SXSW Roundup Day 4: New Myths // Holy Nothing // Inhalt // More
We could have stayed the entire afternoon to see artists like Julia Jacklin, Big White, DMAs and many more. But we needed to head off to a panel with NPR All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen and Wall Street Journal editor Jimmy Fusilli.
On the way back we stopped again at the Aussie BBQ to see a few songs by [Methyl Ethel(http://www.methylethel.com/) another Australian band on the way to stardom.
Over at the Fader Fort we saw a few songs by White Lung before heading back for a dinner at Moonshine Grill. A major thunderstorm was brewing and we were lucky to be in safety when the rain came down. The heavy rain though caused changes in the schedule, that’s we could see a set by California singer/songwriter Monogem.
Next up, New Myths from New York, another must-see three-piece on our list: New Myths are always a delight to experience on stage. Their debut album was released in 2014 and I hope that they put out new material soon.
Portuguese electronic three-piece Holy Nothing played at The Hideout on Congress, which is a music venue turned movie theater. The location put a limit on what they could do on stage, but it worked very well. We loved it! Update: More Photos.
The last show of the evening happened again at the Lucky Lounge. The San Francisco duo Inhalt were playing their dark wave synth pop in front of a frantically dancing crowd. They take not only the German lyrics as cues from the “Neue Deutsche Welle”, but Elke and I could not come up with a band who actually did this kind of music in the 80s. Great music, great energy.
