Horse Graveyard CD Release Party!

Sandy Bob at Wolf Creek (north of Wolf Point, MT) ,where he was raised.

This Tuesday (8/21) in Olympia, WA, at Little House on on the Perry - 124 Perry St. NW!

"Horse Graveyard" is a collection of North Americana-flavored songs filled with western characters I've known, living and dead. You'll meet Sandy Bob, Bad Becky, Queen Patricia, Sugar Bank Hank, Cowboy Moses, and others. Recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio by Bob Schwenkler, it features the volunteer talents of a gang of Olympia musicians, including Chad Austinson, Abigail Ingram, Pamela Margon, Kelly Ray Smith, Jen Grady, Ephriam Nagler, Jes Raymond, Kendl Winter, Adam Oelsner, and others.

"HORSE GRAVEYARD" will be my first release on Bicycle Records.

From the Facebook invite page:
Chris Sand (AKA "Sandman the Rappin' Cowboy") teamed up with Bicycle Records to create an album of country songs spit from the breaks and badlands of Dakota Territory. It features fiddle, pedal steel, drums, piano, cello, sweet back-up vocals, and, yep, trombone ALL by local Oly musicians. 
Please come help celebrate its release into the stratosphere. He'll be backed by two punk rock North Dakota banjo-pickers. Well, ok, one banjo and one . . . banjelele. 
Opening up the show will be sweet rebels from around the corner, You Are Plural & June Madrona.   
Sliding scale admission $5-$10.  Ten gets you a Chris Sand CD, shirt, or pillow case.
