Gugai, booker extraordinaire for the Roisin Dubh in Galway, and curator of Strange Brew, his Thursday clubnight, is in Texas for SXSW, he's been mailing on his to's and fro's, comings and goings etc. etc. Here's what he's been getting up to!
Greetings from a sunny Austin, Texas - live music capital of the world.
I arrived in at 8 last night after travelling for 23 hours, went to
meet a friend of mine I'm staying with at The Scoot Inn and who should
be playing but So Cow. Fancy that. Morning means breakfast tacos in
Guerros. Very delicious. The music kicks off around 11 or 12 - saw
MNDR in the conference centre which was a bit odd. The Morning Benders
were awesome. They're going to be huge in 2010. On the current Strange
Brew CD, so they are, as are the magnificent Warpaint. Freelance
Whales are my highlight so far. It's only 3pm though!
Also, Ezra Furman & The Harpoons are fantastic. Roky Erickson &
Okkervil River was lovely. Woodhands - more people should have piano
Woodhands - Dissembler Alt
Warpaint - Beetles Alt
The Morning Benders - Promises Alt
Freelance Whales - Generator Second Floor Alt
