Don't Believe the Hype...
The Grammy's were up to no good tonight, just like they are every year. I have never seen something so out of touch. I'm not saying these "indie" bands I write about deserve all of the credit. Even though some of them do, but please!
And speaking of things that involve both music and my broken heart. Muse will be on tour for the next few weeks with My Chemical Romance. I am not to happy to about this considering they will be in both Houston and San Antonio. But I don't see myself buying a ticket to see an opening band, and yes I would leave. On the other hand if anybody wants to take me? Well I might reconsider...
SXSW is in full effect and I am slowly compiling my list of day shows I will attend. I am also preparing for the 8pm hangovers I will have from all the day parties. I love me some SXSW! But in the spirit of the day show, I thought I would post some of the good ones that have come up.
Hot Freaks is one that is closest to my heart, a blogger curated music experience, will be taking place at The Mohawk and Club Deville over a couple of days. It is brought together by GorillavsBear, MOKB, Chromewaves, You Aint No Picasso, Largeheartedboy.com and my fav, Rock Insider. They better invite me to participate next year, this is my home! Ha ha... Really.
