that fucking list is too long.
All I saw was Annihilation Time and Dredg. Both of which are awesome live
I am totally going to check out Bonjour Brumaire.
I saw them this summer at Osheaga festival in Montreal and it was a dope.
They are like a Malajube 2.0 with more pop in it.
I didn't read the entire list but i noticed The Moaners will be there.
I like them. Have 2 of their CD's and the drummer sent me a T shirt.
I have a picture of myself wearing it at Coachella in 06 but I'm not posting any more pics for awhile.
wow that list is super long!!
i would say andrew bird and zion i,altho i probably missed a bunch seeing as my attention steered away. Is this a festival and where?
lol CKY and fastball what a joke
Paul is dead
Dignan, local band from my area. Worth a listen.
05,06,07,08,09,10,11, 12#1, 13#1, 14#1, 16#1
Best band on that list is The Sonics. THE original garage rock band from the 60s. If they aren't playing too high profile of a showcase (where you will need a badge to get in) or they are playing a non-official day party, I will drive down to see them.
It's harder to get passes if you're not able to go to Austin to buy them.
Keep Austin Weird!....bomb ass city.
Last year I just did free shows on Friday and Saturday and saw so many freaking bands without spending a dime it was ridiculous.
It took 36 posts for someone to say the Vaselines. This thread should be waterboarded.
*based upon tedious fact checking.
Just found out local (Mpls) band I saw last night is playing SXSW when they get back from quick UK tour - Solid Gold http://www.myspace.com/solidgoldband
Me like very much.
NOMO, +/-, Ra Ra Riot and Bam Bam
