SXSW – Estados Alterados

These guys were one of my favorite surprises this SXSW. From Medellín, Colombia, this band from the late eighties sometimes can sound a lot like Depeche Mode with a little Moenia, which they predate… so I guess Moenia sounds a little like them.

SXSW 2010 Music Day 3

At this point I’m feeling the effects of two days of concerts plus longer than usual workdays. But I had to get back to Auditorium Shores to see a classic rock act.

Cheap Trick

Not only are they still alive and playing, but they currently have the Top Selling 8-track in the World! These guys were playing before I was born… I mean, I thought La Maldita Vecindad looked old but these people make them look like Hanna Montana. I only know a few of their songs yet it was a really good concert.
