The Early Republic Sells Out House of Blues Dallas' Pontiac Garage

Press release from: Maverick Music Management

Dallas, TX -- The Early Republic’s February 13, 2009 album release concert, at the Dallas House of Blues’ Pontiac Garage, is officially Sold Out. Support bands include Mother’s Anthem (Austin, TX), Designing Me (Dallas, TX) & Eimi Hall (Dallas, TX). Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with Eimi Hall kicking things off at 8:15 p.m. The Early Republic plays at midnight. House of Blues is located at 200 N. Lamar Street, Dallas, Texas 75202.

The Early Republic’s self-titled, full-length debut album will be available at live shows starting February 10, 2009 and online at all major digital retailers very soon. The album features the hit single “Rescue Me” which, according to Dallas’ KVRK 89.7 “Power FM”, became the “most requested song” in the history of their Monday night All Request Show, after only one day on the station’s play list. “There’s something very exciting about The Early Republic and the station is excited to play a part in their success.” said Power FM weekday afternoon jock and Music Director Drue Mitchell.

If anyone might question the buzz on this relatively new band, they needn’t look further than the band’s upcoming concert at House of Blues. “The Early Republic has such an enthusiastic and dedicated fan base that, more than 1 week prior to show time, the 400 seat venue was officially SOLD OUT.” said the band’s manager Jason Wheelington of Maverick Music Management. “Quite frankly, as strong as pre-sales were, and with this being our first show there, we think the whole thing took the House of Blues staff by surprise.” Wheelington goes on to say, “Fans planning to walk up and get tickets the night of the show need to be forewarned. There are no tickets to be found anywhere. But fear not, we are already in negotiations w/ Live Nation talent buyers to schedule another show at House of Blues Dallas, sometime within the next few months, to satisfy fans that didn’t get a ticket to this show.”

Fans without tickets wishing to see the band perform this week, can still do so early this Wednesday morning (February 11, 2009) on KTXA 21’s “Daily Buzz” w/ Rance Adams and on Friday morning (February 13, 2009) at 8:50 a.m. live on KDFW Fox 4’s “Good Day”. Replays of the band’s KTXA 21 appearance can be found online now at www.KTXA.com.

The Early Republic and Maverick Music Management have also arranged to give away a free guitar at the upcoming February 13th concert. Free tickets, for the drawing, will be handed out at the door to concert-goers upon arrival. The drawing will take place during The Early Republic‘s performance. The holder of the selected ticket must be present to win and will be immediately awarded the guitar onstage.

About The Early Republic
Hailing from Dallas, TX this five-some cites a wide array of classic musical influences such as The Cure, Led Zeppelin & The Beatles, as well as current indie pop favorites The Bravery, Muse, Snow Patrol and The Killers. Originally formed in 2006, under a different band name, brothers Dave & Ismael Martinez, along with Tony Gonzalez, rounded out the line-up with Zane Latta & Oscar Robles through mutual friends. The Early Republic routinely supports major label artists, as well as regional favorites such as Odis, Radiant and The Campaign at all of D/FW's premier live venues. Look for The Early Republic to break new markets, in the Southwest, and continue winning over new audiences throughout 2009.

The Dallas-based artist management company began representing D/FW area musicians in 2008. M3’s founder & principle partner Jason Wheelington has been in trenches of the independent record business, wearing many hats, for nearly two decades. Wheelington’s experience in artist management comes via his prior success, in the music industry, while fronting the independent Dallas rock band Supercell; who was recognized by Budweiser’s True Music program. Supercell also received major market Commercial Radio airplay and shared stages internationally with alternative rock luminaries such as Billy Idol, Evanescence, Seether, Fuel, Hoobastank and more. Supercell also received placement in feature films, DVD Releases and other marketing campaigns. In 2006, Wheelington was in close consideration as a replacement for departed Fuel (Epic Records) singer, Brett Scallions. Wheelington currently resides in Arlington, TX with his wife and two children.
