By now you should be in full planning mode for SXSW. If you’re not, you’re in trouble. Don’t worry though, I’m here to help. What are the keys for the best day shows? It has to have amazing bands, free beer, and free tacos. If you agree then my friends and I are hosting the perfect show for you: DC Against The World at The New Movement on Thursday, March 13 from 11AM to 6PM.

The show is to a follow up to last year’s packed DC vs Austin event and is the seventh year we’ve thrown a party spotlighting bands from Washington, DC. Each year the party has got bigger and better. This lineup is our best yet thanks to sponsors CHIRP – Chicago Independent Radio ProjectFredericksburg All AgesRogness Brewing Company and Bitch Beer.

Representing DC are art rockers Deleted Scenes, singer-songwriter Olivia Mancini, the much buzzed about Coeds, and indie rockers Tereu Tereu. The bands representing the World are funk-punk gods The Coup, indie pop trio HospitalityVertical Scratchers (featuring members of Brainiac/Enon) , garage rockers The Blind ShakeThe Audacity and No Regrets Coyote as well the Hebrew shoegaze of Vaadat Charigim, and psych-rockers Outer Minds. Set times are as follows …

Quickdraw: Happy Diving, Solids, Hospitality, Jack Name, Metronomy

November 18, 2013

Today’s music is brought to you by you.  Enjoy.

:Happy Diving – Sincere:  The nice folks over at Father/Daughter Records recently added Happy Diving to their roster and they will release their self titled debut on January 14.  The band’s first single sounds like it was pulled directly out of the 90s, so of course I love it.

:Solids – Traces:  This song is a glorious blast of distortion and energy, and I’m really digging it.  Consider me excited to check out Solids’ Blame Confusion, which is due out on February 18 via Fat Possum Records.

:Hospitality – I Miss Your Bones:  Here’s a new one from Hospitality that I apparently didn’t catch a couple of weeks back.  It’s a bit quirky, but that’s definitely not a bad thing.  Trouble is set to be released on January 28 via Merge Records.

:Jack Name – Pure Terror:  There isn’t anything about this track that isn’t dense, so I definitely recommend spending some quality headphone time with it.  Jack Name will release Light Show on January 21 via God? Records.

:Metronomy – I’m Aquarius:  I’ve been jamming this one for a few days now.  It’s so damn catchy.  Good luck not getting it lodged in your head forever.  Metronomy will release Love Letters on the very far way date of March 11 through Because Music/Electra Records.
