Last week we headed to Austin, TX for a few days of SXSW...Call it an early Spring Break. We saw & heard a ton of new music, saw old friends and met new ones! Below are some snaps from the mix along with some words from a couple great days...LINKS below will lead you to lots of great music...so CLICK THEM!
6th St. in Austin is where it all started...and it continues to be at the center of the festivities...You should have seen this place on Saturday at 3am...
First things first...Grab a Lone Star Beer at the Scott Inn and check out whats going on at the Thrasher party...
King Tuff played a special set at the temporary Rubber Tracks studio...A guaranteed great time. LISTEN TO KING TUFF
Earl Sweatshirt had everyone hyped and performed a short and sweet set on Wednesday night... LISTEN TO EARL
It's important to know when to sit down and re-charge...Not a problem when a cool down beer is within an arms reach.
Our buddies, The Dirty Fences, know how to rock...and park! They had front row seats for the stage across the street in between their double bookings on Thursday... LISTEN TO THE DIRTY FENCES
We caught THEE OH SEES on the second of their back to back sets on Friday. They weren't tired. LISTEN TO THEE OH SEES
Hunters is a post-punk band from New York...They really kicked some ass on stage! LISTEN TO HUNTERS
We caught this band Skaters during their last show of South by Southwest at the W Hotel NYLON. The crowd was fancy and people were into it...Plan on hearing from these guys a bit more down the line... LISTEN TO SKATERS
Around 1am Friday Morning word spread that some bands would be playing on a pedestrian bridge on the south side of downtown...We walked a good walk until finding ourselves on a bridge in the middle of a moshing crowd with Parquet Courts ...worth it! LISTEN TO PARQUET COURTS
A few other acts that left us wanting more...
