Dag Nasty Plans Reunion to Coincide with Salad Days Event

Dag Nasty, the melodic hardcore band from D.C. credited with (or accused of) paving the way for emocore, is planning to reunite for one magical evening at the Black Cat Dec. 28.
The reunion will include original members Shawn Brown, Brian Baker, Roger Marbury, and Colin Sears, the lineup that wrote much of Dag Nasty's well-loved debut [...]

Lungfish May or May Not Be Infinite

In promoting A.C.R. 1999, a new release of some long-shelved Lungfish recordings, the folks at Dischord say the following: "The band is renowned for intense creative productivity, releasing albums annually from the years 1992–2000. But what is not generally known is that volumes of Lungfish material never saw the light of day." That's right, y'all, [...]

Heat Wave: Edie Sedgwick Goes to SXSW—The End

We wake up in Knoxville, Tenn., and drive to Harrisonburg, Va. It is the last day of our SXSW tour.
We exit I-40 at Dolly Parton's Dollywood to eat at a much-praised pancake house. We find that the pancake house is closed. I eat French fries and a garden salad at a Wendy’s near the highway.
Not [...]

Heat Wave: Edie Sedgwick Goes to SXSW, Day 12

We leave New Orleans at 9:30 a.m. to drive what one friend calls “every bit of 10 hours” to Knoxville, Tenn. This drive takes us through the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and a corner of Georgia before depositing us safely in the Eastern Time Zone. In Knoxville—which, in the words of the promoter, is [...]

Heat Wave: Edie Sedgwick Goes to SXSW, Day 11

I try to collect the band and leave Austin at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 17—St. Patrick’s Day—to drive nine hours to New Orleans. But, before we go, Drummer J. needs breakfast tacos, Fill-In Bassist C. needs Advil, and Singer C. needs fried chicken. She fails to secure it—Church’s Chicken opens at 10 a.m., but [...]

Heat Wave: Edie Sedgwick Goes to SXSW, Day 10

I wake up on a tile floor, beset by cats. They play with my toes and pounce on my chest. They jump on my sleeping bag and jump off again. The cats are cute, as are many killers, including Ted Bundy, who worked for a Republican governor's campaign (please excuse About.com link). Plus, I’m allergic [...]

Heat Wave: Edie Sedgwick Goes to SXSW, Day 9

I wake up on a mattress in a friend’s bandmate’s house in Austin. Though I am a dog owner, a vegetarian and, at least in the presence of animals, a genial fellow, a pit bull mix two rooms away has decided, for reasons that she has chosen not to disclose, that I am an evil [...]

Heat Wave: Edie Sedgwick Goes to SXSW, Day 5

THE FOLLOWING IS A TRANSCRIPTION OF AN EMAIL SENT BY A 35-YEAR-OLD MAN TO HIS BOOKING AGENT—OR, AT LEAST, TO A GUY WHO HELPED HIM BOOK A FEW SHOWS IN THE MID-SOUTH—ON MARCH 13, 2012:
Dear [name redacted],
We had a fun show in Springfield, Mo., last night, but I wanted to let you know that we [...]
