Last Night, Rocker Stalker Said…: SXSW Day 2 Recap 3/14/12

Posted: March 20, 2012 in Entries

Day 2 of SXSW 2012 was a mishmash of musical genres.  I started my day with Brooklyn-based dance-rockers, Black Taxi,  at the Parish before jetting quickly­­­­­ to the Fader Fort to enjoy some free goodies and see Santigold. However, a confusion of set times left me milling around the event while tribal electro-pop Brits, Django Django, supplied the relentless soundtrack.  Scurrying back to The Parish, I caught the last moments of Austin’s The Frontier Brothers before making my way to the Paste Magazine Party for buzz bands, Tennis and Cavemen. Taking a break , I enjoyed a serving of Korean spicy fries from one of ATX’s several delicious food truck options (tasty invention!).  As evening fell, I decided to wander into a Scottish showcase where folk/electro/country act, Woodenbox, hit the stage. Across the street at The Main, I caught a few minutes of veteran punk rockers,  Pennywise’s, rowdy set, before making my way to the Flamingo Cantina for the Latin/World Showcase with Kenya’s Sauti Sol and NYC’s Outernational.  Running back to the Main and completing the night, I got to check out heavy rock Austinites, The Sword, and Kentucky’s finest, Cage the Elephant.  SXSW 2012 was on a roll!
