I’m flying to Houston on Wednesday night and then driving to Austin on Thursday morning. I’ll stay there a few days to enjoy the SXSW festivities. I’m cheap so I don’t have a badge or anything. I’m just going to stick with the free shows during the day.  I probably won’t get to see any music until after 1:00 PM on Thursday; I’ll be too busy waiting in line to get wristbands for IFC Crossroads House and Fader Fort. Here’s what I’ve got planned for Thursday:

Yuck – 1:30 PM @ Flamingo Cantina (515 E. 6th Street) – Under The Radar Party (no RSVP)

Telekinesis – 2:20 PM @ Mohawk (912 Red River Street) – Billions Day Party (no RSVP)

The Lonely Forest – 3:00 PM @ Klub Krucial – Trumer Pils Afternoon Social (no RSVP)

The Joy Formidable – 3:15 PM @ The Parish (214 E. 6th Street) – NPR Party (no RSVP)

The Antlers – 4:00 PM @ The Parish (214 E. 6th Street) – NPR Party (no RSVP)

Savoir Adore – 4:30 PM @ Valhalla (710 Red River Street) – Buzzgrinder Party (no RSVP)

Ted Leo – 5:30 PM @ French Legation (802 San Marcos Street) – Other Music Lawn Party (No RSVP)

Sondre Lerche – 6:00 PM @ The Liberty (1618 1/2 E. 6th Street) – Waynestock (No RSVP)

Like every month there are a bunch of shows I want to go. I tried to limit myself this month but it was hard:

  • April 8, 2010 – Deer Tick, Those Darlins @ Bottom Lounge
  • April 9, 2010 – Japandroids @ Lincoln Hall
  • April 12, 2010 – The Morning Benders @ Schubas
  • April 17, 2010 – Rogue Wave @ Lincoln Hall
  • April 22, 2010 – The Antlers @ Lincoln Hall
  • April 25, 2010 – White Rabbits, Here We Go Magic @ Metro

April 8, 2010 – Deer Tick, Those Darlins @ Bottom Lounge

I’ve seen Deer Tick once before. They played with Dawes at Empty Bottle last year. I really enjoyed that show despite not knowing much of their catalog. Since then, I’ve become a big fan so I’d like to see them now that I am more familiar with their songs. I’ve never seen Those Darlins but I’ve been wanting to see them for a while now; sadly I did not see them at SXSW. Moreover, I’ll probably end up going to this show because Bottom Lounge is just a few blocks from my apartment. That place rarely seems to get good shows now but when they do happen, I have to take advantage.

April 9, 2010 – Japandroids @ Lincoln Hall

An awesome band playing one of my favorite venues in the city. I saw Japandroids at SXSW and was really impressed. Those guys have tons of energy. I can’t even imagine how awesome this show will be. Japandroids on a Friday night, it’s going to be intense.

April 12, 2010 – The Morning Benders @ Schubas

Saw maybe two songs of these guys at SXSW. I have barely heard any of their music but everyone says they are awesome. Not sure if I’ll actually make it to this one but it could be fun.

April 17, 2010 – Rogue Wave @ Lincoln Hall

I listened to these guys a lot in anticipation of SXSW and I actually saw them at Red Eyed Fly. I was a little too far back to really enjoy that show so I’d like to see them again.

April 22, 2010 – The Antlers @ Lincoln Hall

Mike told me about these guys. I have listened to their album a few times. There are two songs on there that I really like. When it comes to shows at Lincoln Hall, that’s all it takes to get me to go.

April 25, 2010 – White Rabbits, Here We Go Magic @ Metro

Never seen White Rabbits before but I really like their latest CD, It’s Frightening. I have no idea how they’ll be live. I don’t think I’ve heard anything by Here We Go Magic. Michelle likes them so they can’t be that bad, right?
