Song, by Toad at SXSW, Please Come to My Party or I’ll Look Like a Right Cunt
Well, it’s a vulgar headline, but you know I will. No-one wants to be that stupid prick at the world’s busiest music festival with not a fucking soul at his fucking picnic. So honestly, please come!
In all honesty, I think you’ll struggle to find a finer lineup for an afternoon’s entertainment. Blitzen Trapper are headlining. Mute’s Big Deal are playing too, who I discovered courtesy of the brilliant PAWS covering one of their songs for our June split 12″. Jonathan Meiburg from Shearwater will be playing a stripped back set with an electric guitar and a backing vocalist, we have the phenomenal Micah P. Hinson, the Twilight Sad and Brown Brogues.
This is all taking place at the Hype Hotel, which I think used to be the Pure Groove House, but I’m not sure. To get in and find out all the details and all that pish, just go here and fill in some forms and so on and they’ll be sure to let you in.
Actually, from my experience of SXSW you’ll get in whatever happens, but it might cost you $15 or so if you don’t register in advance or get a badge thingy. Anyway, see you there if you happen to around. Otherwise, well, I’ll be sure to swear at you on the internet about something soon enough. Happy March, hipsters!More: big deal, blitzen trapper, brown brogues, hype machine, jonathan meiburg, micah p hinson, my old kentucky blog, shearwater, sxsw, twilight sad
