SXSW Music: Esben and The Witch

Hello from Austin, Texas! The SXSW Music Festival is fully under way, and it’s already a bit overwhelming. I’ll be posting galleries of bands I caught (some, like this, will just be one band, others will be a mix of acts I saw) with special attention paid to bands from or connected to Maine, those . . . → Read More: SXSW Music: Esben and The Witch

SXSW Bands: Goes Cube (Brooklyn, NY)

South By Southwest 2011 is just under a month away, and enjoying 5 days of nonstop live music requires a bit of preparation. I’ll be looking at some of the acts I hope to catch, including bands from Maine, those who regularly play in Portland, and national acts who will hopefully make it through here . . . → Read More: SXSW Bands: Goes Cube (Brooklyn, NY)
