sat. march 18, 2006

come saturday you've probably seen no less than fifteen bands and that's even if you haven't been boozing it up at free parties throughout the day. thankfully saturday starts with a whimper, allowing you a moment to catch your breath. the big to-do this night would probably be the merge showcase that sees both Superchunk and Robert Pollard taking the stage. let's see what else is worth checking out that night.

8:00 pm
Mascott @ the 18th Floor at Capitol Place former contributor to Stars does sophisticated pop

9:00 pm
Jose Gonzales @ Eternal second chance to see the popular swede

10:00 pm
the Essex Green @ Antones rollicking retro pop and a new album
Susanna Huff and Matthew Sweet @ the Drink so basically half the austin powers band
Pink Mountaintops @ Emo's Annex the other side of the Black Mountain
Aberfeldy @ Karma Lounge due for a follow-up to their amazing debut
Jason Collett @ Momo's broken social guitarist whose solo stuff i prefer
Jon Langford @ Opal Devine's Freehouse

11:00 pm
Superchunk @ Antones i guess the hiatus is over
I Love You but I've Choosen Darkness @ Emo's Annex one of the best locals at sxsw
Martha Wainwright @ Eternal the best of the family wainwright may be the least obvious

my name is Koen and I'm from Belgium, Europe. I came to your blog through a link to José Gonzáles' version of "Teardrops", but I can't find it anywhere. Could you please post it to my mailbox:
Thanks a lot!
