Bleachers’ day party on Wednesday was packed with some solid up and comers, including Philadelphia natives CRUISR, who helped kick things off earlier in the day. This was definitely a chance for the band to showcase their sound to a new audience, and I’m sure they converted several people into fans with their ear-catching songwriting. Check out a clip from

VIDEO: Joywave Live at Vulcan Gas Company (SXSW 2015)

Sprinkled into a fun set of opening acts at Bleachers’ free day party was Joywave, a band that had been around for several years, but is first starting to really break into the elusive next level. The group has been touring with Bleachers, and so naturally it made sense for them to open for Antonoff and co. at their party.

VIDEO: Bleachers – “Rollercoaster” Live at Vulcan Gas Company (SXSW 2015)

Yesterday morning I woke up looking for a day party to go to at South By Southwest, seeing as how I really only was there during the night last year. A quick scroll through Twitter showed me that Bleachers were throwing a free, no badge party at Vulcan Gas Company, and the opportunity seemed perfect. The goal was to make

AUDIO: The Obvious – “Bringing Wreck”

This is another South By Southwest discovery that I’m really glad that I stumbled upon. On… one of the days that I was there (after a while, it started to blend), I caught the very end of The Obvious’s set. In fact, I caught them from outside of the bar, through a doorway, because frontwoman Surojanie Sugrim was busy tearing

Allen at SXSW: Saturday Recap

So… All good things come to an end. In this case, SXSW 2014 went out with a bang for me. Just when I thought that I had experienced a lot of what Austin had to offer for free venues, I went with Uni-Fi Records, Higher Education Records, Klassik, MC Mikal and Fresh Cut Collective to “An Open Affair”, a backyard

Allen at SXSW: Friday Recap

Before leaving the Milwaukee house for the day on Friday, a friend informed me that Fridays are usually the best days to be there. He was definitely not wrong; I think it was my favorite day so far. I went with the Uni-Fi Records crew to the Thirsty Nickel, where Dana Coppa and Klassik performed. Dana did a solo set

Allen at SXSW: Thursday Recap

Thursday at SXSW was, for me, predominately about hip hop. I started off way earlier than Wednesday, with my first stop being Crisp on 6th Street for a showcase. I saw a lot of new faces, including Alaskan rapper Baked Alaska, who rapped about climbing mountains and the trap… Grizzly Bear trap, that is. While I couldn’t necessarily relate, at

Allen at SXSW: Wednesday Recap

Wednesday was a super long day for me. I stayed up 25 hours straight between my morning flights and a late party. More importantly, it was my first day at South By Southwest. This is my first time in Austin, so needless to say this is all a new experience for me. Most of Wednesday was spent at the MilwaukeeHome
