DC Does TX 2010

Well, it's almost that time again...the most wonderful time of the year: SXSW. There are many things I love about living in Austin but SXSW is at the top of the list. Thousands of bands descend upon the city, play a fuck load of free shows (often w/ free beer), and turn all of Austin in one giant party. God I love it. This year will be extra magical-special because Jimbromski and family are coming down to partake in the activities. It'll be interesting as we balance time with the wives and kids riding the choo-choo train at Barton Springs with time drinking beers at Emo's with BabyStew Steve and Mr. Malitz. Fortunately, we have a lot of experience parenting while hungover.

As you might imagine, Sacklunch (remember him?) and Potsy are insanely jealous they won't be at SXSW. Jimbromski, being the devious and clever man that he is, surreptitiously made his trip plans w/o informing Potsy and Sacklunch, thereby ensuring free room and board at La Casa del Jumbo Slice. Once again proving that in a game of Rock Club Survivor, Jimbromski would win the million dollars.

As I mentioned there are more shows and parties than I can keep track of but one show I'm sure to attend is the DC Does TX party:

I'm especially excited to see Title Tracks for the first time (I missed their Austin show last month) and I always look forward to Deleted Scenes. Of course, it's a solid lineup from top to bottom. And if that's not reason enough to attend, there will be free beer compliments of Doghead Fish Craft Brewery. Here are the set times:

12-12:30 - Vandaveer
12:45-1:15 - Pree
1:30-2:00 - Deleted Scenes
2:15-2:45 - Title Tracks
3:00-3:30 - Le Loup
3:45-4:15 - US Royalty
4:25-4:55 - Middle Distance Runner

I was disappointed by the addition of Rose Guerin to the Vandaveer line-up. Last time I heard Mark Heidinger sing with Rose, it just didn't seem to mesh well. Maybe that was a one-off. Hope so, because of all the bands listed, I think Vandaveer could be in the top three.

i doubt i'll be seeing too many DC bands down there but i'll try to find this year's kurt vile/FOTL combo for us to stalk...

Yeah, I'd skip the DC bands if I were you. I'm won't be seeing any Austin bands. I can see them anytime.

I'll be looking to you for 2 or 3 bands that we absolutely must see. Kurt Vile & FOTL were excellent choices last year.

I'm skipping all DC bands, all Chicago bands and all Austin bands. In fact, I'm only seeing bands from Zimbabwe and Luxembourg. Amazingly, that still leaves me with about 50 bands. And, yes, they all have beards.
