“Bucket List” Day at SXSW

“Bucket List” Day at SXSW

I’ll probably think of my last day at SXSW as the “bucket list” day. That is to say that I crossed a whole lot of names off of the mental list of artists that I’d love to see but never had. Just on Friday alone I saw Emmylou Harris, Divine Fits (who I interviewed on […]

Charles Bradley and Kendrick Lamar

Charles Bradley and Kendrick Lamar

I woke up and was on a mission to see and do as much as possible. I started my day with the panel “Brands Are Music Fans Too.” This revolved around the concept of artists finding organic connections with brands and creating a mutually beneficial working partnership. After that panel was over I headed to […]

SKATERS Live at Mohawk

SKATERS Live at Mohawk

The entirety of the two-tiered outdoor section at Mohawk in Austin was jam packed on Thursday, March 14th.The rustic venue boasts a 21X16 outdoor stage as well as a smaller indoor stage. Fans crowded together on the wooden floor of the outdoor stage and leaned over the railings of the roof deck to see the New York-based trio, Skaters. […]

Butch Walker Live at Central Presbytarian Church

Butch Walker Live at Central Presbytarian Church

Around one hundred and fifty people sat in the pews at the Central Presbytarian Church as Butch Walker took the stage last night, but they did not stay seated for long. The singer-songwriter stepped out onto the altar solo and took his place behind the piano. Walker kicked off the set with “ATL”, a moving […]

Touring KUT and Downtown Austin

Touring KUT and Downtown Austin

Day 2 of SXSW was an interesting one. After a morning of panels and free lunches we got to have some great conversations about the current state of radio. We toured the KUT station on the University of Texas and got insight on how other stations run. The facilities were great and it inspired me […]

Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players

Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players

The second night of SXSW had perhaps the biggest thrill of my live music-attending career. This years keynote speaker, Dave Grohl, took to the stage at Stubb’s with his new project Sound City. This group of Grohl’s “heroes” was brought together when the Foo Fighter was making his documentary about the Sound City recording studio […]

Cold War Kids at Clive Bar

Cold War Kids at Clive Bar

As of last night, I have seen Cold War Kids live four times in three different states. From the first night I saw them I was completely taken aback by their vigorous live energy. It’s infectious nature permeates the crowd whether you’re at a sold out House of Blues in Boston or closing out a […]

Natalie Maines and Dawes at the Moody Theater

Natalie Maines and Dawes at the Moody Theater

I’ll probably get killed for this, but one of the coolest things I saw on our first night at SXSW happened during the Natalie Maines set. As you might know, Maines is the former frontwoman on The Dixie Chicks but has branched off on her own since then. The band really sounded nothing like her […]

Butch Walker at SXSW

Butch Walker at SXSW

I came down to Austin without a set schedule. I figured I would just go wherever, hang out with different people and be exposed to different music as a result. There was just one thing that I absolutely had to do: meet Butch Walker. Butch Walker is a singer-songwriter, the front man of Butch Walker […]
