SXSW 2015. A Quick Recap.

Saw some great acts at #sxsw2015. Austin didn’t seem to have the same buzz as past years, but the acts were still great. Some of my faves were, ibeyi, cool French/Cuban sisters doing ethnic soul music with awesome beats.  Also, Deerhoof came through big.  They pulled off some intense art rock, that went off almost into out there free jazz. Awesome, energetic live show.  Spoon also did a free show at Town Lake. One of my favorite bands, and they’ve up’ed their game. They have added some visuals to the live show, and are looking like a full fledged arena rock act these days. Some of the newer stuff I wasn’t really into, but they have progressed with their sound and songs. Overall it was a good #sxsw, not the best I’ve been to, but an excuse to get to Austin and hear music, always wins.

Cool Blurb From Space City Rock. Read On.

dUNE.TX
Ah, dUNE.TX, still kicking after all these freaking years. I can’t be positive about it, but I’m fairly certain Chris Sacco and his cohorts were already playing regular shows around town when I first moved here, and that was just shy of 20 years ago, now; through the intervening decades, Sacco’s insistently popped up again and again, blasting out that overfuzzed, wide-smiling, kinda-grooving alt-rock like he just doesn’t give a damn about anything else. And hey, I’ve got to respect that, y’know?

I’ll admit to not being dUNE.TX’s biggest fan back in the day, but listening back now to tracks off 2002’s Goldenarm and 1999’s Machowagon, I’m finding myself grinning and bobbing my head along. Those songs are sweet and goofy like vintage Fountains of Wayne or Cheap Trick but with a distinctly Texan accent to ‘em, like sadly-overlooked ’90s band Tripping Daisy, and yeah, I’m liking ‘em more than I remembered from the olden days. And just for fun, here’s a video from the band’s early 2000s heyday, for “The Kids”
