The title of this post, that's what South By Southwest is like. Complete and udder clusterfuck. We got to Austin yesterday, played a house party, then I caught The Photo Atlas, Hearts of Palm, and a crazy 3 AM Octopus Project set. Insane.
We've neglected this blog pretty hard, so I wrote a really long tour diary-ish thing that talks about our experiences and focuses on the perception of "coolness" within the areas we've been playing. It's being posted in installments at Annie Zaleski'sRiverfront Times A to Z blog.
Today we play at a mexican restaurant with Pattern is Movement, who may be one of the best bands in the universe. If I don't get to see these bands at SXSW, I may murder somebody: The Weakerthans, Ra Ra Riot, Tera Melos.
