A Rockin' New Year's Eve

Greetings to all our ALTER EGO-maniacs!
Still haven’t come up with a plan for New Year’s Eve partying yet? Then let us invite you out to HOOLIGAN’S at 13920 I-25 NORTH (off Loop 1604 and Pat Booker Rd., next to the Live Oak Cinema) on DEC. 31, 2005 to celebrate the coming of 2006 with ALTER EGO! The music starts at 9:30 p.m. and goes until the last partygoer leaves the building!

The club is planning on having a great night … and there’s NO COVER! The management is asking that it be a "Black and White" attire night, which pretty much means anything from black jeans and a white T to a tuxedo! We’re going to have a lot of stuff to give away and toss to the crowd to help you get your party on. So why battle miles of traffic to head downtown, when you can make your own fireworks at Hooligan’s I-35!?! Get there early and enjoy some football on the giant screens, and some truly delicious food, served by some of the friendliest people in Texas!

If you’re looking to warm up for the big night a bit, ALTER EGO will also be at MAIN STREET at 13477 WETMORE (just off Thousand Oaks) at 9:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 30. This is a great place on the North side to relax, enjoy some great service and drinks and catch some tunes!

Thanks to everyone who has supported ALTER EGO over the years and we’re looking forward to an even better 2006! See you out there!

Get crazy, get funky on Christmas Eve Eve with ALTER EGO at Hooligan’s I-10!

Looking for a cool way to kick out the jams before settling in for the holiday weekend? Want to get out and get some cold, frosty adult beverages before you’re trapped with the relatives sucking down eggnog? Need to cut loose after that holiday traffic and craziness down at the mall?

ALTER EGO can help, because, well … that’s the kind of people we are! Join the holiday jocularity at the I-10 location of Hooligan’s (10855 IH-10N), located on the northbound access lane, right next to Ancira Nissan. This is a great spot on the North Side, with incredible food, a very friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Hooligan’s knows how to treat their customers AND their bands right, and that’s why we love playing at both locations!

Coming up we’ll be at Main Street at Wetmore and Thousand Oaks on Friday, Dec. 30, and bringing in the New Year at the I-35 Hooligan’s on Saturday, Dec. 31.

In other news, The Edge Magazine is holding their local music readers’ poll for 2005. If you want to make your voice heard, here is your last chance. Copy this link into your internet browser, print out the ballot and send it to the address listed on the ballot by December 31st. If the link does not work, go to click on the magazine cover, the "Issue", and then scroll down to Best of 2005 ballot. Make your voice heard on the ONLY music poll that REALLY matters in San Antonio! We were fortunate enough to win Best Cover Group for 2004 and hope we can count on your support again!

Support your local music scene ... it's up to you!

Booze and Oysters and New Year's!

Booze and Oysters
While 2005 is winding down, the ALTER EGO calendar is winding up to be pretty good for the rest of the year and into 2006!

Coming up on Friday, Dec. 16, we're at one of our new favorite bars, BOOZEHOUNDS, over at 8531 Perrin-Beitel, next to Lack's. If you've never ventured over to this place on the North Side, then you really owe it to yourself to check it out! Great atmosphere, lots of pool tables and a fantastic staff always makes us look forward to playing there! We start at about 10 p.m. and there's no cover!

We recently got some great news from Debbie at Spectrum Booking as well ... we're booked on the main KISS/Miller Lite stage at the 2006 Oyster Bake from 1-2:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 22, 2006!

We don't even know who the headliner is yet, but we're really excited about this great opportunity.

Rounding out the rest of the year, We're also at Hooligan's on I-10 on Friday, Dec. 23, at Main Street Friday Dec. 30 ... and wrap up the year in style at Hooligan's I-35 on Saturday Dec. 31.

We're looking forward to bringing in the New Year in a big way, and Hooligan's is the perfect place to do it. The club will have lots of specials and the band will have lots of giveaways to toss out!

Come in out of the cold with ALTER EGO at the Trap Dec. 9 and Hooligan's Dec. 10

It’s time to come in out of the cold and head to a good neighborhood club, where you can relax, have a few adult beverages and enjoy some good music with friends.

We’d like to invite you to join ALTER EGO on FRIDAY, DEC. 9, as we head to THE TRAP, 4711 PECAN VALLEY (just off E. Southcross). This is our first gig at the Trap in several months and we’re looking forward to having a great time down on the South Side!

Then on SATURDAY, DEC. 10, head up north to HOOLIGAN’S, 13920 I-35N (right next to the Live Oak Cinema) as we rock out one of the hottest places in town! Great food, great drinks and darts and pool. We start at 9:30 p.m. and don’t go offstage until 1:30 a.m. There’s never a cover at Hooligan’s, but always a great crowd! We’ll also be at this Hooligan’s for New Year’s Eve, so why battle the traffic downtown?

Thanks once again for your continuing support and hope to see you soon!
