Casiokids played SXSW (pics), playing South Street Seaport

“There’s plenty of retro, synth-driven pop here at SXSW. We’ve already discussed Little Boots and missed other acts such as Tigercity. Add the Casio Kids to the list, whose afternoon performance was their 10th in the last four days. They didn’t look any worse for the wear, with colorfully light and sweetly infectious dance pop. More live than sampled, the Casio Kids shot vibrant keyboard tones through slicing guitar lines.” [LA Times]

The BrooklynVegan co-sponsored Sweden Does SXSW party one day (afternoon) earlier was probably the Norwegian band’s 8th show. They also handled that one (at Habana Calle) with nothing but smiles (as you can see in the pictures in this post).

It may have snowed yesterday in NYC, but that doesn’t mean summer isn’t fast-approaching. And that means lots of free shows at public places. One such place is South Street Seaport, and that’s where Casiokids will be playing on August 7th. No other US dates scheduled at the moment, but I’m sure they won’t come all the way over here to play just once (or if they do, it will be very unlike them). Stay tuned.

Casiokids were last in NYC right before SXSW, and before that it was for CMJ where, among other places, they played a show put on by the same people that do the shows at the Seaport. More SXSW pics and tour dates below…
