By the third day of SXSW the lack of sleep was really catching up to us. As with the day before, we had to wake up early again to conduct a photo-shoot (three of them in fact), which again left no time for day parties. By the time the evening rolled around we were already burnt out, but still game to check out more bands. Alas, Friday offered little other than underwhelming sets, including ones by a shy Swedish duo and a surprisingly dark hyped Brooklyn band. More

Day two of SXSW was a bit challenging, considering the lack of sleep we'd gotten the night before. Seeing a show at 1 a.m. is all well and good if you don't have to wake up early the next morning to write about it or conduct other business. We weren't able to attend any day parties on the second day of SXSW music 2010, due to two photo-shoots we were conducting, including one at the way too early hour of 10 a.m. (well, early for SXSW). But that night we were able to catch sets from two Canadian bands (including one collective who's seemingly no longer broken), some Los Angeles natives, and a camera shy actress/singer. More

The line-up includes Vivian Girls, Sondre Lerche, The Veils, Plants and Animals, Avi Buffalo, Everything Everything, and The Invisible. More

After wandering around a bunch of day parties, our evening's entertainment for the first night of SXSW 2010 mainly took place at Stubb's, an outdoor venue I'm not overly wild about. Stubb's is one of the bigger venues at SXSW, so it doesn't have the same feel of watching some exciting new artist in a tiny club that the rest of South By has. For the first night we saw sets by The Walkmen, Sharon Jones and the Dap-kings, Broken Bells, Rose Elinor Dougall, and The Invisible. More

Brothers features one track ("Tighten Up") produced by Danger Mouse, who manned the boards for 2008's Attack and Release. More

A sea of green t-shirt wearing drunken Austin locals intermingled with diehard audio fans and industry types as the start of the music portion of SXSW 2010 coincided with St. Patrick's Day. Seeing no need to ease into things, this writer jumped in at 2 p.m., stopped at 1:30 a.m., and saw a total of 11 artists during the first day, including the likes of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Broken Bells, The Walkmen, and many others. But more on all that in a later post. First, here is a recap of the day parties we attended, which included sets by Findlay Brown, Oh No Ono, Casiokids, Real Estate, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, and Everything Everything.
