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 5: Parties/Unofficial Showcases

Alright folks, this is it…the last of my SXSW Obsession posts!  So, I was going to go through the work of finding all the party posters, the RSVP websites, etc, etc, for this post, but then I realized something.  There are a hundred websites collecting that information already, who have been doing it for weeks [Continue]

SXSW Obsession Part 4: My Interview with Little Black Dress

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]
