Tonight, the rabscallions known 'round town as the Boys Named Sue will stop on by Sons of Hermann Hall--with The King Bucks in tow--to host a CD release party in celebration of the Sues' latest release, The Hits, Vol. Sue!

The new disc, released on Idol Records, is classic Sues--which is to say, it's good-time party music. Which is to say, it's a collection of drinking tunes. Which bodes well for tonight's event, I'd think, which kicks off at 8 p.m.

After the jump, a free mp3 from the Sues to whet your appetite for both tonight's show and the new disc. In the coming weeks, expect a review in the print product, but for now, jump with us and check out the second track on the new album, "Light Beers Away."

Bonus mp3:

Boys Named Sue -- "Light Beers Away"

Might sound goofy on the first few listens--gotta figure the band was going for theat with the whole deep-voiced chorus that immediately sets the tone for the song at its start--but, incredibly catchy two. Give the song two listens and you'll be humming it for two hours.

Basically: Don't say I didn't warn you.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
