Tonight @ Ace of Cups: Mark Sultan

Stream: marksultan.com

From his website:

MARK SULTAN is back. A long-time fixture in the garage-rock scene since fronting infamous Montreal punk band, The Spaceshits. Further projects like Les Sexareenos, BBQ, Mind Controls, The King Khan & BBQ Show and The Almighty Defenders helped spearhead the modern garage-rock and doo-wop movement. These days he is best known as the ‘BBQ’ half of The King Khan & BBQ Show or as a member of The Almighty Defenders. He often shirks recognition and credit but make no mistake, he is THE VOICE. A hitmaker.

This show will be a one-man garage band party.  The local openers are clever pop stalwarts Day Creeper and the garage punk of The Utopiates. Admission is $5 for a fine Friday bill.

Australian bands at SXSW

No official word yet on who will be performing at the BEST SXSW DAY PARTY (see the #1 highlight of 2007 SXSW for me), the Aussie BBQ (scheduled for Friday, March 14) but a little birdie passed along some names of some Australian bands that may very well be crossing the ocean for an appearance at SXSW. Start speculating now about which of these bands will be part of the BBQ and which will be in regular SXSW nightly showcases.

Once we’ve got word about who will be playing the Aussie BBQ we’ll let you know how you can RSVP.
