Sun Hotel + Ava Luna + Narcissy performing at The Big Top on August 2, 2012
The general lull around town you may have noticed is about to come to an end as local bands gear up for tours, drop new music, and keep gaining national attention. It’s gonna be a hot one. Local post-rock heros Sun Hotel – as they have dependably done during every college break/vacation of the last […]
Country Club + Sun Hotel + Caddywhompus performing on May 10, 2012 at 12 Bar
05.10: Caddywhompus + Sun Hotel + Country Club + KG Accidental – 12 Bar
The men in Americana act Country Club have become well-known around New Orleans for their imaginative songwriting, physical talents and drunken raucous live prowess. Unfortunately, it’s all coming to an amicable end tonight at 12 Bar, where Jack Donovan and Co. say farewell to fans and friends, leaving them with one hell of a parting gift. Download new single “Future Days” within, as a preview of tonight’s release of Country Club’s sophomore record, a swan song ripper of an offering.
Sun Hotel and friends performing at Ampersand on April 20, 2012

Chicken Gyro + Sun Hotel + Boyfrndz + Caddywhompus performing at the Circle Bar on March 29, 2012.
03.29: Bomb the Music Industry! + The Lollies + Safety + All People – The Big Top > Boyfrndz + Caddywhompus + Sun Hotel + Chicken Gyro – Circle Bar
To be clear, Block Party is going to be the event of the year for the New Orleans punk rock underground, and it will be difficult for any single concert this year to top the twelve hours of non-stop music, records, food and fun that it’s going to offer. But damned if tonight’s double venue whatever-you-call-it doesn’t come close. Teaming up for what amounts to a mini-festival in its own right, the Community and Chinquapin camps plan to give the public a teaser of what’s in store next month on Clio Street.
It has actually become part of Sun Hotel‘s charm, that even in the short time lapse between tracking and the formal release of each recorded work, the band already appears to be waist deep in their next musical act. Without altogether abandoning or disowning past songs, they routinely tweak or tinker with arrangements in a […]
