On their last USA tour in 2010, The Good The Bad embellished their affiliation with the Jail Guitar Doors charity (having previously appeared on the soundtrack of the charity’s ‘Breaking Rocks’ documentary), as the band played alongside Billy Bragg, Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) and Wayne Kramer (MC5) at the Strummerville/Jail Guitar Doors showcase.

Upon seeing them for first time, Wayne Kramer described The Good The Bad as “an incredible new band” and both are now delighted to announce they’ll be joining forces and locking axes together at Roky Erickson’s Ice Cream Social 10th Anniversary show at Threadgills, Friday 16th March.

Later that evening, Wayne Kramer will lead the charge at the Jail Guitar Doors official showcase at the Swan Dive with Tom Morello and other special guests. Jail Guitar Doors is a non-profit program that provides musical instruments and opportunities to help rehabilitate prisoners.

As well as Roky Erickson’s showcase and their official showcase at Headhunters on Wednesday 14th March, The Good The Bad will play several other shows, kicking off proceedings at Guero’s Taco bar (location of the opening scene of Tarantino’s Death Proof), continuing with Austin Psych Fest’s gigathon at the Spiderhouse and culminating in the secretive House of Songs project at a mysterious mansion in an undisclosed location within the city limits.
