One More SXSW Note/Dickinson AND Dulli!!!

Hey all. i just got back from the Rob Dickinson show at Southpaw here in Brooklyn which was bloody brilliant. It was a wonderful mix of songs from Rob's excellent solo album Fresh Wine for the Horses, which we covered in our end of the year wrap-up last December, as well as some Catherine Wheel favorites. Those classics included some Happy Days-centric goodness ("Heal", "Little Muscle", and a personal fave of mine, "Eat My Dust You Insensitive Fuck") as well as "Crank", "Delicious", "All of That" and, closing the show out, "Black Metallic." It was really more than everyone could have asked for. I even heard my favorite solo cut- "Oceans." Do go out and get that album if you haven't already. After the show the very friendly Mr. Dickinson stuck around for at least an hour taking pictures and signing CDs. He was wonderfully appreciative of the fans.

Down in Austin next week Rob will be on stage at 9:30 pm, just before the The Twilight Singers, Thursday, March 16th at 9:30 p.m. at Friends (208 E 6th St). He will also be doing a meet-and-greet/signing the same day at the Borders/SXSW Book Store at 3:30 pm (in the Music Trade Show on the Upper Level of the Austin Convention Center).

P.S. Yes, seeing one of my high-school favorites did make me feel old...and I don't care!

Rob Dickinson's "My Name Is Love" is available on the SXSW band site HERE.

The solo record is growing on me.

im a huge CW fan, but I really cant get into the solo album. Sounds like a good show.

I see Destroyer, EELS, and Neko Case in your rotation and I must provide you with plenty of mad props.

The solo album was definately an adjustment but at the heart of his music- RD has always been a ver good lyricist. And I likes me lyrics.

P.S. Thanks to steve for "mad props"- we hope you find something else you might enjoy, or so is our aim!
