Dewey Does Austin: On the Eve of SXSW

Posted By on Tue, Mar 12, 2013 at 2:42 PM

By the time you've read this, I will have already have boarded a train to Austin, Texas for SXSW. I have a laptop full of Walter Hill movies, spaghetti westerns and more than a fistful of tunes for the 24-hour trek.

This will be my second time out there, and like I did last year, I'll be updating the We Got Cactus blog daily with dispatches from my adventures. And, if everything pans out, this year I'll also be including some interviews.

If you want further ramblings, albeit sometimes a bit more profane and off the cuff, you can follow me on Twitter: I'm @Dewtron. You can also follow the #tucsonweekly hashtag.

Some bands I look forward to checking out while I'm there - Action Bronson, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Iggy and the Stooges, Audacity, Fidlar, Nu Sensae, The Shrine, Maserati, Pissed Jeans, Pyyramids, Wo Fat, Thee Oh Sees, Flatbush Zombies, Death, RZA, Bestial Mouths, Hunters, BOAN, Xander Harris and a whole lot more.

Over and out!

Rise

Alex Soto grips his microphone.

Growing Old with Moz

Screw the Clash. The jocks and popular kids had already ruined “the only band that matters” by playing Combat Rock to death before I could even get my learner’s permit. It fell to a different gang of British lads to soundtrack my teens: The Smiths.

Little Girls Understand

Punk band Zeke formed in Seattle back in '92, around the time the city's music was exploding internationally.

In the Moment

Spread across Austin Counts' new record are songs of jealousy, sin and heartache, scenes of jail cells and barrooms, and if you look hard enough, even a bit of redemption.

Energy is Anger

Otep Shamaya—frontwoman, songwriter and concept-creator with the band that bears her name—is fired up.
