SXSW 2014: Pop, Dance and Nerdcore

Posted By on Wed, Mar 12, 2014 at 5:00 PM

MC Lars: Nerdcore Master

I had a better first night than poor Casey Dewey: No travel hassles, easy check in and then it was off to races. Started out at the Fader Fort, where pretty girls carried trays of Blue Hawaiians for the guests and Charlie XCX kicked off the show with her up-and-coming pop-rock, including a fun cover of "I Want Candy." She was followed by the dazzling Chromeo, who combined dance rock with a hypnotic light show. From there, I entered the mouth of madness along Sixth Street and caught a nerdcore show by MC Lars with shout-outs to the likes of Bruce Campbell and Edgar Allen Poe. Had a few confusing hits and misses with a shows afterwards until I finished the evening with some ol' fashioned guitar and drums with Grape St.
