One of the greatest things about South by? Surprise shows! As I pondered my limited choices for the evening of 3/21 in Austin, I received a text about a FREE and last minute show at Lovejoys. The bill included notables like Green & Wood (who I missed), local doom killers The Roller, Dark Castle, and the mighty Weedeater who killed the previous night (3/20) at the Tone Deaf Showcase!

I was in, and naturally a lineup like this in a tiny venue like Lovejoys was not disappointing. More pics from the killer show that ended my South By Southwest experience are below.

Weedeater are currently on tour and are scheduled to hit NYC on 4/10 at The Studio at Webster Hall with The Gates of Slumber, Black Tusk, and Struck By Lightning. Tickets for this killer (BV/Osiris-presented) four way are still available. Weedeater also added more headlining dates in April and May. Their updated schedule is also below...
