The Mae Shi @ Maggie Mae’s, SXSW 2009 Day 1, Weds March 18th.


Wow yesterday was Day 1 of 5 for music at SXSW 2009. I’m feeling a little wonky but here’s a run through of my highlights from yesterday starting with this post and going up ^

mp3: The Mae Shi – Are U Professional?

The Mae Shi – who the f£$K are they? Yep that’s what I thought. These guys were the first band I caught yesterday and very nearly the best. Amazing punk energy from this L.A. based four piece (signed to Moshi Moshi in the UK but unsigned elsewhere). The highlight of which was when singer/guitarist and drummer came into the crowd, covered us with a parachute and performed the intro to one of their tracks from underneath. Amazing! Really loud, really passionate music. The above mp3 is a song they made out of Christian Bale’s infamous rant on the set of the new Terminator movie. It’s great but check out their MySpace for more typical (if there is such a thing with this band) songs.

For Fans Of: And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, The Flaming Lips, Future Of The Left, Titus Andronicus.
