The Jesus & Mary Chain @ SXSW (jnipmex)
Jesus and Mary Chain

The Jesus & Mary Chain played a SXSW show last night, Thursday (3/15), at the Belmont (same venue we threw our Daniel Johnston/Built to Spill shindig in on Tuesday). It was one of their four scheduled U.S. shows this month, though the first two were postponed/cancelled due to some visa issues. During their Austin set, to quote @liveflowers, "some guy just jumped on stage & stripped naked next to jim reid before getting thrown off stage." Stay tuned for pics as they surface. Check out a picture of the setlist from the 3/13 show, HERE.

Icy and great LA band Cold Showers fittingly opened the showcase, AND will play their very next show at noon TODAY (3/16) at Hotel Vegan in Austin (at Hotel Vegas, 1500 E. 6th St, Austin, TX). They are the band that was previously marked as "TBA" and join a lineup that includes Polica, The Twilight Sad, Tennis, Youth Lagoon, TRUST, Light Asylum, Eleanor Friedberger, The Black Angels, and many more. If you're in Austin, stop by! Check out a video of Cold Showers performing in "Room 205" below...
