Music and College

I’ve finally gotten some downtime in the middle of a long week.  We went to SMU on Monday and played the sorority houses to promote our Dallas House of Blues Show next Friday (HOB Dallas Show)  Then it was schoolwork for me, with a 4 page paper and midterm in Investments II (which I no doubt failed miserably).  After the test I hit the road for College Station for an acoustic show on-campus last night.  The drive was incredible…windows down, sunflower seeds, Third Eye Blind and the Fray, sunglasses, straight to the soul.  Now I’m about to go do a radio performance and interview at 1pm (listen here) and tonight the rest of the band is driving down and we’re playing at Mugwalls here in College Station (Mugwalls Show).  This show I am particularly excited about because it will be our first full-band show to headline here in College Station and the people here have responded really well to the music.  It shows that the Sorority Tour is working, which is exciting and relieving after handing out so many free CDs.  Last night the on-campus show was amazing…an awesome turnout and it was fun to play a solo show since I haven’t done that in a while.  They actually had a baby grand piano for me to play on, which was a major plus.  Tomorrow I’m going to Katy, Texas to play acoustic at Dunn Bros. Coffee Shop (Dunn Bros. Show) which works out perfect because I can catch the TCU baseball game earlier that afternoon.  One more piece of exciting news:  we got offered a showcase at Red Gorilla Music Fest!  We’ll be performing at 7pm on Thursday, March 18th at Cuba Libre in Austin, Texas.  If you’re in the area, please come check it out!

If you enjoy the music and want to take a part in helping promote it, I’d love to have you on-board.  The biggest thing right now that you can do to help is to recommend the Facebook Fan Page to your friends on Facebook.  Click here to do it.  I am all about letting others take part in this journey with me.  If you have any other ideas for promotion or talents that you want to use to help out, please e-mail me at makeorbreak@timhalperin.com  Thanks for enjoying the music, stay tuned as this journey continues to get more exciting!
