SxSW Countdown [29 Days]

Yes, South By Southwest 2009 is rapidly approaching. We have now confirmed the eight bands that will be playing our free show on the Black Fontanelle compound. In my last show-related post, I announced the bands AIDS Wolf from Montreal, Magic Jewels from Austin, Eat Skull from Portland, and Hot Lava from Richmond. Here are the final four in what promises to be one of the highlights of the week's free shows. At least for us.

Googled & Found

So, yesterday, I found this gem...

It seems someone went to such great lengths, to compile a Bruce Springsteen cover list, that Halcón de la Madre's version of "State Trooper" (feat. on our compilation Sing A Rainbow!) made the list. The list is enormous and can be found HERE.

SxSW Countdown [43 days]

Every year, the city of Austin, Texas has the South By Southwest Music and Film Conference. My sweet lord, what a time to be here. The streets are packed with people going show to show, movie to movie. I, of course, stay on the free side of things. Last year, I did my first review of it for Evolve Happy. You can read my recap HERE.

This year, we're trying something new to enhance our experience. On the Black Fontanelle compound, located right beneath my feet, we're hosting a free day show. The idea started out simply enough when we asked, Montreal band, AIDS Wolf if they needed a place to stay during that week. They accepted and we quickly started "joking" about how they should play a show in our carport. They again accepted. Well, damn, time to plan a show. Since that day, we at the compound have been collecting acts, and it has turned into one hell of a show. Two stages. Eight bands confirmed. Forty-three days and counting.
