SXSW Recap / I Heart Comix vs Mad Decent 3.14.08

From the rooftop of the NYC Garage

This event was one of the coolest as far as venues are concerned. It was held on the rooftop of a new condo in the middle of downtown. I have to give props to the organizers for picking such a good spot. One complaint. Having only one bar set up when there is such a large group of people is a HUGE mistake. The wait was so ridiculous! They made up for it by providing a great line up though.

We caught Cut Copy on first. They completely blew my mind and are up there on my list of best performances of the week. Simian Mobile Disco then put on a great set (too bad I was in line at the bar for most of it) and then Matt & Kim came on.

I just have to say they were the most fun band ever and are two of the happiest people you will ever meet in your life. I don't think it's possible for Kim not to smile :)
