SOME ROCK N’ ROLL FROM BROKEN TEETH TO KICK OFF YOUR THURSDAY
We’ve been getting a lot of emails about SXSW over the past couple of weeks. Every band’s got an agenda and every band’s got a mini-tour to and from Austin to support their SXSW dates. STP, Hole and the Deftones are some of the bigger acts rumored to be playing this year’s festival. That’s all well and good, but aren’t these fests supposed to be more about music discovery and breaking new bands? Friggin’ Metallica played last year. Not that seeing STP or Metallica in small venues isn’t sweet, but… ya know. Things have kind of gotten blown out of proportion.
So any time I get an email from a SXSW band (or their PR folk) I haven’t heard of, I make it a point to click the link. And hey lookee here, I actually found a good band!
The band is called Broken Teeth. They’re from Austin and they play rock and roll. Some assholes will probably find it shocking that I’ve never heard of this band before, but fuck you. Watch and listen.
