Bull Moose & Covert Curiosity


Covert Curiosity has joined forces with Bull Moose to put on one hell of a day party at SXSW. It's all going down at Aces Lounge (6th & San Jacinto) on Thursday, March 19th. We're going to be rocking it for six straight hours, from noon-6pm, and we'll have free beer while it lasts. It's free for 21+ with an RSVP on Do512, but those under the age of 21 will have to pay a $10 cover.

Bull Moose is an Austin print media & web design company who create intuitive web sites, among other things. They are going to be making things look a whole lot better around here, very soon. We put our collective heads together to book some of our favorite bands for this party, and then managed to land a great venue, Aces Lounge. We think it equates to a bucketful of awesome.
Here's the bill:
The incredible, experimental Los Angeles noise rock band HEALTH headlines. Then there's the infectious garage-pop quartet Hacienda and psychedelic garage rockers The Strange Boys. Before that, catch the female-fronted power trio Ume and the wild six-piece garage-rock/art-punk band Golden Triangle, one of my favorite live bands of 2008.

Starting the show will be the Kinks-esque garage rockers Shapes Have Fangs, who are co-headlining Psych Fest 2, backing Sky Saxon of the 60s garage rock band The Seeds. And all the way from São Paulo, Brazil, Garotas Suecas kick it off with a highly danceable mix of garage and psychedelic sounds with crazy organ riffs.

Once again, it's happening on Thursday, March 19th at Aces Lounge from 12-6pm. Point your browser to Do512 for more information. Big thanks goes to Bull Moose for working with me on this party.
