Bonaparte @ The Belmont, Austin 3/13/2013
As mentioned, Berlin-based theatrical rockers Bonaparte are currently in the States visiting for SXSW. On Wednesday (3/13) they played the "Warner Sound captured by Nikon" party at The Belmont in Austin. Bonaparte embraced both sides of this week in Austin: they definitely kept it weird, but also had their "divas" wearing giant blocks on their heads with QR codes plastered on them.
NYC will get the full Bonaparte experience next week with two shows: Union Hall on March 18 with Tim Fite (tix) and Pianos on March 19 that's with Finland's K-X-P (tix). Frontman Tobias Jundt will also do a solo show "with divas" at Pianos on March 26, again with Tim Fite as well as The Everymen and Bedfellows (tix).
