"Now that we've taken a day to absorb a week of music at SXSW 2014, the Reverb staff has put together its picks of best shows. A clear stand-out is St. Vincent's set at Stubb's on March 12. With a full visual experience, dynamic guitar work and her usual vocal strength, Vincent set a high bar to beat throughout the rest of SXSW 2014. Other highlights included a refreshing and intelligent performance from Hospitality on March 13 along with Parquet Courts' buisness-like and blistering show at Red 7 on March 14." [Hey Reverb]
A full set of photos with review from BrooklynVegan's Friday day party at Red 7 is HERE (Parquet Courts included). Thursday is HERE and HERE. More photos from Friday below...

Jack Skippy McFadden

Jack McFadden, a onetime Brooklynite who moved to Austin and currently works as a talent buyer at Emo's, gave us a list of his favorite music from 2012 including top 10 albums and a Spotify playlist of his favorite songs. Check it out below.

For those counting at home, that is three talent buyers (the people who book bands into clubs) that have revealed their hand to us, including NYC's Johnny Beach and Chaos in Tejas honcho Timmy Hefner.

The Faint and Trust also gave us their lists. The pair recently toured through Texas and played a Skippy-booked show at Emo's.

McFadden's greatest hits of 2012, below.

FunFunFun Fest 2012 Bingo!

While we've had some teasers in the last few weeks - Wednesday night was the night for BINGO - and the full Fun Fun Fun Fest reveal.

On 7/11 (Happy Slurpee Day!) Fun Fun Fun held their bingo-to-reveal-the-artists event, and while we already knew about Run DMC reuniting and some others, there were quite a few surprises in the massive list of musical acts and comedians announced (Public Image Ltd., Youth of Today, De La Soul, X, Bob Mould, Saul Williams, and Hannibal Burress to name a few).

The headliners (in addition to the aforementioned Run DMC reunion) are an electic-but-looked-forward-to group: Santigold, Refused, and for Comedy David Cross.

Three-day and PIP passes go on sale on Thursday at 10AM CST and will no doubt move fast. Get them here once the clock passes 9:59...

See the full line-up below.

Just like we'll do for Hardly Art on SXSW Wednesday & Thursday, BrooklynVegan will hand over Hotel Vegas (aka "Hotel Vegan" during the day) to Pop Montreal Friday night, for their official SXSW showcase.

We'll be there until around 6pm that day, but after that, Pop Montreal will host their showcase featuring artists Blackie, UN, Jef Barbara, Motzart's Sister, Duzheknew, Jennifer Castle, Cousins, and Tops.

Pop Montreal, the SXSW of Montreal, will also be hosting a day party on Thursday, at a venue that has yet to be announced. Of this, they said in a press release

At SXSW, POP Montreal wants to let you know that POP is Serious. Thursday, March 15th, POP will host a dayparty with FREE drinks for the first 150 people who show up.
We don't know where it is, but the event will include artists Trust, Doldroms, Speech Debelle, Jef Barbara, Tops, Zammuto, Adam & The Amethysts, Leif Vollebekk, and Cousins.

Toronto duo Trust, aside from SXSW, are playing two shows in New York in March, and one in Chicago in April, and have their LP, TRST coming out Tuesday, Feb. 28th. The record being released via Arts & Crafts, is Trust's debut LP. The tracklist, and video for "Bulbform" are available at BrooklynVegan.
