Last Friday, as a part of the Antigel festival, a group of track cyclists raced around the banked corners of Geneva’s velodrome while two electro bands played, Modeselektor (above) and Zombie Zombie. It reminds of something you’d see at a Six Day race. Thanks for sharing, Fred.

“Affinity Cycles and Raekwon from the Wu Tang Clan have come together to design 3 custom bikes to be auctioned off to aid those hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy. In typical Wu Tang black and yellow, these bikes feature some of New York Cities hardest hit areas, Staten Island, Rockaway, Red Hook and Coney Island.”
Check out more information below, including how you can purchase one of these bikes!
This is not your grandfathers country music and yet it is. I’ve been a fan of King Dude for some time now. In fact, I was at TJ’s first solo show on the east coast and have enjoyed watching him go from diving head-first into Neofolk to slowly morphing into a giant slice of Americana. When King Dude first started, it was a solo act. Shows were dimly-lit as TJ sat on a chair strumming his guitar. In recent months, King Dude has become a band, complete with a new sound and energy. The guys stayed at my house during Chaos in Tejas and I caught their show at the Parish. It was an entirely different experience.
If you dig this, head over to the King Dude Bandcamp and check out more.
Event Recap: King Dude at the Parish
Seriously. I’m burnt out and I didn’t even go to many shows. Today was unofficially the “last” day of SxSW. The hordes of people will start heading back to their home town tomorrow and slowly but surely, the decompression and reconstruction of Austin will take place. Yesterday, I met Erik and Sofia from Sweden. In the next few days, they’re leaving on a 10-month cycle tour of the western United States called The Great Escape. I’m letting them crash with me for a few days before they begin their Raidô.
Last night was a wreck, which lead to a great ride and finally, I was ready for music. So this afternoon, I went by Barcelona to see the only DJ group / crew / bass record label I give a shit about anymore, Trouble and Bass. I’ve known these guys for years, since before this blog was even in existence. Seeing them grow and prosper over the years has been very inspiring. I made it in time for Drop the Lime and Death Face‘s sets. As the crowd became even more intoxicated by the deadly bass, the mood darkened and it was still daylight out!

Be there Austin and get outta the SxSW downtown shitshow.
