by Black Bubblegum
What are you up to Wednesday, March 18th? If you're in the greater Austin region, it might be a good idea to slide on down to Emo's for a day of killer bands, suds, and full on badass-ed-ness. To get all official and shit, we'd like to announce the FREE BROOKLYN VEGAN/SOLID PR DAY PARTY featuring
- 5:45pm: The Bronx
- 5:00pm: Young Widows
- 4:15pm: Annihilation Time
- 3:30pm: Trash Talk
- 2:45pm: Psychedelic Horseshit
- 2:00pm: Garotas Suecas
This all goes down inside Emo's on the 2nd stage on the afternoon of the first day of SXSW Music. Happening at the same time on the main stage of the same venue is the also-killer, also-free Fat Possum Records day party with King Kahn & BBQ, Wavves, Thomas Function, Strange Boys, Crocodiles, Thomas Function and more.
Later that same night is the official BrooklynVegan SXSW showcase at Club De Ville, about a block away. We're (BrooklynVegan) also doing sorta-TBA, free day parties on the Thursday and Friday of SXSW (full details coming shortly).
Young Widows recently dropped the video for "Old Skin" from Old Wounds, a song that premiered right here on BrooklynVegan. The band is logging some miles in the coming months (dates below), linking up with Australian band My Disco for the trek and playing Europa in Brooklyn with The Austerity Program & Tournament on April 1st in the process (tickets here). The pair will also drop a split 7", one of a series with the likes of Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Pelican, and Melt-Banana.
NYCers will have FOUR chances to check out Garotas Suecas in the coming month, three in person and one on the Pat Duncan Show on WFMU on March 26th. The band has lined up live appearances at Mercury Lounge on March 24th (tickets here), Death By Audio on April 5, and Zebulon on April 6th.
Psychedelic Horseshit have a "a self released LP collecting our very first and oldest 4 track recordings" due in "March or April" entitled Golden Oldies as well as a TON of new material including Shitgaze Anthems 12" EP on Woodsist (spring 09), Acid Test 12" EP on Troubleman Unltd. (late spring/early sum 09), Beached Wails 7" with a "surprise release date", and their second LP, Too Many Hits, on Slitbreeze (late summer 09). The Columbus, Ohio crew have a few dates on the calendar as well, check THOSE out, along with everyone's tour dates, below...

DOWNLOAD: Fleet Foxes - Oliver James (MP3)
If I had to do it over, I definitely wouldn't have put Fleet Foxes (think Crosby Stills & Nash, Band of Horses, My Morning Jacket) on after Clipd Beaks (think noise) who came after Genghis Tron (think metal). Actually, I wouldn't have done it that way the first time either. Fleet Foxes' set time at my Thursday SXSW day party was more of a last minute necessity, and I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity to have one of the bands I wanted to see the most at SXSW on the bill - even if it meant they went on after Clipd Beaks. It did end up being a little of an awkward transition, and there were a lot more people across the street checking out Holy Fuck at the time (I went back and forth), but ultimately it didn't matter. Fleet Foxes' performance on the stage of Emo's Lounge was great (as were the bits and pieces I caught of some of the other shows they played in Austin that week).
After the show, an employee of Emo's told me that he discovers that "ONE BAND" at SXSW each year, and it looked like Fleet Foxes were filling that slot for him in 2008. Seattle PI had something similar to say...
I didn't even try to see the festivals' buzz bands, which had impossible three-hour lines looping around the block. The only band I waited for was Seattle's Fleet Foxes. They gave what was the most professional-sounding concert I heard all week. Their Crosby, Stills, and Nash vocal harmonies were effortless and blissful, and they had the stage presence of The Band.The excitement of seeing them for the first time won't be there for me tonight (March 29 at Bowery Ballroom in NYC), but that doesn't change the fact that I'm still looking forward to it. And it's a much more fitting bill for them this time: Fleet Foxes play before Blitzen Trapper and after Ola Podrida. More tour dates HERE. More SXSW pictures below.....
