SXSW Day Four: MOG Party

On day four of SXSW Dale and I stood in line for over an hour to see The Black Keys play at the MOG party. Lee stayed home and continued to sleep and J3 had to attend meetings like a grown-up.

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.
Ha!

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.

1. I love the tights that the Dum Dum girls were wearing.

2. I think I might love RYE RYE.

I'm with Bee, those tights are TIGHT! (See what I did there?) And just FMI (for MY information), what's up with the random comments? I'm kinda jealous.
