Hundred Visions @ SXSW | Review

Hundred Visions will be your next search on Spotify if you’re into jam bands.  Assuming you’re reading this on The Grateful Web, you are.  I saw them at my first official showcase of SXSW, at one of Austin’s best under-the-radar music venues, Hotel Vegas.  The band is local which makes the experience that much more personal—a reminder you never have to look very far to find the next great thing.

Polica @ SXSW | Review

If you only saw one show at SXSW, I hope it was Polica.  If you didn’t see them, I hope you’re listening to them in your cubicle right now.  Although, to be fair, their recordings don’t do them justice.  The band’s live performances are like breathing life and reality into the abstract.  If bands were pieces of art they’d be a Picasso masterpiece.

London Grammar @ SXSW | Review

Considering what they’ve done, it’s hard to believe London Grammar released their first album If You Wait a mere six months ago.  It featured their already-popular EP Metal & Dust from earlier in the year.  Immediately, they were on the radar, hitting the top of the charts in UK and Australia.  One more example, last week they opened for Coldplay.  Yes, really.  It sounds beyond ludicrous that they have already had so much success, until you hear them.
