Last week we offered an extensive list of L.A.-based bands hitting South by Southwest in Austin this year (March 13-16). Alas, we missed three of them, all from the beautiful township of Midcity, Cali. This from Brian Miller:
Noticed on the la weekly sxsw blog that 3 la acts are missing. I have
a feeling its because they are registered as all being from Midcity,
CA … midcity being the neighborhood in la around the 10 freeway and
fairfax. Could you please add them to the list?”
the acts are:
Captain Ahab (watch this video right now, but you have to commit to watching it to the very end).
They'll all be playing the Cock Rock Disco / Deathbomb Arc / Load
3-way collab showcase. Below is the press release for it.
We know you're looking forward to ging to SXSW, but we also know that
after 2 days and nights of wanna-be-indy-rock you also get tired. You
want to sort of clean them ears out, and well, it's Saturday so you
want to party. Well have we got the answer for you! Cock Rock Disco,
Deathbomb Arc and Load Records team up for a 3-label, 2-stage meltdown
of party-noise so awesome you'll surely not want to leave the
premises! On the outside stage Load Records (Providence) brings you:
Clockcleaner, White Mice, Justice Yeldham, Sightings, and $hit and
$hine. While inside Deathbomb Arc (Los Angeles) and Cock Rock Disco
(Berlin) bring you: Jason Forrest, Captain Ahab, Foot Village, DJ
Scotch Egg, Kevin Shields, and Nero's Day At Disneyland. And yes,
outside the venue, in their wold-renown van, will be Friends Forever!
Both floors are open to the other, and we guarantee you more moshing
fun than most other venues combined! Where else will you be able to
see glass eating (Justice Yeldham), the greatest living gameboy
performer on earth (Dj Scotch Egg), Homo-Viking-Trance (Captain Ahab)
and Kevin Shields all in one place? So be sure to be at the Scoot
Inn, all god-damn night!”
