SXSW 2013 – Playlist 2

SXSW2013_2

Following the same path as the earlier playlist – from the country to the garage. The Pollies aren’t listed yet on the official list, but their website says they’ll be in Austin, following up their excellent “Where the Lies Begin” from last year. A Jon Langford show or two, solo or as a Waco Brother, has been a staple every year, and I’m sure this will be no different. This year, touring with his band Skull Orchard. Barcelona’s Mujeres blistered through a great set at Hotel Vegas last year. Seminal punk poet John Cooper Clarke closes out this set with a track from 1980’s “Snap, Carackle & Bop.”

SXSW 2013 - Playlist 1

Miss me?…

Here’s the first batch of songs from acts performing at SXSW this coming March. This will be number 11. Included here are two highlights from last year’s festival – Crooks and East Cameron Folkcore. Both from Austin, both shows at my favorite club in town, The White Horse. Here’s East Cameron Folkcore closing out last year’s festival in satisfying fashion.

The Harmed Brothers – Kickstarter Campaign

I’ve been remiss in posting anything for a while and definitely remiss in posting about The Harmed Brothers and their Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a new album and tour. And now it’s almost too late. The Eugene, Oregon-based band has raised about $2,700 of $5,000 with about a day to go. Their last album, “All The Lies You Wanna Hear,” from 201o, is an excellent – and addictive – collection of emotionally raw, rustic, and raucous songs, further elevated by the wonderful harmonies of Ray Vietti and Alex Salcido. Last year, their set during SXSW, roaming through the crowd at Hole In The Wall during the Hillgrass Bluebilly party, was a highlight of the festival. Just listen to the track below, from “All The Lies You Wanna Hear,” and deny that you don’t need to hear much more of this – or even better, hear it live. Read more and make a contribution here.

SXSW 2012 – Playlist 7

A mix of showcase and unofficial acts. Tom VandenAvond plays the The 5th Annual Hillgrass Bluebilly XSXSW, which is now two days and nights (Friday and Saturday). I’ve included some other acts on previous playlists. Horse Opera, Roger Wallace, and JWW & The Prospectors are all part of the Hoedown at the Highball on Saturday. Definitely some difficult decisions will have to be made… The Far West (who I wrote about here) were at SXSW last year and I missed them. They’re back again, unofficially, and are funding the trip with a Kickstarter campaign. I’ll be sure to catch them at the Sin City Social Club’s 10th Anniversary Bash at Maria’s Taco Xpress on Friday (a day that includes The Record Company – included here – as well as Wagons, Ponderosa, and Deadman who I included on earlier playlists). Full line up here. Looking forward to catching WATERS, the new venture of former Port O’Brien frontman Van Pierszalowski. Mexico City’s Los Headaches start off Thursday evening with their official show at Flamingo Cantina. Also playing the Burgermania party at Spider House on Saturday at 1:00.

SXSW 2012 – Playlist 6

Really, there is nothing here I would not be happy to see. Given venue, time, conflicts… Only a few I have seen before and one high on my list is the country, gospel sound of Deadman. Lauderdale, another excellent band from Muscle Shoals, AL, is also a must see. The slow burning, more haunting, tracks on their 2011 album, “Moving On,” were the first to lodge in my brain, but the more rocking tracks were soon right along side. Still in constant rotation around here. So, go get it. Unfortunately, their FB page only lists a Tuesday show. We don’t arrive until Wednesday… Guns of Navarone and Crooks are both from Austin. Plans are to see both. Sandwiched between the excellent throwback sounds of JD McPherson and Nick Waterhouse is the Austrian band Attwenger – the type of act we seek out at SXSW. They’ve been around since ’91, with 9 albums. They’ve got a few more dates on their US tour around SXSW but this is likely the only opportunity to see them. See why, here.
