Fight Like Apes @ BD Rielys, SXSW, Austin TX

Posted: 21 Mar 2009 11:58 AM PDT

fightlikeapesTo see raucous Irish band , one should be in the right mindset: drunk. To clarify, I mean fun drunk, not sleepy drunk or depressed drunk or pugnacious drunk; you need to be balls to the wall I wanna have a good fucking time goddammit drunk. After having spent the late morning and most of the afternoon sipping on hard lemonades and orange fizzs, compliments of Carrera and Belvedere Vodka, I was in perfect form to revel in the new wave punk sounds of .

Front woman , in jeans and a t-shirt with mussed hair, unleashed on BD Riely’s tiny stage, stomping around, playing the synth and screeching lyrics, vocally reminiscent of The KillsAlison Mosshart. The entire set consisted of driving punk rock jams that got the crowd dancing along and wanting more by the time the short set ended. Hooky songs like “Lend Me Your Face”, which I haven’t been able to get out of my head since getting the record a few weeks back, worked the crowd into a fevor.

Sadly, was last performance in the States before heading back across the pond to play a string of dates in the UK. Highly recommended: snag a copy of You Filled His Head With Fluffy Clouds And Jolly Ranchers. What Did You Think Was Going To Happen? and dance around your living room. It’s fun.

Tinted Windows @ Pangaea, SXSW, Austin TX

Posted: 21 Mar 2009 11:23 AM PDT

To be completely honest, it wasn’t James Iha of The and a . It wasn’t of and . It wasn’t of Cheap Trick. No, what really attracted me to the idea of hearing Tinted Windows‘ first official performance was of Hanson. I’m not fangirly or anything though I was in middle school when the Hanson brothers were popular. I want to be clear that I didn’t go see him just because I thought he was the cute brother or anything. I just wanted to see what it was about him that he could go from singing “Mmmbop” to the world to working with the world’s biggest rock legends. Not to put Hanson down or anything–I think some of the later work is genuinely good–but I just couldn’t imagine a Pumpkin working with a Hanson.

So I waited in line for over an hour to get into the small Austin club Pangaea to check out the band’s first official performance (I was informed they played a warm-up show at the Levi/Fader tent). Once I got in there, I worked up to the front and patiently waited. For all the hype this group has, I was actually preparing myself to get let down, but once the guys of Tinted Windows finally hopped up on the tiny stage, I was loving every minute of it.

I don’t know why I was thinking these music veterans would disappoint, but they were one of the most tight sets of the entire festival. It is apparent the diverse influences that each guy brought to the band, which gives them a sort of dance, southern rock vibe. For an audience that had never heard any material from Tinted Windows, they were really into the music. Upbeat numbers like “Cha Cha” got the crowd dancing and clapping along. The songs were catchy and smart.

They were probably one of my favorite shows of the festival and I recommend that people check them out and give them a fair chance. Sure you can hear a little Cheap Trick in the drum solo here or a touch of in this guitar riff, but Tinted Windows doesn’t deserve to be typecast, but previous projects of the members. They would be their own superstar group even if they hadn’t all been originally rockstars.

Young Love @ Peckerhead’s, SXSW, Austin TX

Posted: 21 Mar 2009 12:24 AM PDT

Notice to all venues: bands that can bring the rock and the dance action deserve to be on a ground level. The tiny bar that Young Love was squeezed into was the second floor of Peckerhead’s and it was overflowing with people ready to dance to the irresistible synth-heavy tunes sung by . young-love-1

Keyes treated the audience like they were old friends and for the former Austinite, that may have been the case. But whether you knew him or you didn’t everybody was following the energetic guy as he danced around the stage and often sang for the audience to do the same or at the very least, clap.

During one long, instrumental solo, Keyes stepped off the stage and into the crowd. Instead of drawing attention to himself, he swiveled around and participated like any other crowd member and watched. It is just impressive to see a front man take a step back and let the band be seen and shine.

If you’re looking to have some fun and dance, but not necessarily be “clubbin”, show some love to Young Love.

Telekinesis @ The Mohawk, SXSW, Austin TX

Posted: 21 Mar 2009 12:10 AM PDT

For a band from such a rainy city, they sure know how to make a crowd feel awash in their sunny melodies. Seattle band Telekinesis played bright and early on the Mohawk Outdoor Stage. The early set time didn’t stop them from drawing a decently sized crowd that was eager to check out this recent Merge Records signing.

Passing on the street you wouldn’t place the skinny redhead in glasses as one of the most powerful singer/drummers, but I think he serves as a reminder that you can’t judge a book by his cover. Lerner was joined on stage by friends, Chris Staples, David Broecker and Jonie Broecker, whom loaned instrumental talent as well as impressive vocal harmonies.

Keep an eye out on Telekinesis. The debut self-titled album drops April 7.
