The City of Austin is full of greasy hair, backbeats and sticky fingers. You can't throw a rock down the street without hitting a bass player or his/her handler pimping a set later this week. I was in line for a belly of meat, bread and onions when a I was accosted by a member of The Hanks, who was handing out comic strips promoting their gig on Thurday night at The Troubadour Saloon. I may check it out purely out of appreciation of the clever pimping. I stuck around for most of the Sub Pop showcase at Emo's, which featured a set from Loney, Dear, pictured above. Check out SXSW: The Daily Report Podcast for audio samples from the show and a few words from the Nashville-based teenage band Fouled Out.
