SXSW recap/ Awesome Band Alert (sxsw edition)

yosoholius.  So sxsw is over, and we are still reeling from it.  Having to take a week off here in Houston so everyone can attend to some personal stuff.  Trying to remember all the shit that we got into.  Here's what i can remember on first thought:
Wednesday:  Roll into town... Rock @ Emo's Annex.  This was probably our best show of the week.  We got the chance to party with different buddies all week long and it started just as we got here.  (Jucifer, Priestess, the Bronx.)  Saw Jucifer play, then we rocked, then we loaded our shit, and then we watched Priestess play.  I have to say their new songs are badass.  Especially "lady killer".  Then we watched the Bronx kill it over @ Red 7.  The next day is such a blur of blown eardrums and sore feet, that ill spare you the details of everything and just give you a list of the complete shows that i saw.
Thursday:  Ironworks BBQ!!  Skeletonwitch.  Avett Brothers.  walk 3 miles.  Roky Erickson!  walk 2 miles.  Radio Moscow.  the Entrance Band.  Flower Travelin' Band!!!  walk 1 mile.  Annihilation Time.  Early Man.
Friday:  I can't even really remember a lot of what was going on this morning, but i do know that I made my way over to see Earthless play w/ J Mascis on extra guitar.  This (unbeknownst to me at the time) was blowing out my fucking eardrums.  They jammed so goddamned hard, and my ears were ringing for over an hour later.  Best thing I saw really.  Hmmm...  Then sometime later we played @ a gay bar.  It was rad, but totally unorganized.  Then we partied it up some more w/ skeletonwitch and all the dude bands over at red 7.
Saturday:  We played a party early style w/ like a round robin setup.  One of the bands scheduled to play apparently went to jail, so our buddies in Golden Error got to play.  And the other bands were Team Robespierre, Cerebral Ballzy, and She Rides.  And somehow after that, we got out of town in time to make it to Houston to see Skeletonwitch yet again w/ Black Tusk, and Kylesa.  So.  My brains are fried.  Just purchased the new Extra Golden cd.
Thanx to all of our friends in every band we saw like Black Skies, and Colossus, and everyone else.  Extra Special thanx to Jeff Hammett and his family for putting us up.  More and More And More soon.
