Reviews: SXSW Part 3 (Saturday 3/20)

Yep, Saturday was so jam-packed full of action that it gets its very own recap.  And with this, we’ve come to the end of my SXSW recaps – and only 5 days after the fest ended!  But don’t worry, the Docubloggers/AGMG/ME-TV SXSW Special is still coming… 1:30 pm – Rachael Ray’s Feedback Party at Stubb’s [Continue]

Reviews: SXSW Part 1 (Tuesday 3/16 and Wednesday 3/17)

Because I was working during SXSW, I didn’t make it to quite as many showcases as I would have liked.  Still, I saw quite a few bands and attended a bunch of parties during the week and I thought the easiest way to handle reviewing everything would be in time order. I’ll be dividing the [Continue]

SXSW Interviews: Bright Light Social Hour, Venice is Sinking, Quiet Company

Just last Wednesday (seriously?  It feels like a million years ago…), I got to meet Curtis, Jack, and A.J. from the Austin buzz band Bright Light Social Hour.  They are all super-nice guys who seem genuinely grateful for all the attention they’re getting in Austin. It was extra tricky interviewing a huge band like [Continue]

SXSW Exclusive: Venice is Sinking Performances

The Athens band Venice is Sinking came by our studio last Thursday to record a couple of “stripped-down” performances.  I put that in quotations because it’s hard to say that a performance is stripped down if it involves horns, but no matter -  when we saw piece after piece of gear being hauled up the [Continue]

SXSW Exclusive: Quiet Company Acoustic Performance

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting the members of the Austin band Quiet Company.  When we told their manager Paul that we could really only accommodate a stripped-down performance, we had no idea what to expect when he said that they would work something out.  From the second the giant L O V E [Continue]

SXSW Obsession Part 4: My Interview with Little Black Dress

When I got the assignment from Spinner to interview Little Black Dress, a band from Dallas, I’d never heard of them before.  A few days later, when I started to do my research for the interview, I googled lead singer Toby Pipes‘ name.  I had no idea what I would find – so imagine my [Continue]

SXSW Obsession Part 3: My Interview with Brazos

A few weeks ago, I met with Martin Crane, lead singer of local indie band Brazos, for an interview at Spider House as part of the SXSW Spinner project.  You can read the published article here: SXSW 2010: Brazos. Crane’s a pretty soft-spoken and kind of shy person, and obviously cares deeply about the music [Continue]

Hi everyone!  Before I start posting the second part of my “SXSW Obsession,” I just had to boast about this image.  How sweet is that?!

SXSW Obsession Part 1: Wednesday and Thursday Music Showcases

Hi everyone!  It’s time to start the barrage of posts about SXSW!  I apologize if you’re not planning on attending SXSW, because that and NX35 (if you missed it, you can read my NX35 band recommendations here and here) are basically all I’m going to be talking about for the next three weeks easily. Here’s [Continue]
