Here’s a just-released video of the Breeders’ Kelley Deal and Ampline’s Mike Montgomery aka R. Ring performing in the basement of the Texas State Capitol building during this year’s SXSW. The beautifully hypnotic “Fall Out and Fire” is from a forthcoming 7-inch on Misra Records.
Columbus folks can catch R. Ring tonight (Wed, 5/9) at the Tree Bar with Feature Films and Joel Walter with Keith Novicki ($8).
It seems hometown girl Lydia Loveless turned even more heads this year at SXSW. SPIN named her one of its “Best of SXSW,” saying she’s “one of the most badass country or Americana or rootsy-fartsy songwriters working today. Her Red Eyed Fly set at the Bloodshot Records showcase was a revelation…. Loveless may not even be a household murmur right now, but she’ll get hers soon enough, and the old alt-country guard better look out.” Greg Kot at the Chicago Tribune was similarly complimentary, and the LA Timescalled her Saturday night set a “high-energy, don’t-mess-with-me take from a rising young should-be-star with an outlaw bent…. [“More Like Them”] is equally relentless and stubborn, indicative of an artist who isn’t interested in hearing your advice. With songs like these, she doesn’t need it.”
Sounds like the Donewaiting fave did all right for herself. Check out the above video of Loveless and Ben Lamb doing an acoustic version of “Back on the Bottle” at SXSW for the Rhapsody “Stripped Down by the River” series.
The VICE KILLS TEXAS SXSW Party did not fuck around last night. A$AP Rocky and his whole mob had the sizable crowd rocking in an airport hangar at like 3:00 Am. People kept throwing bottles, PBR cans and water cause I mean everyone likes being bad. So eventually A$AP ROCKY and his crew bumrushed the crowd. It’s true the Harlem squad went into the audience swinging on fools but it seemed like they were more pulling people’s cards than trying to hurt anyone.
