SXSW is here! I don’t usually do any sort of party talk here at SOTO, but I have a bash this Sunday and I want you to be there! Once again it’s Austin Town Hall vs Side One Track One, and it’s happening at Hotel Vegas and Volstead. Last year we had a pretty healthy lineup, but for 2017 we wrangled in a whopping 30 bands (29 from Austin, 1 from France). It’s FREE and there’s no RSVP required. Come at 2pm, stay to 2am. Down below you’ll find the lineup and music for each band! Enjoy.
PS – No bonus recommendations today. Also, just so you know, the site will largely be in hibernation mode all next week. Film reviews will still be a go, but don’t expect much else otherwise until the festival is a wrap.
Recently I was browsing Facebook, and I noticed that a local artist by the name of John Wesley Coleman was offering up custom songs for $10. I’ve been a fan of the guy for a while, so I did what any person with an extra $10 would do and I commissioned him to make a SOTO theme song. What resulted was some sort of bizarre, yet oddly catch psych tune that I really dig. Do me a favor and listen to it.
By the way, I highly recommend checking out JWC’s other stuff. You can even listen to some of the songs he’s done for other people on his Facebook page … which will hopefully give you an idea of something you’d like for him to do for you. It only takes an email and $10!
