I’m not even sure what it means for a Food network D-list celeb to be sponsoring some kind of SXSW party , but it sure confirms that SXSW is the most over-exposed piece of rotting feces on the music map. Attendance at FXFU should swell this year. “Rachel Ray loves “indie” rock.” Huh? I think we’ve now fallen through the looking glass’s looking glass when using this term.
Name of the party: “FEEDBACK Showcase…a feast of hot bands and tasty foods” That just took the rock and roll out of SXSW right there.
I bet her husband’s band plays. That’s right. I know my Rachel Ray.
PerezHilton is having a showcase too. FUCK YEAH!On a good solid sidenote… for any persons trapped in the area during that time. Topple Records will be representing TWO DAYS this year and a very unofficial, very rock, fiasco, thumping our noses to the jack-off fest to the west.The Ides of Topple PartyMarch 14th and 15th, 1-6pm@the Vortex, Austin, TXFeaturing:Alina Simone! http://www.myspace.com/alinasimoneMoses and the Burning Bush! http://www.myspace.com/mosesandtheburningbushTaco Leg! http://www.myspace.com/tacoleglovesmyspaceGraham Webber! http://www.myspace.com/grahamweberThe Easies! http://www.myspace.com/easiesmusicNortone! http://www.myspace.com/nortoneEl Paso Heist! http://www.myspace.com/theelpasoheistSmash Riley! http://www.myspace.com/smashrileySchatzy! http://www.myspace.com/schatzyMadam Robot and the Lust Brigade! http://www.myspace.com/madamrobot
