It was only right that a weekday after my best man showed up for the weekend that I had the opportunity to relax and recover with the soothing sounds of Sigur Ros. Welp, it mostly happened. I’ve seen them before at the Uptown Tehater in Kansas City way back when and remember such a jovial, quiet style. I guess I didn’t remember everything correctly. They somehow managed to kick my ass in a completely eloquent style. Read the rest of this entry »

Believe it or not, there was plenty of acts to roll on through Austin after SXSW to keep my bill full. So, instead of bangning out an individual post for each, I will shoot through them with highlights. Bang. Bang. Read the rest of this entry »
