Did you survive SXSW 2016? I watched from the social media sidelines this year, and 2016 seemed relatively tame. (Maybe because I wasn’t schlepping it around in the rain like last year.)
I’ll be sharing around round of Secondhand SXSW later this week, but today let’s get a jump start on the music with one of my favorite new bands I discovered when I started combing through the lists of performers: L.A. Witch.
I have to admit: sometimes a band’s name catches my attention and sucks me in. Given my Halloween junkie status…L.A. Witch did just that. They also made me think of one of my favorite writers, Francesca Lia Block, and how she would totally write a book about a band with this name. (Perhaps as an opener for Cherokee Bat and the Goat Guys?)
They were featured in my SXSW-themed 3 Bands email (are you on the list?) that went out at the start of March with four other bands I recommended catching at the festival, and I loved their music so much I wanted to share it again with you guys today.
