Like cowboys? Like whisky? Then you need to be at Brent Amaker and the Rodeo’s Noise for the Needy show Saturday night

Brent Amaker and the Rodeo

As mentioned earlier this week, Ear Candy will be spending part of Saturday night at the Comet Tavern to see The Valley, which is one of the loudest bands in Seattle, and Brent Amaker and the Rodeo, which is one of the more badass bands in Seattle. Ear Candy thinks you should be there too and here’s why (aside from the amazing spectacle that is a whiskey baptism and a go-go dancer):

A cowboy costume contest

That’s right, at the show those crazy cowboys dressed in black know collectively as B.A.R. will be having a costume contest. None other than Brent Amaker himself wrote me a note explaining the night’s events. Here’s what’s going down straight from the man himself:

During our last show at the High Dive, a group of “super fans” (calling themselves the B.A.R. Brigade) showed up with cap guns wearing masks and cowboy hats. They spent the whole show up front shooting guns and raising hell. The leader of the group (Kitchen Dick Jones) contacted me following the show and expressed his interest in making his fan club the next “Kiss Army”. I had to admit that it was pretty cool having a bunch of cowboys wearing masks at our show, so I offered to host a costume contest for our Noise for the Needy appearance. It’s going to be a costume contest that anyone can participate in, but it is also a photo contest open to the public. We will be giving out Rodeo CD’s, T’s, and other swag to the best costume and the best photo following the event. For those less prepared, Kitchen Dick Jones will be at the event with masks and cap guys available in exchange for a small donation.

We set up a flickr page and you can get directions for the photo contest here.
