Four (sxsw) for Friday

Alright folks, one day it will happen. I’ll be able to attend the music event that someone custom made for me… sxsw. Until then, I’m sharing four of the (hundreds) of shows that I would have gone to had I been down there. Since we’ve recently been over my affinity for Andrew Belle, James Vincent McMorrow, The Civil Wars, The Romany Rye, and so on, I’ll share four more that would have been great to see/hear.

Noah and the Whale – L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N // I think I’ve mentioned my distaste for clever song names that make me type more than I want to.

Vandaveer – The Waking Hour (A Minor Spell) // You may not love this song, but I’ve got a good feeling that they are probably pretty great to see live.

Maps & Atlases – Living Decorations // This band is a little quirky, but they end up getting more play around the office than is probably warranted. Again, I’m guessing a pretty interesting live show.

Lupe Fiasco – The Show Goes On // Once again, my rap-guru from the NW hasn’t steered us wrong.

Let’s go ahead and decide now. We’re all going next year.

  1. Saw Vandaveer at The Hideout in Chicago in the fall of 2009. One of my all-time favorite Chicago shows. It was one of those rare cases where the band and venue seem to have just been made for each other. Intimate, sweet, sincere. Good. Really good.
