    WHY?, The Black and a nice surprise back at the hotel

    Things started off on a bad note today (Get it? Music festival... notes... bad... nevermind) thanks to an '80s hair band I think was called Mella's Mattice. It was hard to make out the name, as I was too busy trying to chug a free beer and get the he...

    SXSW Street Art

    Austin is covered in flyers and bills this week. Cops and cleaners come by every morning and tear down all the crap from the walls and light poles, and street teamers roll back by in the afternoon and put the stuff back up. But this week is also a c...

    Crap, Did I Peak Too Early?

    So about a week ago, former Press columnist and Fatal Flying Guilloteens guitarist Brian McManus tipped me off about a band called Monotonix. "They're like the Israeli Gogol Bordello" were his exact words. Sounded pretty good to me. So we headed int...

    Random pics from the streets of SXSW

    "I missed Motorhead and all I got was this lousy weird-ass iron claw." This guy came up to me and asked me when Napalm Death played. Do I look like I like Napalm Death? (Sorta): Daily Random Japanese Band Post: Ten Dollars says these dudes are in...

    SXSW: Moby on Sixth Street

    So we're walking down Sixth when Craig Hlavaty says, "Hey, there's Moby." Real funny, I think, expecting to see some random dude with a shaved head and fat glasses. After all, it's not like the guy has a real original look. Hell, I look like Moby...

    SXSW Ephemera: Random Notes from the Field

    Can't find a hotel room? Maybe these people will let you crash on their bus in front of Emo's. Let's dish about Lou Reed for a minute. He didn't show up to join Roky Erickson and Okkervil River at the Austin Music Awards last night, as was rumored,...

    SXSW Last Night: Houston Hijacks the Austin Music Awards

    Ladies and gentlemen... the Judy's! Since the '60s (at least), the Houston and Austin music scenes have had a thorny relationship too complicated to go into here, but in basic terms, Houston has traditionally provided the raw material and Austin th...

    Kaki King does NOT live up to the Hungarian translation of her name

    Kaki King lived up to all expectations. The pint-sized songstress and her band led the audience through a live set Wednesday night that was as flawless as their recordings. Live versions of King's latest hits "Pull Me Out Alive" and "2 O'clock" rang ...

    Overheard at SXSW

    "I feel like I'm at Lollapalooza or something." "I looked up and there were all these pirates." "Hey, we're from Seattle. Where are the whores at?" "I've always just called it 'Death Metal Pizza.'" "Oh good. A banjo." -- Keith Plocek

    SXSW: Percee P at Habana Annex Backyard

    Attending hip hop shows can be a real drag, no matter if it's SXSW or not. You got the over zealous DJ warming up the stage, playing the standards. You have the hype men, who come out and attempt to work up the crowd with the same old call and respon...

    SXSW: Mala Rodriguez at SESAC Day Stage Cafe

    Maybe it's the steady diet of the Geto Boys I was raised on, or maybe it's that my Spanish is pretty shabby these days, and I don't speak any other languages. But I've never been able to digest hip-hop in other languages very well. Even the phonetica...

    SXSW: Guitar Shorty and Kimya Dawson

    Two free parties on South Congress this afternoon presented a study in opposites. Down at Yard Dog Gallery, Guitar Shorty tore it up, searing through the blues, all with a half-crazed, white-toothed grin on his face. Dude even played with those te...

    SXSW Extra: What's In My Pockets?

    Good thing I didn't wear my skinny jeans... I've never been a big fan of the SXSW tote bags, decorated though they are by noted artists like Mike Judge and Daniel Johnston. I think they scream "tourist," and save the odd lighter or notepad, there's...

    Wednesday Night SXSW plans: Saul Williams and Lick Lick

    After a 20-minute power nap I'm heading out to let poet/hip-hopper Saul Williams get my blood flowing and my mind exploding. If you didn't catch Williams when he was on tour with At the Drive-In or Mars Volta, then I suggest joining Lunchbox and me a...

    Do See Headlights at SXSW, Don't See YACHT

    Do: Check out Headlights if you're into jangly, upbeat, keyboard-infused rock. I'd heard about this Illinois quintet but had never heard them until today. They live up to all the compliments; lovely female vocals with a Feist(y) feel are complimented...
