SXSW Music: Day 1
The time is here. SXSW 2010.
I am going to be out there full-force absorbing all I possibly can.
Here are some of my picks for Wednesday:
First, I'm going to try to catch The Walkmen, one of my favorites, play at the IFC House on 7th & Brazos. If I don't make that, I can still catch them at the solid NPR showcase at Stubbs at 8:45.
Other daytime picks:
Toro Y Moi at the Mohawk @ 1:15.
Japandroids at Emo's @ 2:15 or Warpaint at Mohawk @ 2. But, there will be plenty of time to catch both of these bands, because they are playing tons.
At 3pm I could head over to The Galaxy Room to see Freelance Whales.
Then, We Were Promised Jetpacks over at the Fader Fort @ 3:45.
If I can tear myself away from the Fader Fort, I'll check out The Besnard Lakes (4:20) and Phantogram (4:45) @ the Mohawk.
5pm: Frightened Rabbit at The Galaxy Room or Choir of Young Believers @ the Pure Volume House.
6pm: Freelance Whales @ the Fort or Tribella @ Shakespeare's.
At 8:45, I will travel to Stubbs to check out The Walkmen (again).
9pm: Here We Go Magic at Club DeVille.
10pm: Fanfarlo at The Galaxy Room.
11pm: Broken Bells @ Stubb's, Bowerbirds @ Club DeVille or We Were Promised Jetpacks @ The Parish.
12am: Califone @ Club DeVille, Warpaint @ Emo's, Frightened Rabbit @ the Parish or Spoon @ Stubb's.
1am: Sixteen Deluxe @ Encore, Surfer Blood @ Wave Rooftop or the Morning Benders @ Emo's.
I would also like to stop by the Fleadh St. Patrick's Day Party @ the old Fader Fort location for some traditionally poured Guinness on draft.
Also, The British Music Biz parties at Latitude 30 on San Jacinto are always fun.
