SXSW Overflow 2014: Day Six (The Littlest Viking, Sit Kitty Sit, & Drop Tank)

Yes, yes, yes. Here we are now at Day Six of the still-rolling-onwards SXSW Overflow Fest going on through next week (yes, a week later than SXSW itself) over at Ye Olde Land of the Super Happy Fun. Like last night, tonight’s a little sparse, surprisingly, in part because would-be headliners Jumpship Astronaut are no longer on the bill…

SXSW Overflow 2014: Day Five (Bam Bam and the Gigolos, Even The Dogs, Redrick Sultan, All Eyes West, & Vandella)

Here we are again, folks, for Day Five of SXSW Overflow Fest 2014 up in the scruffy edge of Downtown where Super Happy Fun Land lives. Tonight — Thursday, March 13th, if you don’t have a calendar handy — is looking a little lighter than the previous nights, but there’s still a fair number of folks on the bill; it’ll just start at 9PM or so this evening, as opposed to 5PM on the earlier evenings…

SXSW Overflow 2014: Day Four (After Nations, Take One Car, Jacob Latham, The Hat Madder, jungles!!!, Doomsquad, & More)

Alright, people — heading into Day Four of Super Happy Fun Land‘s supremely fun SXSW Overflow Fest 2014, and it’s definitely rolling, with more and more bands from far-flung places being packed onto the bill. Before I get into it, though, I’d be remiss if I didn’t at least briefly mention…

SXSW Overflow 2014: Day Three (Small Houses, Koo Koo Kanga Roo, Hawk and Dove, Dylan Taylor Band, White City, Hollis Brown, & More)

Trying to keep things moving on with our SCR coverage of the always-awesome SXSW Overflow Fest up at Super Happy Fun Land, so it’s on to Day Three of the festivities. As I noted before, this thing is cheap, cheap, cheap, a measly $8 per night or $24 for the whole damn deal; that amount of money won’t get you real far up in Austin right now…

SXSW Overflow 2014: Day, Er, Two (Rachel Kate, Lion in The Mane, Stuyvesant, Overlake, Autumn Electric, Dear Blanca, & Masonjar Menagerie)

Alrighty, people — yes, it’s that time of year when music/movie/tech insanity grips tight onto the throat/ears/brain of our sister city to the northwest, Austin, TX, and refuses to let go ’til it, um, stops breathing or something. Our own Jason Smith is up there now, naturally, trying to not kill himself while simultaneously attempting to see every band imaginable; check out his very handy preview up over here and be enlightened…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Vacation Eyes + Mydolls + SXSW Overflow 2013 + SCN Zine Release + Devil Killing Moth + More

Moving slow as usual; this week was a bear at work and at home, unfortunately, so I’m still catching up. Some good stuff’s happening tonight, Friday, March 22nd, though, so don’t miss out, eh? Here goes…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day Fourteen, At Long Last (The Witherees, Flux Bikes, Skyline FiftyFour, & Another Pearl Harbor)

Well, here we are, people; it’s Friday, March 22nd, the final night of SXSW Overflow 2013 at Super Happy Fun Land, after which you’ll have to sit on your hands ’til this time next year…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day Thirteen (Stanley and the Search, Alien Knife Fight, & Dead Mineral)

Almost done, y’all — tonight, Thursday, March 21st, happens to be the penultimate night of this year’s SXSW Overflow Fest up at Super Happy Fun Land, so if you haven’t yet made it out, go, go, go…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day Twelve (Vox Vocis, Kids From Nowhere, Pocket Vinyl, & Si Mori)

Well, damn. I just looked at today’s SXSW Overflow Fest schedule on the Super Happy Fun Land site, and lo and behold…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day Eleven (The Dirty Seeds, Sugar Bayou, HolySexyBastards, & Pocket Vinyl)

Alright, so things appear to be slowing down for this year’s SXSW Overflow Fest, sadly; it’s now Day Eleven of the insanity, and there’re only four bands on the bill…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day Ten (Embers In Ashes, Our Sky Is Falling, Suns, Vampirates, Har-di-Har, die geister beschworen, & More)

Yep, it’s Day Ten of the cool-ass SXSW Overflow Fest shenanigans going on at Super Happy Fun Land, despite the fact that, um, I’m pretty sure SXSW itself is actually over…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: St. Patrick’s Day at the Mucky Duck + The Dead Rabbits + The Zombies + The Skatalites + George Strait + More

