So you wanna see TEENAGE COOL KIDS at sxsw?
Though we will not be playing any official showcases, you (rock music enthusiast) will have a few chances to see us play (enthusiastic rock music) in Austin during the annual "week you won't remember." Each of these shows look promising of good vibes and sweet tunes.
We will be running around town with our sister band FERGUS & GERONIMO and two bloggers from London, trying to squeeze as much fun and good music out of our state's capital before heading south to Monterrey to keep the party going.
Thursday night's "KVRXplosion" (1109 n. I-35) is one show we are really looking forward to. The fact that we are playing with Wu Tang's own GZA (the Genius) is mind-boggling in itself but to make things even more "rag-tag", the bill also includes raging hardcore/grind from Canadians THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE and Austin locals HATRED SURGE. F&G are playing the Weekly Tape Deck "Shake Some Action!" party Thursday evening as well.
Friday starts off with the Transparent showcase at the Tiniest Bar in Texas on 5th, with F&G and other bands from the UK label. TCK play two shows Friday. The first is Don't Tell Mom Fest at the House of Commons co-op. This is a free show that will have great bands playing all day (including but not limited to: THE PHARMACY, SHANNON & THE CLAMS, HUNX AND HIS PUNX, WILD AMERICA.) This looks like a great show to post up at and see a lot of good bands. We are scheduled to play at 5:50, and are followed by Denton bro-bands OCCULT DETECTIVE CLUB and STYMIE. You can see the complete schedule on the last.fm event page.
Then it's back to Karibu Ethiopian Restaurant on E 7th for night two of Weekly Tape Deck's "Shake Some Action!" party, TCK are scheduled for 8:40
Saturday you get a chance to see TCK and F&G at the same show. Both bands will be playing the KVRX showcase at Domy Books. Later that evening F&G will be playing the Woodsist showcase at Red7 (w/ WOODS, REAL ESTATE, FRESH AND ONLYS) which will no doubt be an awesome show.
On sunday all surviving members of the troupe will head down to Monterrey, MX for the MTY MX festival where F&G and TCK will play one more time before returning home to our respective homes.
We look forward to your patronage and appreciate the interest, we will try to have some sort of merchandise to peddle off on you, we will definitely have some records and hopefully shirts too, we shall see what we can get together in these next couple weeks.
Until then... One Love,
TEENAGE COOL KIDS
