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…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Eric Clapton + SXSW Overflow + Sustainable Living Fest + Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside + More

On the road again today — Sat., March 16th — but I’ll try to get a quick post in while the wife oh-so/kindly drives (ah, smartphones & wives are awesome…). Here we go: Eric Clapton/The Wallflowers @ Toyota Center What can I say? I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t go see Clapton if […]

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…

(UPDATED) Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Willie Nelson + SXSW Overflow + More

Dang. It isn’t often, lately, that I end up writing up what all’s going on on a freaking Sunday, but here we are, and tonight, March 10th, is looking pretty good. A lot of things are ongoing already, unfortunately — and it kills me that I blew mentioning the {Jandek} show earlier tonight at St. Paul’s Methodist Church

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

SXSW Overflow: Day Twelve/Thirteen (Kaade, ElectroFoam!, Hurricanes of Love, MTPOTSBWY, & More)

It’s kind of a light day today, for Day Twelve of SXSW Overflow Fest at Super Happy Fun Land, so I’m going to go buck-wild crazy and do two days’ worth of writeups, all at once…

SXSW Overflow: Day Eleven (SPORTS, Brown Shoe, Sofia Talvik, Each Other, Jack of Hearts, & More)

Yep, it’s Monday, March 19th, and here we are, back again with Day Eleven(!) of this year’s SXSW Overflow Fest — as always, hosted over at Super Happy Fun Land, otherwise known as the quirkiest/neatest venue in town…

SXSW Overflow: Day 10, Pt. 2 (Fenster, Vio/Miré, Tamarin, The Gallery, The Shivas, & The Photo Atlas)

sigh. Running behind again, seemingly as always… Here’s Pt. 2 of the writeups for tonight’s (Sunday, March 18th) SXSW Overflow Fest lineup over at Super Happy Fun Land. You’ve already missed the first several bands, I’m afraid, but there’re still some very cool bands to go…

SXSW Overflow: Day Ten, Pt. 1 (Hugo, Marvin and the Cloud Wall, Glory Days, & Eric Jennings)

Back up in the city proper now, so I’m back onto the SXSW Overflow Fest writeups, for all the bands playing tomorrow night, Sunday, March 18th, up at Super Happy Fun Land. It’s been quite a run so far, and it’s still rolling on strong…

Yr. (Belated) Weekend: St. Patty’s at Fitz + Southern Backtones + Andrew W.K. + Dana Buoy (MP3!) + Emmure + More

What can I say, y’all? It’s been a hell of a month over here, and this weekend’s just another to add to the pile…sigh. I’d planned to post this weekend’s writeups, plus a heartfelt post about today’s KTRU Outdoor Show

SXSW Overflow: Day Eight/Nine (Katie Grace, Ghost & Gobin, Teen Girl Scientist Monthly, Hillfolk Noir, Moonlight Bride, & More)

I’m going to be away from the laptop for a while this weekend, so this is going to have to be a twofer for the ongoing writeups of the ever-cool SXSW Overflow Fest up at Super Happy Fun Land

SXSW Overflow: Day Seven (The Great ’85, Clapperclaw, Take One Car, Weekend Pilots, & More)

On to Thursday, March 15th, aka Day Seven of the 2012 edition of Super Happy Fun Land‘s SXSW Overflow Fest, and when things start up again tonight at 7PM

SXSW Overflow: Day Six (Lost Coves, Grandpa Egg, Christopher Paul Stelling, & More)

The list’s a little lighter today, but damn, I’m beginning to have some serious misgivings about tackling all these; not that it’s not neat to listen to all these bands, and some of ’em — Mittenfields, Dustin Wong, The Ugly Club

SXSW Overflow: Day Five (The Back Pockets, The Ugly Club, Wheelchair Sports Camp, Andy D, & More)

Alrighty, now the lineups are starting to get heavy over at Super Happy Fun Land‘s SXSW Overflow Fest — and early, to boot, starting at, um, 3:30PM today, as in an hour or two ago…

SXSW Overflow: Day Four (Dope Body, Dustin Wong, Mittenfields, Backwords, & More)

Argh. Dammit, scrambling again, on Day Four (Monday, March 12th, to be precise) of SXSW Overflow Fest over at Super Happy Fun Land. sigh. I swear, one of these damn days…

SXSW Overflow: Day Three (Gang of Thieves, Hume, Part Time, Xmas, & Warmouth)

Well, crud. Three days in, and already I’m blowing it with the Super Happy Fun Land SXSW Overflow Fest writeups. sigh. We’re on to Sunday, March 11th, now, and Day Three of the fest…

SXSW Overflow 2012: Day Two (A Stick and a Stone, Midday Veil, Standing Shadows, & The Depaysement)

On to Day Two of this year’s SXSW Overflow Fest over at Super Happy Fun Land; still ramping up somewhat, with only a handful of bands playing (as opposed to, say, Tuesday, when there’re 13)…
