Despite getting into a physical altercation with my alarm clock on the last day of SXSW (Final score, me: 0, alarm clock: 1), I still summoned the fortitude to see a few more bands. Thankfully, Saturday a historically light day when it comes to showcases, and in between sets we found time to engage in a few extra-curricular activities. Chiefly, that meant enjoying the perfect storm of SXSW attendees, college students on spring break, St. Patrick’s Day pub-crawlers, and locals out for a weekend, as they came together in an awkward cloud of music, booze, and terrible green clothing.

The artist lineup was a bit disjointed in terms of genre spanning, but it still was a promising kickoff to the fest. More

Fanfarlo at the Bowery Ballroom, New York, NY

September 21st, 2009

Oct 06, 2009

On "I'm A Pilot," the opening track from Fanfarlo's glorious debut LP Reservoir (Atlantic), frontman Simon Balthazar croons, "If I stay in this room, they'll remember me for my youth." The waltz as a whole is about the famed aviator Howard Hughes, who slowly went insane and shut himself in a film-screening room for four months, then disappeared from the public eye. But taken slightly out of context, "I'm A Pilot" very much defines the London-based orchestral pop outfit, who graciously and effortlessly charmed the crowd at a packed Bowery Ballroom on Sept. 21.
