FINALLY, the Thunderheist debut album is dropping 3/31/09. (Psst… it’s already available for purchase on iTunes.) They’ve been dancing around the underground for almost 2 years now so it’s great to see them here @ SXSW this year & finally coming out with their long awaited album. They are playing March 19-21 around Austin this week. Here’s all of their SXSW showcases:
Thurs 3/19 - IHeartComix showcase 12:15 set time @ Beauty Bar (inside stage) - 317 E. 7th Street Free with wristband / badge
Fri 3/20 - Biz 3 Showcase 11:30 PM set time @ Club de Ville - 900 Red River Free with wristband / badge
Sat 3/21 - Exclaim.ca presents M for Montreal vs T for Toronto 1:30 PM set time @ El Sol y La Luna (Canada House, former Emo’s IV lounge) - 600 East 6th Street, corner of Red River Free
Listen online to a badass cover of ZZ Top’s “Just Got Paid”. The rest of the cover’s on the album are hit or miss…. mostly miss. Of course, the Disturbed cover of Faith No More’s “Midlife Crisis” isstill pretty awesome & always worth a listen. The rest is pretty much crap.
Psst… Metal Bastard will have the Mastodon cover up on his site for a week for download so move it or lose it.
