He\'s a rapper. And apparently sort of an average one.

Just saw that Naked Raygun\'s playing. Crazy!

And jus\' like every year, niggas will all pile down to SXSW hopin\' to capture the attention of anybody other than their immediate entourage of idiots and suck-ups. They\'ll walk away with nothing but a laminate and OxyContin hangover, and we\'ll all go about our lives as if nothing ever happened.

Or maybe Lance Armstrong will spill his beer on your boots and you\'ll have a story to sell to TMZ.

6:04: So you are not supossed to escape your inner circle?
Also, a gig is a gig.

Who cares about any of those people? They\'ve been playing sxsw for years now. And as far as mom and ghosthustler go, I\'m sick of \'em. They just aren\'t that good.

damn gina said...

You\'re not that good either. You\'re gay and dumb and stupid and retarded and bad and mean and ugly and smelly and look like a pig. Can we be friends?

I am gay and so I have to agree that Mom is way overrated and over-hyped much like Ghosthustler. It\'s not my cup of tea but still I think they\'re getting way too much attention for what they are.

i personally love oxycontin hangovers so i will be there for sure

anyone can play sxsw. anyone. no biggie. and that\'s exactly what this list reflects. been there. done that. so what? make good albums and save money on gas... and stanton meadowdale\'s rip off of \'sweet jane\', his \'jenny brown\', is absolutely both shameful and disgusting. have a listen and cringe.

record hop is way overrated. they\'re boring, and i\'m sick of seeing their name everywhere. ashley cromeen\'s solo stuff is far more interesting. sonic youth has been there, done that, and did it better. get a grip dfw.

The Crash That Took Me is also playing.

Naked Raygun alone is worth the trip to Austin. Hopefully they add a Dallas show

damn, i think it\'s pretty obvious someone on here is pissed they aren\'t playing sxsw or pissed that they don\'t ever get any attention other than people replying to their anonymous hate posts. sorry man, have a drink and accept it\'s over for you. better you than me. :)

So, you hate mom, ghosthustler, record hop, and stanton meadowdale. Got it.

None of which, by the way, who have played SXSW.

did the haters band apply?

so if you think that mom and ghosthustler and record hop are getting too much attention......who do you think is not?

shed some light on this for us.

msamantham said...

nasty, nasty, nasty. most of the bands being dissed haven\'t played sxsw before! and what\'s wrong with playing sxsw, mic checka? most of these folks know that they\'re not going to get a big break at sxsw (although i\'ve seen it happen with at least one denton band), but it\'s totally worth it to go play some shows to a different crowd and have the ability to go and see all kinds of others shows for free. concerning the negative comments about bands - sure, you got a right to your opinion. don\'t listen! the stanton meadowdale stuff seems personal, though. lyle deserves a bit better than that

The hater seems to spend too much time on about 3 websites. Because other than wsjr, g v b, and myspace, I never see shit about any local bands period. Go get some sun.
