the Minus 5 @ Continental Club they confirmed the M5 line-up, so no surprises...right?
Eagles of Death Metal @ Exodus i hate Queens, love this band
the Capes @ Dirty Dog Bar supposed art rock is the new brit top 40
Black Lipstick @ Latitude 360 most memorable sxsw show: the 1-4-5's last show ever. here's their evolution
Damien Jurado @ Redrum close out the night in a somber mood
Thunderbirds Are Now! @ Soho Lounge or end it drunk and sweaty

this night is disappointing on several levels. it's the night of the Bloodshot Records showcase. that was always the highlight of sxsw after their daytime barbeque party. it was where i saw not only a moving Sally Timms set, but a Kelly Hogan set that reduced me to near tears. this year there's nothing about their line-up that immediately grabs me. equally disappointing is the Kill Rock Stars showcase. meanwhile Stubbs is housing the absolute worst show with Nickel Creek, the Dresden Dolls, Gomez and the Fiery Furnaces.

Stars of Track and Field "With You"
Rocky Votolato "Tinfoil Hats"
Black Lipstick "No Mercy"
Man Man "Black Mission Goggles"
Metal Hearts "Socialize"
