SXSW Local Schedule


Yeah, so chances are if you're going to SXSW this year like we are, you probably aren't going to see local bands that play around here all the time. But we figured we would post when and where some of the Dallas/Ft Worth/Denton bands are playing anyway, just in case you wanted to go show your support or something dumb like that.

One exception: I think there is a good chance that we'll be seeing Midlake on Wed. They'll probably play mostly new stuff, and if the rest of it is anything like the recently leaked "Roscoe," it should be as good or better than any other show going on that night. By the way, this list is not complete, as it does not include dumb local crap that no one reading this blog will care about, or stuff that we've never heard of before and can't really recommend. Whoomp here it is:

WED

Midlake (Fox and Hound) midnight
Strange Boys (Velvet Spade) 9pm
Pilotdrift (Dirty Dog Bar) 10pm
Baboon (spiro's) 11pm
Crushed Stars (latitude 30) 8pm

THURS

Happy Bullets (Karma Lounge) midnight
Money Waters (Back Room) 8:45 (we weren't sure if anyone cares about local hip hop, so we decided to include it, even though we haven't heard much of it)


FRI

Best Fwends (latitude 30) 11pm
Centro-matic (Maggie Mae's) 1am
Pikahsso (Club One 15) 11pm (again, we really don't know about this one either)

SAT

The Theater Fire (Latitude 30) 10pm
Bosque Brown (Buffalo Billiards) 11pm
Salim Nourallah (Habana Calle 6) 8pm


Not that all these bands are totally bitchin' or anything, they just seem like the best that is being offered by DFWd this year. Beli dat.

The complete list of DFW band shows at SxSW, including unofficial gigs and the ones no one will care about, is on on my blog. Feel free to send me show info of local bands that are missing. Again, it's a *show listing*, not a recommendation. That's why we have you guys.

Good luck getting into that Midlake show. You do know who the "special guest" at their showcase is, right?
