SXSW – 5 Shows Not To Miss

12 03 2007

With the music portion of SXSW just about to kick into full gear, I thought I would highlight some of the artists I would see if I had actually made it there… [There are so many amazing bands this was way harder to compile than I thought it would be…]

Matt & Kim

Ok, its clearly no secret that I am a huge Matt & Kim fan. You just have to love them and their high energy performances. They are the epitome of what house shows and making music because it makes you happy is all about. Check out their website


2 – Flosstradamus Friday, March 16 – 9:45pm at Beauty Bar, 617 E 7th Street
I won’t even try to pretend here…. Curt from Flosstradamus is a friend and Markus’ roommate but regardless, I wouldn’t miss this show even if he was a complete stranger. This will be another high-energy, 100% fun show. Check out their myspace page.


3 – CruiserweightThursday, March 15th – 11pm at Latitude 30, 512 San Jacinto Street
A modern day Partridge family where sibling rivalry doesn’t seem to exist. Stella’s voice proves the powerful, upbeat ringer. Check out their website.
