SXSW 2010 Preview (Locals Only): Brazos

To be honest, I don't understand why Brazos isn't nationally successful yet. They've been churning out perfect indie-pop all over Austin for years and their album Phosphorescent Blues rules. It's for these reasons that I would like to call your attention to Austin's poorly-kept-secret, Brazos. You can actually catch them, along with many other great Austin bands, tonight! The Mohawk is hosting the ATX Emerge show, which is basically a showcase of the best Austin has to offer this year for all of our out of town guests. You can catch me down there but I'll probably have to leave in the middle of Sunset's set as I work at 6:30am tomorrow. Sorry, Sunset I <3 you but you know how it is when that alarm goes off round 5am.

Are we excited about SXSW now or what?!?!

Once again, I've pulled this show information from those independent bloginators over at Do512, thanks y'all!

So, don't forget if none of the above shows fit into you're schedule but you are reading this in Austin in this moment, then you can actually see Brazos tonight! Hopefully, I'll get some good video of them performing tonight, the selection on YouTube leaves a lot to be desired at the moment. Although this is a pretty nice video.
