SXSW: The Future is Unwritten

Temperate weather and a Dead Child.

 Greetings from the perfectly temperate Austin, Texas. After a relatively late arrival last night, I turned in early (well, after a couple of requisite cocktails with my boys in the Cops). Today was taken up primarily by catching up with old friends. Shortly after catching a stellar set from Future of the Left (essentially the new version of Mclusky, pictured above) I ran into a few of the folks from Touch and Go Records at Emo's, who recommended I try to catch Dead Child tonight, the new metal-oriented project from Slint's Dave Pajo (more on that later, in theory).P1000397.jpg


Food was in order, so I head to South Congress for tacos and tequila with the Sealed With a Kiss crew: Neumo's owner/booking agent Jason Lajuenesse and his Canadian co-conspirators Malcom Croome and Dani Vachon (pictured above).

I just received a call from our beloved music editor Brian Barr, who is currently wandering around 6th with new Stranger music editor Jonathan Zwickle, so I'm going to sign off and join them for what is sure to be an interesting evening. Hopefully I'll be able to catch sets from Reigning Sound and the Gossip later tonight. Until tomorrow...
