Savannah, Georgia has this nice lil' Savannah Stopover festival that bands who are on their way to SXSW stop it. Goin' to a night of it and seein' Chelsea Light Moving, Merchandise, Mac DeMarco, and the Coathangers. Pretty stoked.
I've been seeing this guy's name everywhere the last month or two. I had never heard of him previous to seeing him open for Japandroids in December (which is weird since he lives in Vancouver) and was totally blown away by his performance. I almost thought he was going to steal the show from Japandroids until they came on and I realized that's probably not possible.
I may be coming to this but it is less than 50% likely. Good To Die records are putting on a showcase and I think that is right up your alley. If I do come out we have to grab a beer for sure.
I'm down with all of this. Based on stuff that you have talked about (shows and albums) I have listened to a bulk of the bands on that label. Sandrider are by far my favorite, but Brokaw and Gaythesist are pretty fucking amazing as well. Seeing them all on one bill could be a real treat.
Sled Island will be amazing, as it is every year. Hope you make it down for some shows soon.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
