It might be easy to call it bias to say the best spot to be for most of Thursday at SXSW was at Live4ever’s ‘Two Fingered Salute’ hosted at Antone’s, but by the end of a series of exhilarating gigs, bias just didn’t come into the equation.
Some bands spend their entire careers wallowing in indie obscurity, never reaching the level of mainstream success they deserve due to an unwillingness to compromise their sound & style to fit into the basic pop package that has dominated the charts for years and years. Others find themselves thrust into the spotlight unexpectedly, collecting acclaim & recognition because of this unwillingness to compromise. Then there are those that fit the package perfectly, yet for whatever reason, still can’t seem to burst the bubble into the collective consciousness.
