SXSW Day Four: MOG Party
Before The Black Keys played, we had the opportunity to see a handful of bands and drink just as many alcoholic beverages. I started with bloody Mary's (since the venue opened at noon this was the obvious choice) and ended on beer.
First up: Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers
Loved them! She had an unusual singing voice and It agreed with my ears. Dale said she looked like a soccer mom until she opened her mouth at which point her vocal growl would kick you in the nuts. I didn't get the "soccer mom" vibe from her, but I understood what he meant.
After Shilpa, The Dum Dum Girls took the stage.
This one made me want to get bangs. My little sister told me that if I did, it would look like I had 80's hair so I refrained from taking a trip to the salon.
RYE RYE was up next:
OMG! I loved her, her DJ, and her two dancers. It was very reminiscent of early 90's dance hip-hop. She had the entire crowd dancing and asking for more. Very fun!
Dale and I were starting to feel the buzz at this point:
I am going to print the above two photos out and hang them in the guest bedroom.
Freelance Whales performed next:
Lot's-o-people in this band. They were pleasant but we had to cut out of their set early to get outside for The Black Keys. I will tell you about that in the next post.
Until then, ya'll be good.
