The night before SXSW Film and Interactive got started, I checked out the Shapes Have Fangs show at Mohawk. Turns out Rosa Madriz, the student station manager of KVRX ten years ago when I got my start in radio, books the Mohawk. I also met Christina Garcia who writes about electronic music for Austin Vida. She and I were there for the same reason, to hear DJ Hobo D.
He was rocking between live performances all night. He will DJ the Daily Juice Boat Party on Tuesday, March 16th.
Also, Thursday I got to eat my favorite barbeque, natural beef brisket from Ruby’s. And I located a glass of my favorite Austin beer, Live Oak Hefe. I’m saving photos of food and drink for a post later in the trip.

For tickets, check in with the Daily Juice on Barton Springs.
Ernest Gonzales’ new record/book just got 4 stars in Urb Magazine. He also makes incredible remixes, recording under the name Mexicans With Guns, which you can hear by searching for him on Hype Machine. (And Ernest is the founder and head of Exponential Records, releasing dope music from San Antonio and beyond for a handful of years now.) Watch his video for “Etchasketch Trees” produced by Air.
Finn Riggins have rocked shows in 38 U.S. states over just the past two years, recently making every indie rock kid in Idaho proud as openers for multiple Built to Spill dates. The three piece crew just began touring with Boy Eats Drum Machine, en route to Austin. Read a brand new journal from Eric Gilbert, singer/keys for Finn Riggins on Boise Weekly’s Tour Mode blog. Seattle Weekly covered their Thursday Feb. 25th show at Seattle’s Sunset Tavern. Watch their video for “Wake” produced by Jason Sievers.
The video for “ABQ” by Boy Eats Drum Machine is hilarious, featuring derby girls Rose City Rollers.
You’ve also gotta check out Boy Eats Drum Machine performing “Booomboxxx” live.
I think the Focus Group video for “Very Truly Yours is great. Reminds me of watching old-school cable access TV growing up. Check it out.
Shook turned me on to Woodgrain. Watch them playing live at what is apparently a Typewriter Museum one year ago.
DJ Hobo D needs no introduction for party-goers in Austin. If you don’t know, come get on the boat. You’ll know. He cracks me up every time I talk to him, so this interview he did on ME TV recently definitely got me grinning.
This guy and vinyl go so far back, he’s now counted on to bring rare grooves and wicked mixes to literally every fucking show he loads his mixer into. Can’t wait to scratch my chin when he drops crazy tunes I can’t identify while we’re floating in the middle of the Texas Hill Country!!!
