Drop Kick: SXSW 2012 Recap Day 2

leave a comment

Great Scott, I’ve gone back in time! This gem of a post from Day 2 of SXSW 2012 is too good to not post. As is. All first impressions, half baked. No fun linking or songs on this. But such fun to see who made it 5 years later. I’ll just leave this here…


A month and change later, on to Day 2. Make sense? Sure it does.

Day 2
Mellow Johnnies
The War on Drugs- Had these guys pegged for a listen at some point during the festival and was on a massive hunt to find the right show. Little did I know that a bike shop  would save me.

Hype hotel
Jonquil – British dance rock with trumpet. Great sound, evolving presence. Would love to learn more (and so should you)

Ed Shearen (2017 self interjection: !!!!!!! He wasn’t even the headliner!!!!!!!!!)- looped vocals and guitar. Uncanny ability for being 21 (apparently he played 300 shows in one year. Practice makes perfect.). Based on feedback from random Australians, he’s huge down under (pun firmly intended). Based on this show, I could see some promise state side.

Of monsters and men- Icelandic and chill
Avalanche city- screamer rock from Austin

fun – mika is back. Bright voices, big melodies, aptly titled band name

1100 warehouse
Skrillex – bro step at it’s finest.
