Radio K at SXSW 2013 update: BNLX, pt. 4

Posted on 3/15/2013
Greetings from sunny Austin, TX!
Thursday 3/15 was a fun filled day at SXSW.  We spent the afternoon attending cool day parties, met up with great friends and watched many rad new bands including Cheatahs, Savages, Toy and Palma Violets.  BNLX then headed over to the East Side lounge to play The Mother of All SXSW Showcases with our pals Wiping Out Thousands. We had a blast!  Thanks to Actual Wolf for the cool shot from the show.  After that, we found out about a crazy illegal gig on the pedestrian bridge at 3am by super awesome bands Parquet Courts and Merchandise.  There were hundreds of kids gathered for this ad-hock event.  Ahhhh, we **heart** SXSW!  TODAY, BNLX is super excited to play the MN Nice show @ The Liberty, sponsored by McNally Smith College, 89.3 the Current and  We hit the stage at 4:30!   Whooop!

BNLX had a great day at SXSW today:  we ran into tons of new and old friends, we ate great bites from the local food trucks, Wiggy helped us put up flyers around town, we participated in social media, we saw other cool bands and we enjoyed the 75 degree weather.  BNLX plays the East Avenue Lounge Thursday at 10:45!

BNLX decided to take the long route to SXSW this year.  We made a quick stop in Nashville and Memphis to visit some good friends and stop by a few recording studios.  

Ed with his pal Jody Stephens, who was the drummer for legendary power pop pioneers Big Star and Minneapolis-based super group Golden Smog, hanging out at Ardent Studios.  Ardent is one of the great American rock and roll studios located in Memphis, who has hosted everyone from Big Star, Led Zeppelin and R.E.M. to the Replacements, Raconteurs and The White Stripes. 
BNLX visited Sun Studio in Memphis, the literal birth place of rock and roll recording, where the earliest hits by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and many others were recorded.  Here's a shot of Ashley Ackerson singing into the actual Shure model 55 microphone used by Elvis in 1956!
Wiggy Ackerson, tour manager for BNLX, gives Big Star's Jody Stephens a BNLX LP.
