The Boxing Lesson @SXSW

boxinglesson@ZackTeibloom The security guard at Maggie Mae’s wouldn’t let me in the venue with my cooler bag full of Sparks and Festival Crashing supplies, so I had to run back to my car, chug a Sparks, and load my pockets for the day.

Back at Maggie Mae’s at ten to 1, I scan the three stages to find The Boxing Lesson for my 1:00 interview. I caught their last two songs, one of which far surpassed anything from their performance Friday at Emo’s.

Lead singer/guitar player Paul Waclawsky’s nasty solos coupled with Jaylinn Davidson’s intricate Synth keyboard fed their “psychedelic, progressive, leaning toward space rock” feel.

At least that’s how Waclawsky described his sound. Half the time they rip it up, but they can be hit or miss. Their last song didn’t leave a great taste in my mouth, but I’d definitely see them again. They do have seven more shows this SXSW and they’re an Austin band, so I figure I’ll see them often whether I want to or not. 7.3/10

Andy- can we start calling that Umphery’s theory? (I know we usually choose to see Umphrey’s, but there were at least a half a dozen times I saw them over the years just because they were around and cheap.
