Kristen Sollee: March 30, 2008

Best of SXSW

  1. RTX

    Raunchy metal, scuzzy blues, noise pop and lots of booze. Listen.

  2. Scantily clad females

    There seemed to be far more walking the streets this year…

  3. Blacklist

    At Maggie Mae’s last Saturday night, Josh Strawn’s snarling delivery of “Blue Shifted” off Blacklist ’s Solidaire EP gave the usually hopeful song a new vicious bite. The band’s showcase show this year certainly topped 2007’s.

  4. Austin’s East End

  5. Dalek

    As one audience member put it: kinda like My Bloody Valentine with KRS-1 on vox. Listen.

  6. Breakfast Burritos

  7. San Serac

    See how freestyle and nihilism can make the best bedfellows. Listen.

  8. Public Drunkenness


  9. False Van Morrison Rumors

    Banned from The Driskill for throwing room service trays? Sorry Perez, not true, says the hotel.

  10. Free shows on E. 6th

    Why get a badge or wristband when you can catch sounds off the street?
