Angel Olsen / Speedy Ortiz at Mohawk - 3/17/15
The SXSW music portion began yesterday (3/17), and one of last night's shows was the stacked folk/indie rock showcase at House of Vans at Mohawk outside. It began with guitar wiz Ryley Walker and recent Matador signee Steve Gunn (I missed both), and then continued with Torres, Waxahatchee, Speedy Ortiz and Angel Olsen.
Torres played with her new band (a backup singer included), and previewed a lot of material off her harder-rocking sophomore album, Sprinter. Waxhatchee on the other hand played mostly solo, with Katie Crutchfield bringing out her twin sister Allison for harmonies on a few songs. Then came Speedy Ortiz, also playing songs from an upcoming album, and sounding great as ever. Catch them again at the BV Thursday day party at Red 7.
The night wrapped up with another solo set, this time from Angel Olsen, who was maybe even more captivating on her own than with her band. (And more funny... she told us since she was going last she tried not to get drunk.)

Steve Gunn, who signed to Matador, is on tour now and playing a handful of shows in Austin for SXSW this week. Before the music portion officially kicks off, he plays a show at The Center Spot TONIGHT (3/16) with Weyes Blood, Marie Davidson, Silent Land Time Machine and DJ Alien 2. Plus there's an afterparty with Jock Club. That's $10 at the door and there will be complimentary drinks courtesy of Lone Star Beer and Tito's.
During SXSW's music portion, Steve plays two House of Vans at Mohawk shows: Transmission's Tuesday night (3/17) show with Angel Olsen, Speedy Ortiz, Waxahatchee, Torres and Ryley Walker; and Pitchfork's Wednesday (3/18) day show with Rae Sremmurd, Courtney Barnett, Viet Cong, Speedy Ortiz and Torres. He also plays the Third Man Records Truck on Wednesday.
Tonight's Center Spot show is co-presented with Chaos in Tejas who also host The Spits, Iceage, Lust For Youth, Untold, Sheer Mag, The Ukiah Drag and Residuels at Beerland Saturday (3/21) afternoon. That's free.

Waxahatchee @ Stubb's
Pitchfork Fest just announced their final 2013 lineup and not surprisingly it contains Waxahatchee whose amazing 2013 album they so wisely chose to champion.
As mentioned, Waxahatchee was just in Austin for some SXSW shows. Our own Andrew Sacher caught her at Holy Mountain and wrote:
Easily one of the most anticipated artists at this year's SXSW is Waxahatchee, whose new album, Cerulean Salt, just hit shelves and is driving a lot of people wild. And her live show lives up too. She played full band and stuck to the more rock-oriented songs and rock versions of softer tunes, and at least in the front of the room, the crowd was completely zoned in. "I loved Waxahatchee!" I excitedly said to someone at the show. "Yeah, everyone does," was her response. It's true.Pictures in this post are from Waxahatchee's SXSW-Wednesday night NPR showcase at Stubb's (the one Nick Cave & Yeah Yeah Yeahs also played).
As also mentioned, Waxahatchee will be back in Austin in June for Chaos in Tejas for a show at The North Door on June 2nd with Iceage, Total Control, and Lower. That is definitely not a show to miss and tickets are still on sale.
