The Adios Lounge can’t participate in this year’s SXSW Music Festival because of top-secret government work. Yep, it’s true. While Austin staggers under the weight of freebeerpalooza, I’ll be keeping the Western Hemisphere safe in a bunker 20 miles below the surface of the earth.
My disadvantageous location notwithstanding, don’t think for a second my finger isn’t on the pulse of excellence. Adios Lounge fans in ATX are wise to visit Sam’s Town Point this Thursday, March 18. Prepare for your world to be adjusted by The Archibalds, Glossary, and Vulture Whale. If you willfully miss this show you should be hunted for sport for at least half a day.
Tuesday update: Arkadelphia (featuring Dexateens guitarist/vocalist, Lee Bains III) is not playing this gig because the amount of rock they bring to each gig can’t be contained within the cargo hold of the common passenger aircraft. Maybe next year.
