A Quiet SXSW…

Category: Blog — @ 6:52 pm March 21, 2006

An afternoon update today because I was finishing a column about The Faint, which will go online tomorrow morning (and look for an Edith Frost interview/feature Thursday morning).

Not much news today, anyway. In the aftermath of SXSW, sounds like Saddle Creek’s Two Gallants made an impression on the masses, at least according to this San Jose Mercury News item. The writer called the band “one of the most exciting and unique acts I’ve seen this week.” Other than that item, coverage of Omaha-related bands at the event was all but nonexistent. On a side note, The AP filed an interesting interview with Barsuk’s Josh Rosenfeld, where he talks about the value of the SXSW, underscoring what everyone knows — no one goes to Austin to sign bands anymore. Those days are long gone.

Underground hip-hop acts P.O.S., Mac Lethal and Sims at Sokol Underground tonight. 9 p.m., $7.
