JanSport Presents the Under the Radar SXSW Party 2010 Recap

Vivian Girls, Sondre Lerche, The Veils, Plants and Animals, Avi Buffalo, Everything Everything, and The Invisible

Mar 25, 2010

Under the Radar‘s 2010 SXSW day party went down on Saturday, March 20, from 12 - 6 p.m., at Klub Krucial, and was sponsored by JanSport. It was the fifth year that Under the Radar has hosted a SXSW party and the magazine’s sixth SXSW party over all (one year we hosted two). The cold and rainy weather didn’t deter enthusiastic music fans and music industry professionals from venturing out on the last day of SXSW. The party included performances by Vivian Girls, Sondre Lerche, The Veils, Plants and Animals, Avi Buffalo, Everything Everything, and The Invisible. More

In my experience, Saturday night, the last night of SXSW music, is usually the weakest night. Most bands and attendees are fully burnt out by the time the fourth night rolls around and some industry folk even leave Austin on Saturday morning or afternoon, so the Saturday night line-up simply isn’t as strong. Whereas on previous nights there were as many as five bands playing at the same time that I wanted to see, on Saturday night there were rarely more than two truly appealing bands playing at once and during certain hours there was only one. The beauty of this is that you don’t have to agonize over which artists to see. Despite our tiredness and severely sore feet after four days of standing and trekking around Austin, three of the four artists we did see Saturday night got us up and dancing. More

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

SXSW 2010 Day 1 Recap, Part 2

The Walkmen, Sharon Jones and the Dap-kings, Broken Bells, Rose Elinor Dougall, and The Invisible

Mar 20, 2010

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

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.
