SXSW – Día 4 R3Cap + HLs

Day Cuatro

After a Great Combination of  Shows the Night before (Thurs 14th) we thought there was no way we could come close to match or have a better night…  then again we were counting on it..

Weather was fantastic, the night before Meat Puppets, Sound City Players and Stevie Nicks rocked the stage over at Stubb’s, rumors about a secret Daft Punk show were spreading all over and posters were getting snatched, public enemy, Ll cool J and Ice Cube also performed the night before – Friday 15th – Cuatro! and Broadway Idiot Premiered @ Paramount Theatre for a later  Green Day performance at ACL Live, windy, energy challenge, pedicab motion, schedule times changes, check in, check out, Flatstock essence, Jet Set Go…

Friday started with Vampire Weekend showcase at the Radio Day Stage, almost everyone out with badges around that time was present… Another show full to capacity… many left outside but staff kept doors open.

Vampire Weekend was another Great Band part of  sxsw to showcase and introduce their new album Modern Vampires of the City available May 7… The Fang Gang still has its touch and preserve their unique melodic seal… fans chanted, tunes and joy filled the room.

From there we were still hunting The TonTons… who cancelled an early show to later re-schedule 2 more shows… finally to find out they will be playing at Rags2Riches next day… hunt cancelled… next !

The Rest of the Night was an Easy Task… Spend the Night over at the MACC for the Pan Americana Festival… Manzanas Malas, Master Blaster, Grupo Fantasma, El Dusty and Celso Piña was a Super Line-up for a Noche de CUMBIA to have a good time, catch up with friends and breathe Austin Texas Music Scene…
