Rorschach at The Charleston (more by Ryan Muir)

Last year's jaw-dropping lineup at Chaos In Tejas was sick, and 2010 is proving to be no different. For four days across four different Austin venues, May 27th to the 30th at Emo's, Mohawk, Red 7 and Beerland, the festival will offer some of the most impressive names in the independent/underground scene including the indestructible Rorschach, the first ever US appearance from Australian punk greats X, a one-time reunion of Japanese crust-core band Bastard, the quirky cutesy indie pop-punk of Grass Widow, Gehenna (who just played A389), Subhumans, Bastard Noise (who have a new record), Bone Awl, BV faves Jeff The Brotherhood, The Spits, Psychedelic Horseshit, Ty Segall, The Ponys, Iron Lung (who recently played Cake Shop), Poison Idea, Inquisition, and many many many others.

In addition to the obvious mayhem that will ensue over the four days, Chaos in Tejas will also showcase art from some of the scene's most interesting names including Tim Kerr (of Big Boys), Winston Smith (responsible for tons of collage work, including the Dead Kennedys best album art), and Bryan Ray Turcotte (best known for his book Fucked Up and Photocopied).

The full (and intimidating) list is below...

Every time I see Inquisition listed I get so excited for a split second until I realize it isn't Richmond's Inquisition doing a reunion. I would travel VERY far for that. I guess I'll still force myself to make the trip from CT husband is playing!

Same weekend as MDF. If I hadn't already bought tickets+hotel for MDF, this would give it a good run.

P.S. black metal Inquisition > hardcore Inquisition. By far.

It's being nice to find your blog it's pretty informative and interesting post you had shared with us. Thanks

Excellent to see this great fest(of largely unpopular music to the casual observer) get coverage on the austinist. However, as much as people would love to see the Big Boys play this fest they will sadly never play again. Not sure how you got wind of the band being a listed performer but I'd edit the post to remove their name as some people would make the trip to Austin just for that band.

Holy cow, I want to move to Austin and I want to move there now! This is amazing. Dare I say better than San Francisco? Possibly. I'm going.

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.

What poster do you mean? I didn't see a poster but that sounds awesome. Link me to it if you have it.
