Before kicking off a national tour next month in support of their forthcoming LP A Beautiful Life, Heartless Bastards is keepin’ it local with a series of Friday and Saturday shows at C-Boys Heart and Soul and The Continental Club, respectively, two beloved ATX hotspots which just happen to be conveniently located within a few blocks of each other on S. Congress Ave.

The next shows coming up this week: Heartless Bastards shares the bill with Calder Allen at C-Boys on Friday, Aug. 13; then checks in with Spaceflight Records artist Buffalo Hunt for an early gig on Saturday, Aug. 14, at The Continental Club, followed by late night jams courtesy of eternal badass Sue Foley.

Joseph M joins Heartless Bastards’ C-Boys show Friday Aug. 20, while Buffalo Nichols is the special guest Saturday Aug. 21; Little Mazarn is on the C-Boys bill Friday Aug. 27, and The Ghost Wolves ignite The Continental Club with the ‘Bastards on Saturday Aug. 28.

*Masks are strongly encouraged for each of these shows.
