SxSW Sixth Street Rock Walk Mop-up – Choogle On #65

Sixth Street Rock Walk Mop-up

Uncle Weed wraps up SXSW trip by chatting with Austin local Pugz – and various random characters – while rolling out a vast variety of great music including:

  • Liam Finn (New Zealand)
  • Black Angels (Austin)
  • Los Campesinos (Wales)
  • The Constantines (Toronto?)
  • Tiger Tiger
  • Sons and Daughters (Glasgow)
  • Wedding Present (Dublin)
  • The Pasties (Olympia, WA)

and various mysterious artists, while wandering the bustling streets of Austin USA, listening to the commotion, meeting curious folks, and commenting about food and recycling.

Note: Please add band links in comments to save me the time ;-).

Finding Faith in the Folk at SXSW – Choogle On #63

Finding Faith in the Folk

In a couple joint sessions on the balcony at SXSW, Uncle Weed recaps seeing (and meeting) folk-hero Billy Bragg at Cedar Street Courtyard documentary film about Dr. Hunter S. Thompson called Gonzo, plus seeing Athens rockers The Whigs at Stubbs, New Zealand experiential phenom Liam Finn at the Alehouse, and Canadian legends Blue Rodeo and friends (including Tom Cochran) at the Smokehouse – before fading from party exhaustion and happiness. Plus expresses concerns about expensive water, cigarette marketing, “unofficial” festivals and extreme douche bags.
