SXSW 2011_3

The scouring of the SXSW listings has begun. It’s a great evening waster – and great way to discover a few treasures. Somehow the Caleb Coy tracks I purchased a while back were forgotten about. That was a mistake and now I’m eager to see him in Austin. A trio of Spanish speaking bands, Mujeres from Barcelona, and two bands from Mexico, Los Explosivos and Los Negretes are all new to me and since I’ve been liking my garage Spanish lately (Wau Y Los Arrrghs!! and Los Peyotes in particular) these will hit the spot nicely. The Mind Spiders are great – and new to me, too. This is from their excellent ep released last year. Their debut album filled with more power-pop-punk just came out on Dirtnap Records. The first band we saw last year was French band The Bewitched Hands, then called the more cumbersome Bewitched Hands On Top Of Our Heads. After stashing our bags and grabbing our badges, we caught their 4:30 non-showcase set at a bar on 6th near the hotel. My notes from that trip described the band as “quirky, with moments of Roxy Music, some beautiful passages – and an occasionally really annoying co-lead singer.” It was a great first hit/first beers of the festival, despite the fact that the club smelled vaguely of vomit. Or, The Whale, Drag The River, The Growlers, and especially Otis Gibbs are all on my growing short list.
