Mynabirds, UUVVWWZ to play Saddle Creek SXSW showcase; Dim Light tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 6:34 pm February 4, 2010

It’s only the beginning of February, but I’m already making plans for the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, which isn’t until March 17. Yesterday, Jason Kulbel at Saddle Creek Records told me that his label will again host a showcase at the event. The deets:

Location: Maggie Mae’s Gibson Room
Thursday, March 18

10 p.m. The Mynabirds
11 p.m. UUVVWWZ
12 a.m. Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson
1 a.m. The Rural Alberta Advantage

SXSW has filled in the earlier part of the evening with the following Nicodemus Agency bands:

7:30 – 8:00 p.m.: Common Loon
8:15 – 8:45 p.m.: Unwed Sailor

Last year I missed the Creek showcase as I was making a concerted effort to avoid all the bands that I see on a regular basis ’round these parts — what’s the point of going to Austin if you’re going to see bands that always play in Omaha? In the end, I still saw Cursive play a couple times at other day shows. Without a doubt, all of the Creek bands will be playing numerous times throughout this year’s four-day foray. Seriously, can you ever get too much of The Mynabirds?

Other Omaha acts confirmed for SXSW this year include Thunder Power, Digital Leather and It’s True, though I don’t know where any of them will be playing. More details as I get them.

It’s an evening of dark wave/goth/gloom tonight at The Waiting Room with Strap On Halo, Dim Light and Blue Rosa. $7, 9 p.m. Don’t be afraid of the snow.
