Matt, Kim, Cut, Copy, Stubb's Tonight


Well tonight's Cut Copy show at Stubb's is already sold-out but I'm still going to mention it. Why is this you may ask? Because I flippin' love BOTH Matt & Kim AND Cut Copy. I'm not too upset about not getting tickets though because I already so both of these artists at two different venues late last year.

But that doesn't mean that you shouldn't get your ace down to Red River and check 'em out. Stubb's shows always have scalpers and if you wait till you can hear music those dudes panic and sell low.

Video after the jump...

Ok, so the quality of this video is pretty much shite, but it gives you a good idea of the atmosphere. This was taken at the show I saw (I'm the one jumping with my hands in the air) with Cut Copy and the Presets at Emo's:


Cut Copy - Hearts on Fire video via YouTube

This is my fav Cut Copy song and again you're getting a shite video. Mainly because they are affiliated with the evil faceless music conglomeration Universal Music Group who does NOT allow embedding of videos by their artists. Nice try stupid, evil UMG, but my readers are still getting their Cut Copy fix, so there!

OMG Matt & Kim are SO effin' fun!

Get Thee to Hot Freaks!! SXSW RSVP

Hot Freaks is not a porno site, well acutally it is, but it's also a blog-collective (dibs) made up of most of my favorite music bloggers. I have been to their parties the last couple of years and they always get great bands, at my favorite venues, usually with free shhhh too.

In order to RSVP this year you have to become a member of their community, but I'm cool with that. I met all of these bloggers at SXSW last year and I trust that they won't SPAM the stuff out of me.

The Line-Up for these parties is pretty ridiculously sweet. They've got three stages, at two venues, over the course of 2-days. Should be pretty effin' acceptable.

Kool Keef, Mohawk, Tonight

I'm not sure which Kool Keith persona you can expect to see at the Mohawk tonight but rest-assured that Kool Keith is gonna bring it. Tickets are going to set you back $11 if you buy 'em now, or $13 if you can manage to get 'em at the door.

I guess I should mention that Dr. Octagon and Dr. Dooom are both Kool Keith personas. He has many.
