1) It’s Southby-Stopover Season continues with NSFWNKD Parade of Flesh’s Deep Ellum-based, multi-day fest that brings mid-level-and-bigger touring acts who have been at SXSW to Deep Ellum venues before they head home. This year’s lineup’s highlights:
Friday: Ritt Momney at Club Dada, with the Bralettes, and GYMSHORTS. I don’t know anything about Ritt Momney, and I think their name is dumb, but I love the Bralettes, and GYMSHORTS (from Rhode Island) play a buzzy, breezy, Ramones-ish brand of stoner punk that kind of sounds like a heavy sativa strain chuffed through a really long bong and then laff-koffing because you realize just how on-brand a pothead you’ve become.
Saturday: Jerry Paper at Three Links, with Hala and Alys Revere. This bill fits in with the Spotify playlist you make that overlaps with the more dream-pop stuff from the High Maintenance soundtrack, which you can also find on Spotify. IMO, the first season’s soundtrack is the best.
Sunday: Mike Krol at Club Dada, with Psychedelic Prn Crumpets and Frankie & the Witch Fingers. Mike Krol is power pop that kind of reminds me of Jacuzzi Boys.
I don’t know if you can buy a wristband for this whole thing or not. You’ll have to do your own digging, and probably buy tickets to each thing separately, but here’s a link to get you started on this quest. Here’s a video of a Breath of the Wild speedrun, because I typed the words “link” and “quest,” and now Legend of Zelda is on my brain:
2) Gah that was a lot to write, so here’s a short one: Friday night at MASS: Dead Soft, Joe Gorgeous, Ferals, and Ting Tang Tina at MASS (1002 S Main). Doors at 8, 18+ (or younger if you have a grownup with you), cover is between $5 and $10. Here’s a Dead Soft video:
