Summer Happenings! 

Hey folks, happy second day of Summer! I've got lots of cool stuff on my plate right now and I'm happy to share it with you all. 

First off, the band and I are hitting the stage this Saturday night at 8pm at the Saxon Pub and we'd love to have you there! The guys are sounding better than ever and I'm really proud of these new tunes we've worked up. We're getting ready to hit the studio for a new album and we're having all kinds of fun. Here's a link to the Facebook event....kudos for sharing it with your friends! 

Thanks so much to everyone who came out last weekend for our Flood Relief Show! I was joined onstage by the awesome J.J. Plasencio of Sixpence None The Richer and between cover charges, tip donations, and the silent auction we were able to raise almost $3,000 for the Barnabas Connection to keep helping Wimberley rebuild! It's not too late to donate to them so check out the link.

As most of you know, I also teach Girl Guitar, a comprehensive women's guitar/band/songwriting/wine drinking school in Austin, and new classes are starting next week! If you're a cool lady over 21 who wants to rock out with other cool ladies, check out the website and give me a shout! There are still a few spots open and we'd love to get to know you better.

On top of all that, I'm gearing up to hit the road again this summer and can't wait to see some of you out there. All tour dates are posted on my Tour Page, so if you're in Port Aransas, Dallas, Fort Worth, Oklahoma City, Kansas City, Laramie, Jackson, or just about anywhere in Montana, I'm coming at you soon! Stay tuned later this year for Nashville, New Orleans, West Texas, California, and Nevada. 

All the love to you folks....see you out there soon!

'These Bad Habits' is available and being played around the US and Europe!  

All the time, money, heartbreaks, life lessons, growing up, and loving are paying off in a tangible way....Mandy is in the middle of a successful US tour and 'These Bad Habits', her brand new album, is getting radio play all around the country and in Canada and Europe! Mandy's spring tour includes Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Nevada, California, and New Mexico, and later this summer she'll be spending extensive time in Nashville and touring the East Coast.

You can buy 'These Bad Habits', as well as her older albums 'Live From Opa!' and 'Big Moon' on her website or on iTunes. Stay tuned for more dates to be added to Mandy's 2015 tour calendar and join her mailing list if you haven't already!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.... 

...so let's have a Christmas Show! I'll be joined by lots of my goofy and wickedly talented friends at the Saxon Pub, one of my all-time favorite South Austin clubs. I haven't actually found out yet if it's ok or not, but there might be some potluck and grown-up hot chocolate happening. Wear something ridiculously holdayish and come get cozy with us! 

Mandy and Friends in Kansas City! 

My name is Mandy and I have Friends, and sometimes my friends and I play music together. However, this time is special because we're going all the way to Kansas City to do it! The Czar Bar is a great spot for live music and we'll be partnering with some new friends from KC to bring y'all the most wickedly awesome Monday night ever.  The bill includes Charlie Mason, Duncan Hill, The Potholder, Mikal Shapiro, Dan Bliss, and Mark Smeltzer and Kris Bruders from Freight Train Rabbit Killer. See you there!

Concert Window shows are actually really fun! I wasn't sure at first.  

When I first got invited to perform on this new online venue I was skeptical, but hey, I'm skeptical in general, so then combine that with being really really lazy and you get Mandy Rowden being "skeptazy". So I skeptazily agreed and fully planned to cancel it until about 5 hours before the show when all of the sudden people started buying tickets and I realized Facebook people CAN read, and they used that skill on MY post! I became slightly "hoptical", which is a more hopeful version of where I started. Fast forward to showtime and a delicious cocktail I whipped up and bam! I'm online and can see my goofy face and people are typing requests, smartass comments, and my favorite "clap clap clap!!" (Side note: when typing your applause, the exclamation points are really where it's at; otherwise I can't tell if you're "slow clapping", "golf clapping", or worse,  "sarcastic clapping", none of which anybody really wants after pouring their heart out in song. Let's have some enthusiasm here!). I played songs, I told stories, I ran my mouth, I "met" some nice folks who bought my CDs and said nice things, I took my first selfie, I wore lipstick. After it was over I was sad but I had a few new "frans" (friends who like my music) and a new story and an excuse to mashup new words. Also, I had a lot more money than I started with, which without fail, makes this chick with the thumbs a happy, thumb-having musician chick. 

I know, I know, "MANDY, WHAT'S THE POINT??" The point is, I'm doing it again and I want to "see" you. I want to tell YOU stories, I want YOU to know I'm still mad at some ex-boyfriend and here's a song about it. I want to wear lipstick for YOU. I want to do all these things on August 30th at 5:30CST. You can connect at the link below, and I super hope, or "sope" that you will.
