Rock Creek Social Club Does SXSW

Rock Creek Social Club always prided itself on eclecticism. At the collective's unpretentious weekly parties, you could hear the syrupy crawl of Drake’s “Cameras” as often as Backyard Band’s cover of Raphael Saadiq’s “Still Ray.” Soon enough, Wale and Common were dropping by the party, and Goodlife Tuesdays became the best worst-kept secret in D.C. But after [...]

Listen: Gems, “Never Age”

We were so busy slobbering over Gems' new "Pegasus" song that we neglected to mention this equally exquisite tune from the D.C. dream-pop duo: "Never Age," recently released on a limited-edition 7-inch from San Francisco's Turntable Kitchen. (The 7-inch has since sold out.)

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 [...]

Photos: D.C. Goes to SXSW

D.C. bands that attended the musical segment of South by Southwest in Austin, Texas spanned musical genres. The annual DC does TX day party provided a nice array, including the intelligent indie rock of Dischord artist Soccer Team and the ecstatic, psychedelic post-punk of Kid Congo Powers & the Pink Monkey Birds. I was also happy [...]

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 [...]
