Fred Armisen’s Guide To Music And SXSW 1998

A few years back we hosted Fred Armisen's comedic five part video guide to SXSW 1998. Then we switched video platforms and the clips were swallowed by our system. Whoops! We've finally rescued them and promise not to delete them. This "guide" is generally viewed as Fred's official transition from being the drummer in Chicago… More »

Nobody likes a lazy non-contributor, so we've teamed up with one of our favorite labels Sacred Bones and one of Austin's greatest institutions Chaos In Tejas to present a free all day/night party on Thursday March 17th at Beerland (711 Red River Street). It… More »

Strokes Confirm SXSW Free Show

The not-so-secret secret line on SXSW is that the industry fest isn't much of an industry fest at all -- all day everyday is a buffet of buzz bands playing showcases curated by your favorite blogger, usually at the cost of just an RSVP email in advance. The Strokes are doing that all one better… More »

MTVu Woodie Nominations 2011

MTVu, the dorm version of MTV that you might have watched a lot of in college because you and your roommate agreed not to get cable, will hold their annual awards ceremony in Austin during South By Southwest's 25th anniversary festival. They announced their nominations yesterday, with hip-hop acts taking the lead on many categories:… More »

Ben Gibbard – “I Don’t Want To Get Over You” (Magnetic Fields Cover Live At Stereogum Range Life 2010)

There's nothing like an unplugged Ben Gibbard set to remind you that the man has refined a signature style of storytelling. And there's nothing like an unplugged Ben Gibbard unveiling his cover of another cherished lyricist to make you feel lucky to be within earshot. For those of you that couldn't join us at our… More »

SXSW 2010: Macy Gray Covers Arcade Fire At Perez Hilton’s Party

Perez Hilton photoshopped his presence onto the image of SXSW yet again this year, hosting a late-night last-night party that drew Hole, Snoop Dogg, and Estelle, but it's the earlier set featuring Macy Gray that caught our attention for her choice of cover: Arcade Fire's "Wake Up." If your eye's cocked at mainstream artist… More »

SXSW 2010: The Wrap Up

We saw a bunch of bands this past week. Not every set was memorable, but there were more than enough highlights to make the stiff necks and barking feet worth it. Here's Wednesday, Thursday, Gibbarday, and SXSW's metal shows, and more. This last post contains our notes, and photo… More »

SXSW 2010: Stereogum Range Life

"It's early Saturday afternoon and you guys are still drinking, aren't you. You're just like, 'I can take off next week to dry up and process everything that happened during SXSW.'" Well no Ben Gibbard, we can't take this week off -- but the rest was true enough. There was free food and booze so… More »

SXSW 2010: Thursday In Photos

On some nights you can fool yourself into forgetting that industry weeks like SXSW have shifted from being about discovery to being full-on music festivals. Yesterday was not one of those days. Aside from the always-on-point imprint True Panther Sounds' top-to-bottom burner at Ms. Bea's -- giving us our first look at Hunx and Hi… More »

SXSW 2010: Wednesday In Photos

Here's a tip if you're going to one of these industry festival type things: If IAMSOUND is having a party, you should attend that party.

SXSW 2010: Salome, Torche, High On Fire Smoke Up Austin

Yesterday I saw 12 metal bands before High On Fire hopped onto the outdoor stage at the Mohawk sometime around midnight to make it a perfect baker's dozen. A few of those were a lot of fun -- Chicago's upswinging Atlas Moth and their three-guitar tapestries (and beer-buzzed banter), frontwoman Grace Perry's afternoon pit-initiating… More »

SXSW 2010: Underwater Peoples Ranch @ 13813 Carpenter Lane, Manchaca, TX

D.C.-based label Underwater Peoples hosted their official unofficial showcase at a rented "swingers' retreat" in Manchack, a small rural community a short drive out of downtown Austin. Great people, free BBQ, and the very best (feat Ezra Koenig) reason to get off the beaten path (6th St) on SXSW Day 1. I was not… More »

SXSW 2010: Fool’s Gold – “Poseidon” Video (Live At Malverde)

When Stereogum first saw Fool's Gold open for Cat Power a little over a year ago, Amrit noted the LA collective's “love for benga (Kenya-based), juju (rooted in Nigeria), and the Congolese genre called soukous (mother of kwassa kwassa, maybe you’ve heard of it).” At last night's packed IAMSOUND showcase, I was reminded most of… More »

Wye Oak – “I Hope You Die”

If you needed new reasons to join us at Range Life down at SXSW, you're welcome. First and foremost is this engrossing and gently saxophoned(!) keyboard-centric track from twangy Baltimore dreamers Wye Oak, the band sandwitched between Ben Gibbard and the morning benders at our show and highly capable of turning out memorableMore »
