What a craz-ay weekend. You would have thought I’d traveled to both SXSW and come back for the Big XII championship game. Maybe I just lived it all without having to be there physically, but wow do I feel like a bus ran me over. (That, and work is just a bite right now.)
So I slacked on my SXSW duties. I think I got a little hacked off by the Thursday list of ‘sleepers’ by the Chronicle. They actually listed Yeasayer and The Weakerthans as ‘sleepers’ – yeah, whatever. But they did get one right that I hope some new folks were turned on by: Wussy.
WOXY.com has given the Cincy band some exposure. We’ll see if their SXSW appearance will boost their profile a little more. So let me go back and highlight a few more bands that played late last week.

From Saturday’s sleeper list:
Ha Ha Tonka – This name caught my eye on the list as it’s a State park in Missouri (which I’ve visited). How can you not check out a place called Ha Ha Tonka State Park if given the opportunity? Just a little reference for ya – I’ve linked you to a blog that talks about the mansion and its ruins…pretty wild when you’re actually there to imagine how they got all the supplies to that remote location!
