe Little Stolen Moments at 9:00, a later {{{Sunset}}} at 10:00, and Peel ends the night of music at 11:00. Get to Baby Blue early to enjoy the keg, the music, and conversation with Josh. (Cry in your beer and beg him to stay.)

This will also be a July birthday for friends and fans of Peel, and another farewell party of sorts for a friend going away for a little while.

Facebook Invite: Blastoff at Baby Blue

Addendum: I announced the news on the MySpace blog, where this all began, but forgot to mention here (duh) that DIY ATX is switching from update blog for my booking and promotion venture to a blog about some of my favorite local d-i-y and indie label artists. My picks for hot, don't miss shows will be a random online affair, but I hope to post at least one show a week. A music events calendar is coming soon. For news about my booking and promotion ventures, go to my Anti-Gravity blog.
