Colin Gawel ranks every Cheap Trick song

Colin Gawel (Watershed) loves Cheap Trick, so much so that he ranked all of the band’s songs (apparently 184?) with some notes about most of them, links to videos, etc. Check it out here.

Colin Gawel and the Lonely Bones will kick off the Goodale Park Music Series Sunday afternoon, free at the gazebo from 12:30-2.

She and Him, Metric, Cheap Trick and More Announced for SXSW

SXSW just announced some big names performing this year including Cheap Trick, She and Him, and more.

Other heavy-hitters confirmed to showcase this March include the return of indie pop folk duo Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward performing as She & Him. Indie rockers Metric will be making an appearance along with their fellow Canadian musical collective Broken Social Scene. Also see performances from Japanese indietronica artist Cornelius, Japanese-American hip hop producer and artist Dan the Automator, and Chilean hip hop artist Anita Tijoux.

Super group (?) to debut at SXSW

How the hell do these people get together to form a band? I mean, I guess you can play connect the dots to a certain extent – Bassist Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne) and guitarist James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins) co-own a studio. And Iha undoubtedly is a Cheap Trick fan which is where drummer Bun E. Carlos enters the equation. But, prey tell, who invited Taylor Hanson to the party?

Eh, whatever.

This group (is it “super”?) is calling themselves Tinted Windows and will play at Pangaea on March 20 in Austin during SXSW week.
