SXSW 2007 Day Three – Galactic w/ Lyrics Born, Ferraby Lionheart, DATAROCK, The Fratellis, Trainwreck Riders, Earl Greyhound

Okay, so Galactic was on day two after El-P, but I didn’t have the picture ready until now. Woody checked them out before falling asleep standing up again. Wait a second… that show was at 1:00am, so it was technically day three.

Day three was our best day of SXSW 2007 thanks to NY2LON, Le Tigre, and Brooklyn Vegan. They had a great venue for their day party at Habana Calle with one outdoor stage and one indoor stage. Inside had an open bar with the NCAA games on, free bloodies, Heinekens, and Fiji water. No free food that I could find, but the liquid suited me just fine.

The band lineup was incredibly good. Ferraby Lionheart soothed our hangovers with some mellow, acoustic songs while we enjoyed our first drinks of the day. A stroll outside sent us into some humor-infused party pop with DATAROCK, complete with matching red jumpsuits. The Fratellis hopped on stage after that with an acoustic set that was impossible to see from anywhere but the front row, but they sounded great. I wish they were standing so I could have seen something other than the top of the lead singer’s afro. We then hopped back inside for The Trainwreck Riders who played like it was their last second at SXSW. I’m a big fan of their album, but it’s no indication of what to expect when you see them live. They have a punch you in the face brand of cow-punk that makes you tap your foot and drink your beer a little bit faster.

After that party, we headed to the Chuggin’ Monkey for Earl Greyhound. That completed our music fix and the rest of the day and night involved hopping around 6th street, with no agenda, getting weird.

That’s it from SXSW 2007, other than some random commentary and mp3’s we may post over the next week or two. We’ve been inspired to throw our own party next year. You are all invited.

It would be totally rad if you did a show next year. In fact, I am thinking of having one, and I am quite sure it would be fun, fun, fun in Austin.

(honestly, I am still pissed I missed it this year, and I am mourning.)
