MPMF15 – I Fell Off the Wagon

I failed miserably at posting my recommendations this week. It’s hard ┬ámoving to another city and trying to suck every amazing experience out of it as quickly as possible. See other blog posts for more on that topic.

Here’s what I would have recommended this week had I managed to do it.

  • American Wrestlers
  • Caspian
  • Public
  • Roadkill Ghost Choir
  • Ggoolldd
  • Diet Cig
  • Sweet and the Sweet Sweets

Here’s what I have already seen and loved. The only reason these bands didn’t make my must-see is because I have seen them, in some cases multiple times. They are excellent, don’t let the fact that I might skip them for acts I haven’t seen dissuade you from checking them out.

Now all that’s left to do is get my Schedule for the fest sorted. I say that as though this is an easy task. It’s not. Post coming soon.

Bunbury 2014: Must See Fitz and the Trantrums and Young the Giant

I’ve seen both these bands before. They both put up solid performances. If you are looking for pop-candy goodness head to Fitz. If you are looking for indie rock with a slightly unapproachable sound head to Young the Giant.

See? Pop goodness. Prepare yourself, the woman that does backing vocals puts on one hell of a show.

See? Indie rock that is melodic yet slightly unapproachable. I will be seeing both of these bands again at Bunbury.

Next week, I will share my picks for the local bands that are book at the festival. I’ve seen most of them. Let me take the next few days to consider whether I will consider Heartless Bastards a local band given that they are currently out of Austin but started here in The Queen City.
