The Breakfast Taco

posted by on February 7 at 10:33 AM

Where are the Lemonheads in there?

Today’s ingredients: 1,594 bands, Tapatio sauce.

SXSW’s first official lineup has been posted, and lest you wonder why the hell an outlet all the way up here is bothering to post about a fest in Texas, this unending list of bands may help.

Lots of previously unannounced national/international treats on here…here’s what stands out in my first run-through of the list: Akron/Family, Astronautilus, Castanets, Billy Bragg, Elliott Brood, The Concretes, Dr. Dog, El-P, Evangelista / Carla Bozulich, Jana Hunter, Legendary Shack Shakers, The Lemonheads, Lucero, Madlib, The Meatmen (whoa, really? the ’80s punks who wrote the song “Crippled Children Suck?” holy shit.), Tift Merritt, Thurston Moore, The Octopus Project, Ola Podrida, Peter & The Wolf, Phosphorescent, The Sadies, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Tokyo Police Club, Two Gallants, The Weakerthans, White Denim, Yo La Tengo, and motherfuckin’ HANSON. In bad news: Oates still hasn’t signed on to play with Daryl Hall. Shit.

Of more interest to y’all might be Seattle’s official contributions, many of which were previously unannounced:

David Bazan
The Blakes
Blue Scholars
The Boss Martians
Sera Cahoone
Cave Singers
Coconut Coolouts
The Fall-Outs
Fleet Foxes
Fourcolorzack & Pretty Titty
Grand Archives
Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden
The Lonely H
Ian Moore
Mark Pickerel
Presidents of the USA
The Saturday Knights
Say Hi
Steve E Nix & the Cute Lepers
Throw Me The Statue
J. Tillman
Trespassers William
Unnatural Helpers

Other WA haunts…ABERDEEN: Black Top Demon. ANACORTES: Karl Blau. TACOMA: Lozen. From the list above, it looks like Seattle hip-hop and soul will represent in Texas come mid-March, no? If you dare peruse the thousands of bands, lemme know what names stick out.

Aww, Bearsuit is playing. They are cute.

Duchess Says rules and they've only been to Seattle once, to open for Les Georges Leningrad, and I missed it them because I was stuck with someone who didn't turn 21 until midnight that night.

Ahem: Jakob Dylan. That is all.

Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds rules too.

i got tired of looking at things i won't be seeing at about M.
