5 Bands I am still listening to after SXSW

St Paul and the Broken Bones

​You don't have to know a single song from the album to have fun watching this band. I immediately bought their album after I saw them live. I love the lead singers voice. 

PS...They are coming back in April for the Old Settlers Music Festival. 

​



Birds of Tokyo

AThis group sells out stadiums in Australia. I had listened to their song 'Lanterns' prior to seeing them at SXSW...but seeing them live made all the difference. â€‹Listen to the song a few times...it becomes addicting. 



Bleachers

Jack Antonoff of Fun has a new project called Bleachers. Maybe it is because I love the band Fun...or maybe it is because I love Jack's girlfriend (Girls creator Lena Dunham) but I dig this band.



Mandolin Orange

I read about this band from Peter Blackstock at the Statesman. This particular video is from 2012, but oh so good. 



Vance Joy

A nice, cute boy sent me this video last spring and I kind of fell in love with Vance Joy. Great summer song and super cool music video. 




A few other bands I didn't get to see, but heard a lot about. 

Jamestown Revival
Boy and Bear

SXSW Film
  1. Boyhood – Austinte Richard Linklater filmed this over a 12 year period. We will get to see the same actor play a boy from age 6 to 18. Now that is cool.
  2. Hellion –Austinite and UT Film Professor Kat Candler scooped up Aaron Paul from ‘Breaking Bad’ and I can’t WAIT to see it!
  3. Veronica Mars – Austinite Rob Thomas raised money from Kickstarter to fund the movie. The people have spoken! The entire cast will be walking the red carpet! #neat
  4. Chef – Jon Favreau filmed some of this movie here in Austin! Look out for Robert Downey Jr. Chef posters around downtown this weekend.
  5. Silicon Valley – Austinite Mike Judge is debuting his new HBO comedy that features a slew of super funny people.

5 People I am excited to see at SXSW 2014
SXSW is HERE!!!!!
  1. Mindy Kaling – Mindy is a badass (and a great follow on instagram.) Her tv shows…it totally is normal to be a successful career woman…with an unsuccessful dating life. Got to go pay my respect.
  2. Bill Cosby –Bill Cosby at Lustre Pearl? Will it be amazing or weird? I literally can't even picture it in my head. I must find out.
  3. Up Next featuring Fred Armison – There are a ton of new faces on SNL this year,  and 4 of those faces are doing stand up in this show! Beck Bennett, Kyle Mooney, Tim Robinson, and Sasheer Zamata! 
  4. Inside Late Night with Seth Meyers – Seth, his producer, and his head writer all talking about the new Late Night show. **Late Night talk show nerd alert!!!
  5. 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon – So Kevin Bacon is going to talk with the dude who created '6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon!' Oh how many times I played this game with friends in high school. And who are these “surprise guests” that are showing up!?
