WANARB @ SXSW (Part 2)


Yesterday was a great day … I met a death metal cello band from New York and The Invisible, got a lift downtown with a guy called Alvaro, his chica and their dog, caught a ride back up town at 3am with a lesbian in a pick up truck. Not to mention The Coolness playing a storming set to over 250 people, hanging out with Doll and The Kicks, lending Laurel Collective a keyboard and chatting sync deals with Asteriods Galaxy Tour‘s Manager.

If this festival could run every day of the year the world would be a better place and some of the crap that the music industry suffers would be overcome … thats quite philosophical for me at 10.30am. Maybe I should go check out some lectures today.

Visually arresting three piece The Invisible play funky bass and wall of guitar distortion plus drums and a korg synth, they are producing really fresh and unique sounds. They have been credited with a Mercury Music Prize Nomintion, but there is definitely more to them than that.

Danish band Asteroids Galaxy Tour played SXSW for the second year running and held the crowd with an energetic performance and a pretty frontwoman backed up with a 70’s disco sound and trumpets. Good times!

Artists playing today (Thursday) who have caught my eye : The Toxic Avenger, The Walkmen, MEN, The XX, Computer Club, Hot Pink Delorean and Holy Fuck. Oh and a film about bears and a talk by Feargal Sharkey could be interesting … + i will be searching for more shows to play
