Atlas Sound at SXSW (more by Chris Gersbeck)

Atlas Sound played St. Cecilia's Church last night (6/16) with support from Lichens and White Rainbow. If half hour drone sets are your thing, you may enjoy catching Lichens again at Zebulon on June 22 with Soft Circle and Urxed. And if you're into similar sounds, but with more hip hop beats, White Rainbow plays again tonight (6/17) at the Impose Magazine & Weird Magic show at 285 Kent Ave. The bill also includes Laurel Halo, La Big Vic, Co La (who aren't playing Death By Audio), and others. There will also be DJ sets by Brian DeGraw (Gang Gang Dance), DJ Azizaman, and Weird Magic DJs.

Atlas Sound, which was Bradford Cox with mic, guitar and effect pedals, played a great set last night with a ton of new songs (Bradford said he didn't really remember how to play most of his old ones). A full review and pics of this show coming soon.

Tickets go on sale today (6/17) at noon for Deerhunter's August 23 Webster Hall show. Tickets are still available for their August 22 show at the same venue too.
