David Cobb’s SXSW band previews

Y’all remember David Cobb, don’t ya? David’s Houston Calling column was a staple of the Donewaiting site for a few years before it outgrew this site and spun off to it’s own domain (houstoncalling.net). David’s got the advantage of living in the same state as SXSW and while it’s not exactly a short bike ride from Houston to Austin, he’s still a lot closer to the mayhem than the rest of the DW staff. David has spent the last month interviewing bands appearing at SXSW that he likes (for houstoncalling.net) and bands that he was assigned to cover (for spinner.com). In case you missed out on any of these great interviews, here they are:

SXSW: Via Audio, Tacks the Boy Disaster announce day party

Via Audio

Bands: Via Audio, Tacks the Boy Disaster, Hoots & Hellmouth
Location: The Whisky Bar (303 W 5th St)
Date/Time: Thursday, March 13, Times TBA

David saw Tacks the Boy Disaster last year at SXSW and said, “They were–simply put–amazing. The closest I can come to describing their sound is Midlake, but that might be due to the fact that one of the members of Midlake played a song with them during their set.” Meanwhile, Via Audio landed at number 6 on my “Favorites of 2007” list, so you can imagine the Donewaiting staff will be well represented at this FREE day party.

Here’s Via Audio performing at a day party last year at SXSW.
