Here's some tempting news from Three Imaginary Girls, and since I'm reasonably close, I'm quite inclined to go. They even threw in some free mp3s I'm passing along to you, so maybe we're all happy. Here's part of their email message.
Three Imaginary Girls is pleased as punch to announce our first-ever showcase at SXSW in Austin, Texas, with co-sponsors Magic Marker Records, Music Nation, and KOOP 91.7FM. The event will take place at Lovejoy's in downtown Austin on Thursday, March 15, 2007, from 12-6p. The show is free to the public, with free beer (while supplies last), and delightful live music from an international line-up of pop superstar bands:
12p: The Zebras (Brisbane, Australia)
1p: The Manhattan Love Suicides (Leeds, UK)
2p: BOAT (Seattle, WA)
3p: Tullycraft (Seattle, WA)
4p: The Faintest Ideas (Gothenburg, Sweden)
5p: Palomar (Brooklyn, NY)
And here are some of the tunes. We're having a bit of linking trouble, so please be patient. I'm leaving out some of the band links so the songs will work.
The Zebras – You Look Ready mp3 - See microlips for more good stripey sounds.
The Manhattan Love Suicides – Suzy Jones mp3
BOAT - The Bar Is Too Low To Fail mp3
The Faintest Ideas - Nosebleeders on the Track mp3
Tullycraft - Popsongs Your New Boyfriend's Too Stupid to Know About mp3
And now for the moral conundrum: Am I being used? I hope so.
