Last Night, Rocker Stalker Said…: SXSW 2013 Day 4

The fourth day of SX was a day well spent on South Congress.  I kicked off my day at a small outdoor, garden party with punk and pizza at The Pizza Shop, that had pretty amazing thincrust pizza (even after being spoiled by NYC pizza).  There, punk/rockabilly band out of Austin, Something Called  Nothing was busting out some swinging tracks in the sunshine before The Phuss rocked out a  set accmpanied by some backyard moshing before hitting the stage yet again at Doc Motorworks later that afternoon.  Heading back to Doc Motorworks, Deton, TX’s  The Birds of Night accompanied the 80+degree weather with surfy tones and throwback vibes.  Up next, Fort Worth’s Roaming Soldiers became one of my top new bands of this year’s SXSW, winning my heart with rock ‘n roll grit, bluesy sass, and southern twang.  The close to my day of music wasn’t too shabby.  I got a chance to catch Stilwater, Oklahoma’s rootsy rockers,  Taddy Porter, before scampering off to The Auditorium Shores to see the bizarre antics of the one, the only  The Flaming Lips.  At the Shores, the field was packed with hula hoop dancers and people wearing strobing, seizure-inducing lights/jewelry. A theatrical performance by The Flaming Lips included quirky frontman, Wayne Coyne, wearing a robe of umbillical-like cords, while he held a fetus manikin. The kings of the unexpected, this show certainly lived up to the odd but impressive showmanship.
