My SXSW 2014 – Bands/Sets Seen

As always, my standard for having “seen” a band/set is 2 full songs or 10 minutes, whichever is shorter. The point being to give a band a somewhat fair chance before bailing, if needed. Though truthfully the majority of these were full sets (or nearly so). A total of 86, thanks to a 30-band day on Saturday.

A handful of duplicates in here (Diarrhea Planet, Together Pangea, The Blind Shake). Duplicates counted toward the total.

VIDEO: Leatherbag, “Teenage Creeps”

If you’re headed to Austin for SXSW, there are two local Austin bands that you absolutely must catch while you’re there. (Well, to be honest, there’s a ton of great Austin bands you should catch, but these happen to be my favorites.) First, obviously, Quiet Company, who I rave about here and on Twitter constantly. And second, Leatherbag, who put out *two* of my favorite records last year.

For proof on the latter, check out their new video for the tune “Teenage Creeps” below. I’ll be posting show/set times for both of these bands as it gets closer to SXSW. You won’t want to miss them.

SXSW: Trouble in Mind Day Party

Another fantastic day party, this time from Chicago’s Trouble in Mind label. I’m particularly excited for the chance to see San Francisco’s The Wrong Words again. I saw them play out in L.A. when I was there for FYF Fest this past September, and I’ve been waiting for a chance to see them again. Also, you can’t go wrong with Mean Jeans, though I suspect their Saturday night set during the Dirtnap Records showcase will be more of a drunken mess (in a good way).

Saturday March 17th
Trailer Space Records
1401 Rosewood Ave.
Austin, Tx

12-12:30 : Hex Dispensers
12:45-1:15: Wheels On Fire
1:30-2:00 : The Mean Jeans
2:15-2:45 : The Wrong Words
3:00-3:30 : The Resonars
3:45-4:15 : Mikal Cronin
4:45-5:15 : Apache Dropout
5:30-6:00 : Night Beats

SXSW: Ground Control Touring

I’ve fallen behind on my SXSW posting. I haven’t even started putting my own SXSW schedule together yet. I am way, way behind. These are some solid shows, though, and I’m gonna have to try to fit them in if I can.
