Get Ready for Ugly Whale #2!

Ugly Whale Fest #2 is Thursday March 16 at Darwin’s Pub!  We’re excited to have the same venue as last year since Darwin’s has a great stage, a  strategic location in the middle of buzzing 6th Street, and an awesome staff.  Personally I feel like Darwin’s has become home to Ugly Whale and plan to hold showcases there every year if I can.

I am proud to announce an extremely talented line-up featuring Bay Area favorites DangermakerEyes on the Shore, The Go AheadCitabria, and Sit Kitty Sit!  We can’t wait to rock Darwin’s on St. Patrick’s Day, showing the music hungry Austin audience what amazing artists the Bay Area has!

Please RSVP on, Eventbrite, and/or Facebook to let us know you’re coming!
