“Sam’s took a chance booking us, and we had a great show with about 60 people,” said Tadros. “I think it took some convincing that we could bring a crowd, but everyone on staff was a breeze to work with. Nicest sound guy out there, and they even let us store a bunch of gear there overnight since we had to hit the road the next day.”

Both Tadros and Little Brave (former SA and New Braunfels residents, respectively) moved on, Tadros to Brooklyn and Little Brave to Austin. But they tour often, and those early Sam’s gigs were key in their development as performers.

“It’s a big room and I can see why it could be intimidating for certain acts,” said Tadros. “But the sound is amazing and it would be so much fun to pack that place. Hope to get there one day myself.”

So Sam’s is there, guys — just go for it, and follow up.

“Right now we have holes in September,” said Christensen. “We try to reply to all emails, but we get so many of them that sometimes they fall through the cracks. As I always tell the bands, ‘Don’t ever think you can bug me with an email too much.’”
