Every year, for the last forever, we’ve teamed up with our frienemies over at Side One Track One to throw a great big Austin party on the Sunday before SXSW music gets going. It’s a celebration of Austin acts…something of great importance to us…as the rest of the city is about to get swept up in whatever the next big thing is. Plus, John at SOTO is the curator at 101x Homegrown, so you know he knows his stuff…and rumor has it that we run a label…so maybe that’s cool too? The party takes place Sunday, March 15th over at Hotel Vegas; this year we’ve got a wide variety from Mobley to Lola Tried to Blood to Zettajoule to BLXPLTN…and so many more.

Oh snap! New Suckers! Man, we absolutely love this band; we’ve probably seen them a combined 25-30 times, and we’ll get another chance when they grace us with their presence at our SXSW Party. But, more importantly, the band has a new record coming out on Frenchkiss Records on April 24th titled Candy Salad. This first listen is a solid track, just as we expected, but it indicates a whole lot of focus from the band, seemingly reigning in some of their spontaneity. Feel sure that the band’s got more great songs up their sleeve, and as an early indicator, this one definitely makes me happy!
