Ok so here's the last few shows I made it too for sxsw. It was a jam packed weekend here in Austin and I am exhausted. Some fun crazy bands round up the end of this festival. Two of which proudly sported unitards.

First up was a band by the name of Treasure Mammal at Domy Books. Domy is the perfect place for a band like this. Just balls out weird and crazy. Each member wearing a ridiculous body hugging outfit with a sound just a ridiculous. To start the lead singer, sports a very nice mullet, a torn up black and neon striped unitard with a unicorn bedazzled on the back. Other band members adorned headbands, a tiger striped unitard, and a gas mask. At several points during the performance, they humped the stage, the ground and the crowd. They pulled out shake weights and pseudo whacked each other off. They joined hands with the crowd and formed a "cinnamon roll" where they wrapped around in a circle until the everyone was hugging in a sweaty circle. It's the kind of hilariously crazy antics that you just can't help but be bewildered by.


later that evening I had the pleasure of jamming out to a quick set by Skrillex at Emo's. Skrillex is some hard core, super bass, dub step and will get you moving. I don't know if I've ever seen a crowd get so amped so quickly. I'd love to see a full length set sometime.


Next I headed to beauty bar to check out another insane band called, HOTTUB. The three female singers of this band are some of the wildest girls you'll see hit the stage. Speaker humping, on stage spanking and boobie flashing were common place in there set and I can't deny I enjoyed every second of it. The energy and excitement the girls brought just made you constantly question was was going to happen next.


And Finally it was all the way over to La Zona Rosa for the absolutely awesome performance by Chromeo. If you've never heard chromeo, imagine if George Michael and Moog had a baby. It's gonna get stuck in your head. The performance they had was great and its always more impressive to see electronic artists using a multitude of instruments. Truly talented guys and they just had the whole building bouncing to the beat.

    If anything, Every Time I Die are a punctual band. You can expect a new album from them every other year, with several tours in between.

    Hands down, Twin Peaks has the best score - and intro song - in the history of television. The only non-download way for fans to listen to the OST is a CD from the early '90s when CD audio compression wasn't so hot. (Don't get me wrong.

    You've got to hand it to them. The boys in Every Time I Die are extremely reliable, having put out a new album every two years since 2001, save for a single three-year gap.
