The Cow Ponies & Liar’s Trial @ Kochanski’s Sunday Matinee, Sun., 2.18.18

The Cow Ponies and Liar’s Trial, two Milwaukee alternative country bands, are back together again, playing at Kochanski’s Concertina Beer Hall’s Sunday Matinee. We met each other the summer of 2016 at Linneman’s when we were part of the lineup for the Gram Parsons 70th Birthday Bash that was making its way around the U.S. and Europe. The Cow Ponies, led by John Graham, and Liar’s Trial, led by Bryan Kroes, teamed up to play Kochanski’s Sunday Matinee a year ago in 2017, and man, did we have a blast! Up for a redux? We thought so! Only 7 bucks at the door. Bring a few extra clams and get you the new Cow Ponies CD, “Easy to Fall,” released a couple-a months ago on Dec. 2. Hope 2 C U!

The Cow Ponies @ Red Dot Tosa, Sat., 12.16.17

As the snow starts to fly in Southeast Wisconsin, we’re heading out to the west side of Milwaukee to play our first-ever show at Red Dot, 6715 North Avenue in the East Tosa neighborhood of Wauwatosa! No cover. Show starts at 9 p.m. and goes to 11:30 p.m.

If it’s still cold out, Red Dot will be the perfect place to warm up with some great food (Saturday is BBQ Night) and drink (choose from over 70 tasty beverages on the drink menu alone), not to mention there’s always some good-ole raucous Cow Ponies music to get yer blood circulatin’ too! Big thanks to Marty for having us. 

Because we’re fresh off of last weekend’s release of our new CD “Easy to Fall,” we’ll bring some discs, along with our T-shirts and buttons (the latter handcrafted by Tom T, yo). Can’t wait to see ya!
