HearYa SXSW Day Party Preview: Red Cortez

by oz on March 11, 2009


In just over a week, I’ll be aboard a plane wearing some noise canceling headphones, sipping on a Budweiser in a can with a shit-eatin’ grin on my face. When SXSW approaches, I get the same feeling in my stomach that I had when I was seven and Christmas was fast approaching. Just substitute beer and tex-mex for Gobots and Huey Lewis and The News on cassette.

One of the bands I’m most excited to see during the festival is Red Cortez out of LA. I briefly mentioned them in November and both the tracks I posted have made it into several of my playlists. Our “day” party starts at 11am and Red Cortez are scheduled to hit the stage at midnight, so they should light a fire under your ass if you’ve been there (and drinking) for over 12 hours. I have a feeling these guys will hit the stage with a reckless abandon.

I might even dance.
