Old Man Markley release Party Shack today! The title track is quintessential OLD MAN MARKLEY in both name and content. Lightning fast banjo, violin, and guitars play off sweet harmonies about drunken revelry, perfectly summing up an OMM live performance. The b-side is an interpretation of the One Man Army classic “The Holidays”, buy it digitally, and on vinyl. We have the title track available on our media player, check it out, or head over to our sound cloud. Peta has just posted a new interview and contest to win Party Shack, check it out here. To keep the party going if you will, we are happy to announce an upcoming “New Years Heave” show with NOFX, Lagwagon, OMM and a special guest at the House of Blues in Las Vegas. Check the details here. Tickets will be on sale Sept 23rd.
The Fest, held each year in Gainesville, FL is celebrating its 10th year!

Once these 10”s are gone, that’s it. This is a Fest only item! All the Fat bands performing will have a limited amount at their merch booth (Cobra Skulls, Smoke or Fire, Dead To Me, Banner Pilot, Teenage Bottlerocket, None More Black, Paint It Black, The Flatliners, Old Man Markley and Dillinger Four). Additionally, for the first time ever, we’ll have a table set up at the flea market. The Flea market is held at the Holiday Inn where you check in, and we’ll be there on Friday only.
