Biography

For over a year here in Austin we’ve been doing an awesome weekly show with huge screens showing Cartoon Network’s [adult swim] animation with comedy, music, burlesque, fashion shows, a live game show, and comedy bumpers to replace the commercials during the live feed. And there's a even a wading pool for our audience to splash around in... We’ve gotten national press, the endorsement and cooperation of the TV network’s employees and top brass, sponsorship by our local Time Warner Cable outlet and Austin’s coolest businesses, and we’ve had some of the best music and performers from Austin on our stage.

Discography

Dillinger has released 8 CDs in the US and Europe and has toured around the world & done lots of TV & movies.
Matt Bearden has been on MTV's Austin Stories & Comedy Central's Premium Blend, and was voted "Funniest Person in Austin".

Set List

We play anywhere from 35 to 240 minutes of original and cover music. You're as likely to hear an Iggy Pop song as a Willie Nelson song. We like to play "stump the band", although it's embarrassing when there's actually somebody in the club with a stump.

Troy Dillinger has over 45 current "working originals" and occasionally writes one on stage. Styles vary from deconstructed pop to singer/songwriter to filthy country sendups.
