Announcing the Village Voice 2010 SXSW Party, Featuring Superchunk, the xx, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and Surfer Blood


Yeah, it’s still months away, but someone has to kick SXSW season off, right? So it is with some pride and anticipation that we announce the Village Voice‘s 2010 SXSW party, featuring Superchunk, the xx, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and our old sparring partners, Surfer Blood. Friday, March 19, La Zona Rosa, Austin, TX, 12pm – 5pm. Free, first come first serve, open to the general public. These bands are alternately old friends and young heroes to us, so it just didn’t seem worth keeping it secret any longer. You will probably forget, but we will definitely remind you. And if you forgot who these other guys were in the first place…

Ha! Those are fighting words!
