Hey Martian Maniacs, we wanted to let you know we are still rockin. We’ve been playing gigs around Austin and out of town but we’re heading back to Red Eyed Fly on Feb. 16th to celebrate Tony and Space Viking Erik’s respective birthdays (before and after the 16th) it is going to RAGE!! We’ll have more details very soon!

We’re also building on our Martian empire with new tunes in the works as well as mapping our plan to dominate the Earth starting with Texas. As we travel outside of Austin and beyond the galaxy, be sure to check here as well as our more immediate feeds Deserts of Mars Facebook page and on Twitter. Tell your friends across the Universe!!! You’ll never miss an event if you follow us there!

Rock on!!

Since Billy left to teach his daughter how to fight Rocktopi, we had to wait for the Curiosity Rover to do it’s real mission and find us a drummer. We’ve found the mighty Space Viking Erik Kinservik who thundered his way to our Martian home base and is now rocking the drums in DoM.

We’re playing November 23rd at Red Eyed Fly (our home base away from the home base) with an awesome lineup of bands!! Details Below:

Deserts of Mars returns from their home base with a new drummer and more rock than ever! Forget Black Friday… We’re turning it to the new post holiday: RED FRIDAY!

As usual get there directly on time and stick around for an awesome night of ROCK. Our friends Holy Ka-Kow rock the headlining slot and we are surrounded by new friends Wait Six and Wells Branch. Roll out of bed in the afternoon and start your weekend with a healthy dose of ROCK!

It’s also Megan of Holy Ka-Kow’s B-day! Come early and stay late for awesomeness!!

Come early and stay late… There’s free parking and the show is inside, so you can get out of the cold, into hot Rock and raise a drink (and your fists) high! All the details:
