coastmodern@ZackTeibloom When we caught Oberhofer’s 11 pm show Tuesday night at Nomad, Caitlin and I thought we had a pretty tame SXSW week ahead of us. After being wow’d by the band we loved so much at SXSW ’14 we saw them three times in the same day, we had the traditional brownie sundae and queso at midnight at Kerby Lane to celebrate Caitlin turning 29. We went to sleep expecting a tamer SXSW, since we wouldn’t have a badge this year, but woke up to news we had two badges waiting for us at the convention center. Happy birthday to us. We then sought out a few favorites we found from our pre-festival hunting. Caitlin had turned me onto Coast Modern and Aurora (who I also knew from their music being played often in the bathrooms at Apple) and I turned her on to PWR BTTM. So we went and saw them. And then we loved them so much we saw them again. And again. We ended up seeing Coast Modern four days in a row and meeting them. We saw Oberhofer twice more, saw PWR BTTM three times in two days and saw Aurora’s first two festival appearances and wished we saw more.

In this post, I’ll write up the little things I noticed seeing these wonderful bands at the early stages of their careers day after day. The little things you can only get from tons of exposure to intimate shows. Things like: why is Brad Oberhofer testing out the sturdiness of tables behind the stage before he goes on? Who is the girl in the crowd signaling one more song to the rest of the band? What does it take for Aurora to feel comfortable taking her jacket off to dance? What song will the crowd think is over before Coast Modern wows them with their powerful closer? What is PWR BTTM looking for in Austin and what do they have a crippling fear of? All this and more on why you should fall in love with these bands…
