Did any of you weekend one-ers catch Pinback?
Can anyone please report on the Tame Impala show? I'm dying to know.
Caught a little bit of Tame Impala. Unfortunately, the sound wasn't so great where I was standing, so I can't really comment on their set.
Neko Case into Lionel Richie was definitely a beautiful ending to my vacation.
Tame Impala sounded great actually. I was near the back of the crowd in order to secure a spot for Thom, but they sounded great and the crowd was into it. The bass was loud, as it should be.
Glad to know there are as many audiophiles as we do. Sound is indeed important... But, any notes on content? I like that the bass was up- Yes, it should be. Any Flaming Lips songs, jams, noteworthy observations?
Looking for some bands on Sunday..... W1 reviews?
Also were getting in to Austin around 5ish wed evening....any recs on getting downtown from the airport as well as eats and/or meetups in the area...
As for getting downtown from the airport, a cab ride will suffice, really depends on what time you get there, as long as it's not during rush hour. As for dining, choose from any restaurant really. I live in San Antonio, but honestly, any recommendation or place you see is likely to be good. The foodtrucks are good if that's your thing. I love Austin Daily Press for sandwiches off Red River. Hoboken Pie has my favorite pizza in the city.
I will be there Saturday and Sunday.
So apparently Phoenix played a secret show at an Austin area high school earlier
Food trucks are definitely our thing and I've heard about daily press. Looks like we do get in a lite before rush hour but just wondering if there was mass transit that was cheap &easy. Thanks for the revoews!
Webcast schedule released, 2 channels all weekend.
ChiLantro. It's a Korean-Mexican fusion truck. Sooooooo good after a night of drinking. The other one is East Side King, which is an Asian fusion truck. I highly recommend the chicken buns. It's located in the back patio of Liberty Bar. The bar itself was cool, too. It was a nice place to hang out and unwind after the festival.
Chi-Lantro is awesome, they had a booth at the festival, check it out for sure.
I'm not going to the fest, but I'll be at the Savages aftershow. Jorge and I were planning on meeting somewhere beforehand I think. I assume all of you are staying near 6th/downtown?
Savages tickets have been PLURchased. Sounds like the Parish and a pre-show beer will be our meetup spot if we don't see each other during the fest (cept you Gribbz...shaking head emoticon)
Ha, blame the aftershows. More or less all of the bands I wanted to see are doing/have done them. Also, it's a pain in the ass getting to and from Zilker Park. Not sure if y'all will have time to meet before the show on Friday.
Just bought my ticket for Savages. See you all there.
