BOOHER Celebrates Vinyl Release at Cheer Up Charlies Saturday

Mixing vulnerable lyricism with big rock musicianship and careful flourishes, BOOHER makes songs that are immediately likable and yield greater nuance with repeat listens. Behind the music is Michael Booher, who’s been making music in Austin since the turn of the millennia, most notably with his band Zykos. Booher has shared the stage with plenty of Austin mainstay bands such as Okkervil River and What Made Milwaukee Famous. So, it’s fitting that members of those bands, Will Sheff and Michael Kingcaid, will join Booher for the release of a special vinyl edition of the band’s debut, Funny Tears, at Cheer Up Charlies on Saturday. The album has been out since this March on Old Flame Records, but the vinyl edition promises two bonus tracks with the new format. Funny Tears was produced by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead) and features contributions from Will Sheff, Michael Kingcaid, and Mike St. Clair (Polyphonic Spree). The show at Cheer Up Charlies tomorrow will be supported by Whalers, Corvette Summer, Bryce Clifford and Brother Superior. Tickets are just $5 at the doors, so show up early and see one Austin’s longstanding musical stalwarts celebrate a new vinyl release. Stream “Pick Up The Robot (Put Down the Robot)” from Funny Tears below, and check out more music from the band here.
