ALTER EGO slams the Northeast Side

After a phenomenal jam-packed show at Roxy’s last week, ALTER EGO heads back up to the Northeast side of town for a pair of gigs at two very cool locations.

First off, THANK YOU for all our friends who came out for the first Friday of the year at Roxy’s. Special thanks to our fellow musicians Wongo and Amanda from Prototype and the lead singer from Roadtrip for hanging out and supporting the scene! There’s a reason Roxy’s is a great place for bands to play, and it’s because they CARE about their bands and their customers! They don’t go for the trend of the week, they just provide a great place to hang out, drink some adult beverages, and listen to music!

Coming up on FRIDAY, JAN. 13, we’ll be at TRIPP’S HUMOUR BAR at 210 E. AVIATION, just off Pat Booker Road. Always lots of friendly faces at this comfortable place on the NE Side, and always a favorite destination.

On SATURDAY, JAN. 14, we head back to HOOLIGAN’S, over at 13920 I-35N (right next to the Live Oak Cinema, just off Loop 1604 and Pat Booker). What else can I say about Hooligan’s other than this place ROCKS! Great food, great staff, great drinks and a good time had by all.In other news, thanks to Pace Concerts, we just got booked to play at the SBC CENTER (now called the AT&T CENTER) from 5:30-7 p.m. on WEDNESDAY, JAN. 25, on the patio prior to the AEROSMITH/LENNY KRAVITZ show. This event is in conjunction with KZEP Radio, so if you’re heading down a bit early for the show, come on by and hang out for a while! Add this to the rodeo on Feb. 9 and Oyster Bake Apr. 22, and we have truly been very fortunate so far, and it thanks to all of you for supporting ALTER EGO! Thanks to everyone on the San Antonio music scene and see ya out there soon!

ALTER EGO rocks the Roxy and the Rodeo; KROK radio is gone

Greetings to all our ALTER EGO-maniacs!
After a great time and a great crowd at Hooligan's on New Year's Eve, we're looking forward to an even better 2006 for ALTER EGO! We'll start the year off in style at 9:30 p.m. FRIDAY, JAN. 6, at one of our favorite places to play, the ROXY, over at 3249 WURZBACH, just across from the Ingram Park Mall. This is one club that really knows how to take care of its customers and the bands that play there!

In other news, ALTER EGO has been selected to play at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo on Thursday, Feb. 9, at the Budweiser tent. I don't have all the details yet, but we'll be playing for about two or three hours that night and it will be a promotion in conjunction with the San Antonio Rampage hockey team.

Thanks to all who have supported the band over the past four years and we're looking forward to entertaining you for a long time to come. Many new songs in the works, and new promotional merchandise to come soon. Let's rock San Antonio in 2006!

It was sad to see KROK radio disappear suddenly on Jan. 1 to become the "Jack" which is playing all kinds of stuff, but not much real rock. KROK were great friends of ALTER EGO and helped us with a afew promotopnal appearances and helped get the opening slot at the Cheap Trick/Def Leppard show. The new format does not even have DJ's, just music and commercials. This was strictly a business decision by Infinity Broadcasting, and the bottom line is that a radio station has to make money. To make money, it has to have support, and the listeners have to buy the products advertised on the radio. No matter how good the music is, no matter how great the people are, it still comes down to the bottom line. This is a wake-up call, San Antonio. Support your radio stations, support your clubs, support your music scene ... or it won't be around.