Ouch. I am sunburned and in pain, with a back that’s been tweaked over a week spent flying and driving and chasing children and sleeping in unfamiliar beds, and I’m ready to sit down and hang out at the house for a while. Today, however, there’s quite a bit of awesomeness happening…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day Nine (The Jarheads, The Horde & The Harem, Schwervon!, Next 2 the Tracks, All the Apparatus, & Alex Vans & The Hide Away)

Alright, so it’s a little bit lighter tonight up at the SXSW Overflow Fest at Super Happy Fun Land, but don’t take that to mean that it won’t be a good show…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day Eight (The Bengsons, Jonathan Warren & The Billy Goats, Irene & The Sleepers, sami.the.great, Lost Weekend, & More)

Yep, trying to keep up with the ever-excellent SXSW Overflow Fest over at The Land of the Super Happy Fun. Tomorrow — Saturday, March 16th — is Day Eight of the festivities, with 14(!) left to go, which is both awesome and extremely demoralizing…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Tegan & Sara/Local Natives + Bernie Worrell + Black Congress + SXSW Overflow + More

Damn. Feels like I missed out on a whole lot of awesome stuff this week, being out of town (and not in Austin, sadly); I’m currently attempting to make up for lost time & get back into the swing of things, so bear with me, eh? There’s some excellent shows happening tonight, Friday, March 15th — here’s what I think looks cool…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day Seven (Charles Ellsworth, Yusif!, Pillage & Plunder, Tom Blacklung and the Smokestacks, Big Mess, Kal Marks, & More)

phew. Hey, folks — I’m back in town and online. And holy crap, does it feel like I missed a lot; apologies for not updating from the road, but I was so exhausted in the evenings (chasing a hyperactive 3-year-old around is no picnic, especially when he refuses to nap and has a cold) I mostly just crashed out…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day Two, Pt. 2 (The Bottom Dollars, DRGN KING, Cheers Elephant, The Nuclears, & Deathrow Tull)

Alrighty, back again to at least try to cram a few more of tonight’s bands up at Super Happy Fun Land‘s SXSW Overflow festival; still looking at tonight, Sunday, March 10th, y’all. Here we go once more…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day Two, Pt. 1 (Roomrunner, New Sweden, Walking Shapes, Grown Up Avenger Stuff, Chateau Nowhere, & Small Houses)

And here we are, y’all, looking forward to Day Two of the SXSW Overflow festival over at Super Happy Fun Land. Tomorrow, on Sunday, March 10th, there’s a ridiculously impressive lineup on the bill, with pretty much something for everybody…

SXSW Overflow 2013: Day One (Time and Distance, Hip Hatchet, Otonana Trio, & Friend Roulette)

Damn. I have to say, this year SXSW crept up on me even more than it usually does; I’ve been pretty distracted with personal- and work-related stuff lately, so much so that until Jason Smith

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: ZenHill Night + George Clinton + SXSW Overflow + Folk Family Revival + More

Yep, it’s Friday, March 9th, heading into the weekend — a little late, I know, but heck, there’s plenty still going on. Here goes…

SXSW Overflow 2012, Tonight at SHFL: Day One (Sphynx, Galaxy Express, & Les Racquet)

Ah, yes. It’s March, that wonderful time of year when about a bazillion people cram into the confines of our prettier-than-us sister city to the northwest, all getting sweaty and drunk and deaf with one another while every band you’ve ever heard of plays somewhere

SXSW Overflow 2011: Last Day! (Mal Blum, Zoe Boekbinder, Space Capone, & East Cackalacky Ascetic Marching Death Band)

Well, damn. I’d thought tonight (Wed., March 23rd) was going to only be the final-night-plus-one of the Super Happy Fun Land SXSW Overflow Fest extravaganza, but now I’m looking at the SHFL calendar…

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day Fourteen (Apollo 18, Vigilante, Alex Anderson Band, & Vampirates)

Man…falling behind yet again, dammit. See, this is the bad part about working on a computer all day for the Day Job — the last thing I want to do is try to come up with yet more words on a screen…

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day Thirteen (Visions, Grass Is Green, Mr. Free & The Satellite Freakout!, National Reserve, & More)

