The Village Voice SXSW Party Was Really Spectacular And We’re Not Just Saying That Because These People Employ Us

by

Not a clunker in the bunch of this year’s VVM SXSW afternoon party at La Zona Rosa: Surfer Blood, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Superchunk, the xx. Surfer Blood, who’d by now lost count which number show this was, opened–and they are, as we later discovered, the nicest kids ever. Pains of Being Pure at Heart brought out new songs, remained earnestly cute. Superchunk did “Slack Motherfucker” (!). The xx caused a mook behind us to fake a lady-gasm–look/hope for a Surfer Blood collaboration in the not-too-distant future. Full gallery of self-aggrandizing photos over here, selected highlights below.
