SXSW Showcase Summary

iambowman:

It’s been nearly a week since my SXSW showcase - Tavia and I are finally in the process of sorting out all the photos, footage, and audio from the show and week itself, but I figure I might as well give a good summation of how it went.

The Velveeta Room is a pretty charming venue normally used for stand-up comedy in downtown Austin - I believe it’s an annex of next door venue Esther’s Follies. We were the first act of six that evening and would be followed by Mansions on the Moon, Brite Futures, Octant, New Moods, and Paper Route. Our 40-minute set was as follows:

  • Tacit Blue
  • Chain of Prospit
  • I’m a Member of the Midnight Crew
  • Cerulean Skies
  • Dawn of Man
  • Ithaca
  • Fly
  • Old Buggy Now
  • How Do I Live

Tavia joined the band to belly-dance during “I’m a Member of the Midnight Crew” and “Ithaca”, and local Sollux cosplayer Evan Seligman was selected from the audience to take the epic air guitar solo during the show’s conclusion.

Overall the show was thrilling as all hell and we played to an apparently sold-out crowd. To those who were turned away at the door, just remember that I intend to keep playing whenever I get the chance. Thank you again to all the fundraiser backers, concert-goers, and online followers for making this show happen - this was a killer first time on stage and it certainly won’t be the last.

Here’s another fundraiser-related commission. Alex Coady pledged for a 1-2 minute piece that would be “upbeat, melodic, and happy”, and out came this little ditty titled “Get Start!” Features mostly wordless vocals and additional sequencing by Astro Kid
