Tacks, the Boy Disaster
Read an interview here with Evan Jacobs, the frontman of one of Austin's best new bands, Tacks the Boy Disaster. Evan (also of The Polyphonic Spree, ex-Midlake) is a great songwriter, and the tracks I've heard so far are gorgeous. I've also had the pleasure of seeing both of the band's Dallas shows, and they are great live.

Continuing with our Austin theme, this is either the funniest (and most impressive, I might add) thing I've ever seen, or one very unfortunate optical illusion.
