austin is a madhouse! sxsw is in full-swing. the music started yesterday (tuesday) so, i went walking around the affected area looking for new bands thinking that i might just "happen" upon some artist or band that would be life-changing. maybe day 2 will bring me more luck. after i post this interview, i'm going to plot out what i'm going to see and who i'm going to try to interview for the rest of the week. liars & saints plays tomorrow (thurs. 3/15) at maria's tacos at 1:30 pm for the ruby stardust lounge event. and at 4 pm for the lucy's fried chicken event. if you're in austin for sxsw, come out as the liars & saints shows tomorrow will be my last with the band.
my guest for episode 52 is ringo deathstarr's singer/guitarist, elliot frazier. a few years ago, my cousin emily played me ringo deathstarr... i fell in love! i was happy that elliot was able to stop by last week and spend some time telling me about his experiences in beaumont, how the band started, gazing at shoes, working with frenchy, touring the u.s., europe and japan, being fucking loud, touring with smashing pumpkins earlier this year and....ringo. i was glad we go to sit down and talk. elliot is really cool and his band is amazing. enjoy!
