As the dust settles fromSXSW 2010
, we began scouring YouTube for clips of some of our favorite performances. We managed to capture a handful on our own, but the internet video site is awash with stuff we thought we wouldn't see again, including nearly the entire of Courtney Love and Hole's closing set on Friday night at Dirty Dog. Funny enough the guy we were bitching about the entire night being in our cameras way ended up getting some of the best stuff on YouTube. We were happy to also see that someone captured some of Ray Davies' Kinks-heavy set at La Zona Rosa that we stood in place for two hours to catch. It was well worth the early aggravation and irritation of the flatulent British businessman to our right during the show. We did see Houston's Chase Hamblin a few feet away in the crowd looking like he was in heaven watching Davies' unfurl hit after hit. Rocks Off took the first three videos ourselves, and the rest of the collection is the work of the individual uploaders.
Spoon, Dum Dum Girls, Fucked Up, Hole, Ray Davies and more coming up...
