Friday Leftovers

11Mar11

Lemme get some FREE music links out of the way, so I can get to the good stuff:
1. FREE live tracks from My Morning Jacket, via Pitchfork
2. A bitchin’ FREE cover of ‘Downtown Train’ from Bob Seger, via Cover Me

3. Music festival SXSW (South By Southwest) is going on next week in Austin, TX. A friend of mine lives right in downtown Austin, which makes it criminally inexcusable that I’m not attending. Check out this guide from music site Bandcamp which lets you listen to a song from all of their artists who will be performing at SXSW. Bandcamp is a cool hosting site where musicians can roll out their stuff to fans, with less red tape than a major-label deal.

Part of the beauty in attending these festivals is to ignore the big-name acts and discover new music. But if I were down there it would be hard to miss a few bands (other than the obvious G. Love/Stephen Kellogg/etc) like:
Los Lonely Boys
The Cool Kids
Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears
Chiddy Bang
Sondre Lerche
Das Racist
– Bright Eyes – would only go to wedgie all people in attendance

Graham Colton will be there too…check out his new video!
