The City of Austin is full of greasy hair, backbeats and sticky fingers.

You can't throw a rock down the street without hitting a bass player or his/her handler pimping a set later this week. I was in line for a belly of meat, bread and onions when a I was accosted by a member of The Hanks, who was handing out comic strips promoting their gig on Thurday night at tThe Troubadour Saloon. I may check it out purely out of appreciation of the clever pimping.

I stuck around for most of the Sub Pop showcase at Emo's, which featured a set from Loney, Dear, pictured above. Check out SXSW: The Daily Report Podcast for audio samples from the show and a few words from the Nashville-based teenage band Fouled Out.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
