Friday night was just right @SXSW

metallicas@ZackTeibloom Another night of perfect timing. I didn’t get to the festival until 5:30, but I made up for lost time. I stumbled into a face-melting extravaganza at a tiny stage where J Mascis was sitting in with a band I’ve never heard of.

They sounded like The Hue likes to dream they’ll one day sound. 45 minutes of uninterrupted vocal free madness that rocked too much for one hand. The crowd was simply stunned.

I moved over to the Fader Fort Levi party where I accidentally saw Tinted Windows, a band I’d been insanely curious about. This “super group” features James Iha of Smashing Pumpkins and Taylor Hanson of, yes, Hanson. Shockingly good. Chalk it up to repetition theory.

From there I moved on to Stubbs for Metallica and a good old fashioned rock show. I got nice and wild in the pit and finally saw why Blake worships them so much. I caught Doug Benson and Todd Barry’s hilarious comedy sets at the Velveeta Room, met up with Ezra Furman and his new guitarist and took them back to my apt. to listen to records and drink Sparks.

Full reviews and stories coming soon, but there’s still so much more festival. Tonight supposedly has a performance by Kanye, more Yelle and, I’m sure, something amazing I don’t even know about yet. Rock on.
