Milk Music/Fat Tony/The Blind Shake @ Bruise Cruise, Austin, TX, 3/10/2013
Though the music portion of SXSW isn't in full force yet, there are still some shows that have gone down, including yesterday's (3/10) Bruise Cruise with Milk Music, Fat Tony, The Blind Shake, and Outer Minds. Like Bruise Cruise lineups always tend to be, it was a good party-style way to kick off SXSW with three punkish bands and an energetic rapper to top things off. Pictures from that cruise are in this post.
All four bands have other SXSW shows coming up, and Milk Music will be at our Thursday day party on the outdoor stage with Cloud Nothings, METZ, The Spits, Death, Rough Francis, and Single Mothers. It's free with RSVP.
Fat Tony also just released the song "Hood Party," which features Kool A.D. (formerly of Das Racist) and Despot), and will appear on his new album, Smart Ass Black Boy, which is due out on June 11 via Young One Records. You can download that track above or stream it below.
The Bruise Cruise was thrown by booking agency Panache, who also has other upcoming SXSW shows too.
