White Denim, Harlem, Built By Snow. Antones.

So, you had a bit of a music overload during SXSW this year, but that doesn't mean Austin's gonna stop y'all. There's a GREAT, cheap show over at, the legendary, Antone's tomorrow night. It's going to be a who's who of Austin pop and garage-rock.

Local heroes, White Denim will be sharing a bill with up-and-comers, Built By Snow and recent-transplants, Harlem. Tickets are only $8 in advance, $10 at the door or they cost only $5 if you head on over to Do512 and RSVP today.

Is it me or are these guys video game/sci-fi geeks?

By the way, I don't care what you say, Built By Snow is not even aware of what a Weezer is or how it might be used. Nor have they heard any music by a band that may or may not have the name Weezer

So, during SXSW I had some friends from Boston visiting/partying with me and I really wanted them to catch Harlem. I am a big fan of Harlem's jangly, surf-garage thing, surf is the new thing have you noticed that? Anyway, at the end of the weekend we were chatting about who was going to break out and my friend specifically noted that Harlem will NOT break out. I repeat, NOT...break-out. I countered that I bet they'll be HUGE in the U.K./Japan. Austin is very big in the U.K./Japan regions of the world. Here's one of those fake videos for the "single" from Harlem's, Free Drugs;-):

Word on the street is, White Denim have scrapped their previous deal with Transmission Entertainment(<-----Unconfirmed rumor) and they're playing sets of completely new material. But for now here's some videos for songs you should have heard by now, COME ON!
