SXSW Scraps: Parte Final

We saw more bands than these, but not being crackerjack photographers ....

Oooooh, DeVotchKa. Singer Nick Urata holds nothing back during one of the band’s many packed showcases.

A band’s promotional street team pauses on Sixth Street before descending on its next victim. Jumpsuits forever.

Tapes N Tapes frontman Josh Grier’s guitar strap expanded and slipped during a humid hot set at Emo’s. Part of the heat was emanating from the hundreds of bodies sardined into the outdoor portion of the venue.

El-P, on-point and looking slightly possessed due to camera-induced gleam eye. He slaps himself in the face when he performs, which now that I think back on it, seems weird.

Foot Village assembles an Unidentified Foot-powered Object (a round-table formation of four  drum kits in various degrees of jury rigmanship) at the Scoot Inn.

Kits, sticks and megaphones are the only equipment used by the four drummers of Foot Village. The set was thrilling but way too short.

This is my favorite Foot Village member. Anyone know her name? She screams, stands on her stool, chants, runs through the crowd with a megaphone and is otherwise enchanting.

X performs a simulcast concert at the Austin Convention Center. More than 30 years after the band’s L.A. inception, Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom and DJ Bonebrake are sharper than ever together. On the set list (that I remember): “Devil Doll,” “The Hungry Wolf,” “In This House the I Call Home,” “Los Angeles,” “Riding with Mary,” “We’re Desperate,” “White Girl” and “Your Phone’s Off the Hook.” These songs, and so many more, put X at the summit of America’s songwriting craft. Magical.
