'Indie Radio Rocks The World 2' Parties Announced: Tuesday, March 13 and Wednesday, March 14 @ Bernadette's Bar

Since semi-retiring from booking events, I thought everyone was satisfied with unofficial gig referrals for this year's SXSW Music Fest, but fate and determination to showcase (and party with) the artists I appreciate conspired to create Indie Radio Rocks The World 2!

We have 24+ confirmed music acts from overseas, out-of-town, and in your neighborhood bringing the rompus (rock + rumpus) to Austin for two days during SXSW! Join us for a second year of presenting indie music - on and off the radio.

For performances and schedules (TBA soon), go to the official unofficial SXSW event blog: indieradiorocks.tumblr.com.

Unofficial SXSW showcase and party attendees also have event planning options to take the confusion out of attending showcases and parties - and not miss on free events and extras, like complimentary drinks and food. Here are links to our event, where you can also do your other party attendance planning:

  • Sched, a favorite app (that doesn't require installation), celebrates 5 years of unofficial SXSW event scheduling. Don't forget to add Day 1 and Day 2 of Indie Radio Rocks The World 2 to your sched. Hint-hint...
  •  With Eventbrite, you have the option of printing a ticket for you and friends, but no real need to, because if your name is registered as a guest for our event and you're one of the first 50 ticket registrants, you will receive one extra complimentary bottle of Honest Tea (one bottle per name only). 
  • Do512 is another helpful way to keep up with events. 
  • The social network Facebook also serves as an event hub for those who want a quick glance and RSVP.

A Beyond OKlahoma Psychedelic, Post Punk Rock Experience: The Electric Primadonnas, The Escatones, Devour The World, and Shardz @ Skinny's Ballroom, Fri. 3/2, 9pm

Updated Mon. 2/20/12, 10:50 pm

The Electric Primadonnas have evolved into a psychedelic, "freakbeat" garage rock band with a two town residency: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma where they began, and Los Angeles, CA, where one of their co-founding members now resides. But don't think a minor issue like a few thousand miles makes a difference with the musical connection the band continues to make with recordings and live performances. They are joining psychedelic/surf garage rock faves The Escatones on a musical excursion in Texas, which includes performances in Austin, Texas. They'll be playing early at Trailer Space Records, 7pm, then joining Austin-based folk/psych Rycootermelontramp, post punk ponderers Devour The World, and prodigious cellist & soundscape artist Shardz (Joey Reyes of Whale Watch) at Skinny's Ballroom, 9pm.

'Black Friday Solo Massacre' w/ Messy Sparkles, Smokey Emery, XPPR5-9, R. Lee Dockery, Shardz, and Andy Hendrix & The Skwaarmalar Machine @ Red 7 - Fri. 11/25, 8pm

The day after Thanksgiving, shop at locally owned businesses, but don't shop 'til you drop so you can enjoy an extraordinary night at Red 7's "Black Friday Solo Massacre"

The lineup of unique music composers and performers includes:

Eclectic electronic dance/tropical pop artist Messy Sparkles, who brings the party to Austin, Texas via Fayetteville, Arkansas.  Smokey Emery is Daniel Hipolito, a prolific experimental composer of ambient arrangements.  Self-described "borecore" music artist XPPR5-9 sets sociopolitical observations to enjoyable acousmatic tape music that traverses genres - from country to lounge pop.  Respected sound maker R. Lee Dockery (Kendra Steiner Records) brilliantly performs on acoustic and electronic instruments.  Shardz is also known as Joey Reyes of Whale Watch, concert and improv/prog rock cellist who performs ethereal solo sets with f/x pedals.  Andy Hendrix & The Skwaarmalar Machine produces ambient waves of noise described as a colorful, psychedelic experience. 

Plus visual performances:

Vidkidz, bedazzlers of the night astrally project, and Fresh Fuckerman (better known as Stephen Fishman of Total Unicorn), projects mind-blowing visions.   

The solo showcase begins on the inside stage of Red 7, 611 E 7th St. in Austin, Texas at 8:00 pm, Friday, November 25, 2011. This is an all ages event. The cover charge is $5 and $7 for ages under 21.