Gah. Back again, y’all, at least briefly. Took a wee bit of a vacation last week and then ended up hanging out in the emergency room last night when I should have been quick-fast writing up Sunday’s shows, but now I’m kinda-sorta back on my feet…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: football, etc. (Reviewed!) + Koffin Kats + Fat Tony + SXSW Overflow + Sean Reefer + More

Apologies (as always) for the lateness of this one; spent the last two days having Family Time at the Rodeo (where I had to attempt to explain the origin of the St. Patrick’s Day holiday to an annoyed South African carny) & out at the Blue Bell factory in Brenham (which I’d never been to before)…

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day Nine (Archimedes, Watch Out!, Golden Time, This City Defects, & More)

Okay, so we’re coming up on Day 9 of Super Happy Fun Land‘s SXSW Overflow Fest, and the lineups are definitely getting lengthier; I’m going to try to write up everybody on the bill…

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day Eight (Dog Day, SGNLS, GreyMarket, Secret Society in Smaller Lies, & More)

Another day (Day 8, to be precise) of the Super Happy Fun Land SXSW Overflow Fest, and here’s another slew of bands, some very cool, some decent, and some eh

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day Seven (Rooftop Vigilantes, Secret Mountains, Country Mice, Chris Bathgate, & More)

Day 7 of the SXSW Overflow Fest at Super Happy Fun Land, and eh, I can’t even come up with anything witty to say about the thing in general, except that the bills are getting better and better…

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day Six (Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt, Aficionado, Janka Nabay, The Demon Beat, & More)

Six days in, and god-knows-how-many to go… Next installment of the Super Happy Fun Land SXSW Overflow Fest tonight, and things are looking a bit busier than they have up to this point; see here for the evening’s full schedule…

Yr. (Very Late) Weekend, Pt. 3: Joe Mathlete + SXSW Overflow Fest + Tyagaraja + Hadag Nahash + Blackguard + More

Late, late, late, again, and I know some of the show-type things have slipped past; sorry about that, y’all… I really, truly meant to mention {Chris Becker}‘s Music for Silent Films deal at FrenetiCore

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day Five (Shark?, Standing Shadows, & MiniBoone)

Alright, so while I’m homebound, I figured it’d make at least a little sense to go ahead and get the lineup for tomorrow’s (Sunday, March 13th) Super Happy Fun Land SXSW Overflow Fest out of the way… Yet another light bill…

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day Four (Megan Jean and The KFB, Joe and the Jungle, 28 North, & Pearl and the Band)

Late, late, late on these, I know — sorry, had to deal with sick family members & sleep-deprived kids and was only briefly able to get online ’til now. But hey, there’s still time to get on over to Super Happy Fun Land for Day Four

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: South By Due East + Ryan Scroggins + Hell City Kings + The Lion of Wall Street + More

Kind of a slow-ish Friday tonight (March 11th, to be exact), which has me a little nervous that I’ve missed some big-ass show or another somewhere out there, but unfortunately, I just haven’t had time to look this week. sigh

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day Three (Ugly Elephant & Shut Up Sidney)

Okay, so I’ve lucked out yet again; utterly swamped & out of time all this week, and lo and behold, here comes another relatively-light day of the SXSW Overflow Fest over at Super Happy Fun Land

Yr. Early-Brief Weekend: Future In Stereo + GOBBLE GOBBLE (Rev’d!) + Bare Wires (MP3) + Ragged Hearts + More

Yeah, so I know the What Cheer? Brigade set at the SXSW Overflow Fest isn’t the only thing going tonight (Thurs., March 10th), but dammit, I’ve gotta keep this brief…

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day Two (What Cheer? Brigade, Vockah Redu, & The C-4 Band)

Day #2 of the Super Happy Fun Land SXSW Overflow Fest, and yes, here I am, back again to tell you all about (okay, some about) who the hell’s playing tonight…

SXSW Overflow 2011: Day One (Driftless Pony Club & Heresy Theory)

Yep, it’s Day One of the Super Happy Fun Land SXSW Overflow Fest, and I have to admit, I’m kinda glad it’s a relatively “light” one…

SXSW Overflow Starts This Week at the Super Happy

Yep, it’s that time again, the middle of March, when all kinds of bands come to town, bands that wouldn’t ever end up here otherwise. No, I’m not talking about that thing up in Austin, but about the now-annual SXSW Overflow Fest that’s going on at Super Happy Fun Land
