SXSW: Maserati at Soho Lounge
So I totally dig these instrumentalists from Athens, Georgia, and based on the crowd last night, I apparently fit right into their target demo. The area in front of the stage was packed with white dudes in their late twenties and early thirties.
The drummer was situated up front and in the middle, with the guitarists in a semi-circle around him. Many of the songs came from 2007's Inventions for the New Season, and they were played faithfully to the album, which was kind of cool but also a little disappointing. I guess I was hoping to hear something new.
I was also expecting a bigger crowd, but it was only Wednesday, and there was plenty scheduled at the midnight hour. Or maybe all the other white dudes had decided to go see Glasvegas instead.
