jason: WFMU / aQ SXSW 2010 preview (mp3s)
(img = Stevie Ray, waiting for his lift to last year's Mayyors set) Oi, hey, Texas, ready for thirds? After our debut show at SXSW in Austin in 2008 and our joint show with our pals at Aquarius Records from San Francisco last year, we're happy to announce that we'll both be back and once again broadasting from Encore (formerly Spiro's) on 611 Red River Street on Friday, March 19th! Two stages (one of which is the outdoor amphitheater), 14 acts, and no Metallica playing next door this time (so we dont have to worry about Lars' dressing trailer blocking anyone's way in). Liz Berg, Jason Sigal, Scott Williams, Brian Turner and Diane Kamikaze will be holding the FMU broadcast fort down starting at 7PM (Central Time), Andee from Aquarius will be there, and hopefully you as well. Once again, we've got a heady mix of the heavy, damaged, darkly, punk, weird, noisy, poppy, trippy sounds, some hometown NY/SF heroes representing in Austin, and even a full on Cambodian psych-pop dance party at night's end. Check out the lineup!
OUTDOOR STAGE (covered, rain or shine)
7:00pm Liturgy (memb. GDFX, Thick Business, Dan Deacon)
9:00pm Iron Man
10:00pm Moon Duo (Ripley from Wooden Shjips)
11:00pm Shit and Shine
