METALSUCKS AT SXSW 2008
So it’s that time of year again, when hundreds of annoying hipster bands and hundreds of thousands of annoying hipster fans descend on Austin, TX for the five day non-stop
drug and alcohol binge music festival South by Southwest. Whatwhat hipster rags like Brooklyn Vegan and Pitchfork (and I think even Stereogum) suddenly deciding they are now covering metal, this year actually sports a pretty impressive smattering of metal bands.
Though your esteemed editors Axl and Vince will not be attending this year (nor will Kip, whose friendship with the MetalSucks brethren was forged through a couple of all-night benders at last year’s festival), we’d like to introduce MetalSucks correspondent and talented writer Corey Mitchell, who will be giving us a day-by-day account of the various metal goings-on in Austin. You may also know him as MetalSucks commenter LiquidMan666. We’re psyched to have Corey on board.
After the jump, a full list of the events Corey will (God willing) be attending. It’s also a pretty comprehensive collection of all metal-related happenings at SXSW, so if you’re going to the festival you might want to check it out. And of course, feel free to send any show or party tips / reviews / whatever to news [at] metalsucks.net.
