Haim // "Let Me Go" (Live at SXSW)

Yes, I'm still on a "Haim high" and I just found this little gem from SXSW at Lambert's. I wasn't at this show but I've seen this song performed live. The quality of sound isn't the best, but it gets the point across that these girls know how to rock. I know you'll watch the whole video but here's a little incentive: 4-piece drum solo at the end. It is mind-blowing.

Sidenote: Here are some bands that I've been listening to but haven't gotten the chance to write about: Daughter, Dry The River, Hospitality, and the new Geographer album, Myth.

Haim : Forever EP

I cannot get over this band. Seeing them at the Warby Parker party during SXSW was such a wonderful discovery, especially when they broke out into a 4-piece drum solo. It blew my mind and I can't get enough of their Forever EP- I want more! It's rock, harmonious, a little bit tribal, & pop-y. And I'm reading that they're sisters? Well, a family that rocks together, stays together. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for any album announcements.

SXSW Party // Warby Parker: The Citizen's Circus

If you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere and a great lineup during SXSW, might I suggest swinging over by East Austin and attending the Warby Parker party? They've got a spectacular set up and some talented curated bands like Yellow Ostrich, La Sera, Shearwater, and the headlining band The Citizens Band. It's like they've created their own festival experience including food trucks, lawn games, local sells, and the best of all, the Warby Parker yurts. Warby Parker is an eyeglass company that believe in designer glasses at an affordable price. They've got wonderful, trendy frames so come by and see what it's all about. You might see some of their customized bikes that carry the frames, both sunglasses and eyeglasses.
Hope to see y'all there!
