Every day during SXSW 2016, I’ll be providing a “box score” listing the bands I saw the preceding day. And befitting something so named, I’ll also let you know if there were any big hits (or any errors). I arrived in Austin yesterday afternoon. I got settled in my hotel and then last night eased into SXSW by seeing three bands.
|Polica||Indie post rock four piece band which consists of a vocals, bass, two sets of drums and keys. Some of their songs were quite catchy but some just didn’t work.|
|Bleached||Three female vocalists who play bass and guitar with a male drummer. Someplace between punk and raw but frequently melodic rock. A hit!!|
Thao and the Get Down Stay Down
|Indie pop. Thao herself is infectiously peppy but the band’s songs meander too much and ultimately they are not for me.|
