One of my personal highlights from SXSW 2015 was seeing Built By Snow reunite after a five-year break. The band describes their sound as “catchy keyboard indie pop rock with an explosion of velcro melodies and magnetic hooks that hit your brain like an Atari blasting out of a bazooka.” Or you could just imagine what would happen if Weezer and Devo had a musical child that wrote the soundtrack for your favorite 80′s video games. The reunion party continues this Friday at Holy Mountain with Holiday, Growl, and Satalights. The show is all ages; $5 advance tix and $8 at the door.
Following the reunion party, you can also catch them this Saturday at the Pecan Street Festival (on the Red River Stage) in downtown Austin. This performance is free and family friendly. BBS will be playing a few new tunes along with old favorites like Underneath and Drag Away. Their songs are super catchy and their shows are so much fun that you’ll want to clap and sing along.
