HearYa SXSW Day Party Update: The Deep Dark Woods and Free Tacos

Just when you thought our party couldn’t get better, we went ahead and added free tacos to Stimulus Package, courtesy of Taco Town. For those keeping score, that’s free booze and free tacos. And free music. More free shit is in the works.

We also added one Canadian band to the lineup. Well actually, we replaced one Canadian band (Elliott Brood had a conflict) with The Deep Dark Woods (who we had committed to and then realized we double-booked). Luckily it all worked out before the US-Canadian tension accelerated into a full-on conflict. You’re welcome, Barack. One less issue for you to worry about.

I’ll be featuring a few bands from our lineup before heading to SxSW next week, so let’s start with The Deep Dark Woods from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Their recent release, Winter Hours, is tied with Justin Townes Earle’s Midnight At The Movies as my favorite album of 2009 so far. Rolling rhythm, sublime songwriting, great guitar work and lush harmonies. DDW will beon at 2pm, serving as a perfect primer before Joe Pug and Justin Townes Earle take the stage a bit later in the afternoon.
