Doug and Telisha Willams are at it again. All the way from East Nashville, Wild Ponies are one of our favorite bands at the Wyldwood and we've invited them back after just appearing here last season. It was a CD release celebration for Things That Used To Shine that brought them to our deck last year and wow! everyone raved about them. They bring incredibly high energy to their performance, but still they keep it intimate, sincere and thoughtful. We had the good fortune to catch them again last SXSW just as we were booking our year and decided they had to come back. We're sooo looking forward to this show. Bring your family and friends. We'll see you here! _
The Wild Ponies are sold out, but we've started a waiting list. Maybe, just maybe...

But WHY? We love having so many people love the Wyldwood, but let's face it, we're just a modest home in the burbs. And lately we've gotten a lot of attention. It was nine years ago when we started bringing musicians out to play for our friends and neighbors and over the years, word kind of spread. And we like all that. But we have come to recognize that in order for everyone to have a good time, with good seats, and good sound, and to be safe, and to have a line for the bathroom that isn't really long, we need to keep the number of friends to a reasonable size. Unfortunately, this means that realistically we can't grow our invitation list. In fact, it's too big as it is. (I know that sounds odd, but trust me, it is.) And so with a heavy heart we have stopped adding to the invitation list. What can you do? Well, it's probably not the easiest solution, but you can do what we did nine years and start hosting your own back yard or living room shows. Or better yet, talk your neighbor into it and just help out! There are lots of very talented musicians in Austin who enjoy the intimate setting and the opportunity to play for a music loving crowd. Try it out - you just might love it! Cheers to all of Austin! We love you! And if you don't mind, send us an invitation to your first house concert.
