My friend, Michelle, just text-messaged me from Austin, where she is catching Wu Tang at Stubb’s. It’s 3:30pm in Austin and the officially scheduled music at Stubb’s doesn’t even start until 8pm, with this awesome lineup:
8pm Deadboy & the Elephantmen (Houma LA)
9pm Noisettes (London UK)
10pm The Fiery Furnaces (New York NY)
11pm The Dresden Dolls (Boston MA)
12am Gomez (Southport UK)
1am Nickel Creek (Carlsbad CA)
She says she caught a ride with The Dresden Dolls this morning and they were nice and friendly.
I asked if they were wearing black, but she seemed surprised and said they weren’t. This is how they looked when I saw them at Coachella last year:
I just took a close look at the SXSW schedule for last night and realized that World Party and The Plimsouls played on the same stage.
What am I doing in San Francisco?!
Well, at least I caught the live in-studio performance by World Party on KGSR this morning.
