SXSW Preview: Shearwater
As you probably know, Shearwater is made up of various members of blogger faves Okkervil River. You may not know that Shearwater will be playing no fewer than 5 shows at SXSW...I'd recommend catching them Wednesday at Emo's Day Party along with SOUND team and I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness.
Here's a track from Shearwater's upcoming album, Palo Santo.
Shearwater Seventy Four, Seventy Five mp3
Also, if you're going to be in Austin on Tuesday:
Townes Van Zandt Be Here to Love Me DVD Release Party:
Featuring a screening of the Austin City Limits 1998 episode "Celebration of Townes Van Zandt" Free BBQ! Drink Specials! Door prizes! March 14th, 6-9pm. At Beauty Bar (7th St. at Red River) in Austin.
College hoops fans, it's that time of year again. March Madness is possibly my favorite sporting event of the year, and Luke Winn's Tourney Blog over at SI.com is a must read.
