Description

The members of Blaggards, a band that's been together for over 15 years with a fan base that spans the globe, share their experiences and occasionally chat with guests.
"The official podcast of all things Blaggards. Found on all major pod platforms and delivered weekly, it’s a behind-the-music view of the band, with tidbits for new fans (it’s just Blaggards, not The Blaggards, newbs) and cool stuff for longtime followers (Episode 5 discusses how the band’s music has been used in films like How to Be Single and TV shows like The Good Wife). Its engaging hosts are smart and funny. An interesting aside is the podcast also offers occasional glimpses back at Houston’s music community." — Jesse Sendejas, Houston Press

Eleven years ago, Blaggards embarked on a nine-date tour through the Midwest with no drummer... and yet somehow wound up with three drummers. This ultimately leads to a discussion of how this band, like every other band that ever existed, has always been a delicate balance of personalities, talents, and temperaments.
