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.

'Live from Opa!' now available on iTunes! 

Click here to buy 'Live from Opa!' today!

Mandy recorded 'Live from Opa!' in the Summer of 2011 and released it at long last in December of 2013. For those of you not familiar, Opa is a fantastically comfy and unique Greek wine bar in the heart of Austin's South Lamar district, and not only does Mandy play many a lovely show there, some days it's practically her living room, office, and backyard all at the same time. Biggest of thanks to Jackie and Spiro and the entire crazy Opa family for giving Mandy a second home and welcoming all her creative enterprises. Opa is truly one of a kind, and this album is a snapshot of a gorgeous rainy Austin summer night there.

Mandy is accompanied on the album by longtime friend Barry Sell on guitar and the talented and awesome Tanya Winch on harmonies and shakers. 

Hope you enjoy it, and as we like to say (at the top of our lungs) "OPA!".
