25 Smokin' Figurados will be hosting a release party for their debut CD, "Divine Spirits, Holy Smoke", an album that is already attracting the attention of fans and cigar aficionados around the world. Reyes Family Cigars and Vegas de Santiago Cigars will sponsor the show.
The band is inviting friends, fans and the press to join them at Habana House Cigars at 6 pm prior to the show for a cigar and celebration. The event will be held at Ruta Maya in Austin on November 6, 2008 at 8 pm. Opening for them will be Message From Space and Worse Than Hippies. There will be a $4 cover charge.
25 Smokin' Figurados, is the culmination of the efforts of singer/songwriter Timothy Abbott and singer/songwriter/instrumentalist Gregg Kirk. Backing them will be Phil Bass on drums, Johnny Big on bass and Bryan Anderton on guitar.
After playing in a number of varied bands in the '90s, songwriting veterans Timothy Abbott and Gregg Kirk grew tired of writing in a single style in a typical band setting and instead opted to open up their songwriting catalog and apply it within a loose-knit group of musicians known as 25 Smokin' Figurados. Their songs - "which breathe with Midwestern angst, urban depravity, and Texas heat -- are meant to be played at maximum volume and savored... like a fine figurado."
