On Here We Go Magic's self-titled 2009 debut, frontman Luke Temple sang, on the album's closing vertiginous ballad "Everything's Big," "Eat like a cow, get fat like a pig."

SXSW 2009 Day 2

March 19th, 2009

Mar 31, 2009

Day two of SXSW for us began where day one ended, at the Central Presbyterian Church. The night before we had seen there the appealing trio of Department of Eagles, St. Vincent, and Camera Obscura. This night we also saw three bands at the venue, but only one was great. As we had missed M. Ward the night before at the same venue by not allowing enough time to navigate the long line, we were determined to arrive in plenty of time for Grizzly Bear’s 8:30 P.M. slot at the eMusic showcase. That meant that we had to sit through two other bands we had no interest in seeing, including one we’d never even heard of before. More
