There were two pre-parties in Austin on the Thursday night before the official festival began. Both clubs (Red 7 & Mohawk) had substantial lines to get in so easily switching back and forth was impossible. Happily, I did get to see All In The Golden Afternoon – their album Magic Lighthouse on the Infinite Sea is a fave around here.
I hadn’t seen the Rain Parade since 1985 and it was great to catch one of the few reunion shows. “No Easy Way Down” still slays.
The Austin Chronicle interviews Matt Piucci about the reunion.
Flavor Crystals were playing in the room right next door. Really like their sound.
