Sxsw Best To Worst

The bands I saw this week that I can recall right now.
1The Dear Hunter
Act I: The Lake South, the River North

They had an amazing set and City Escape was probably one of the coolest songs
I've ever seen a band perform.
2 The Dear Hunter
Act II: The Meaning of, and All Things Regarding Ms. Leading

They played their more chill songs this time on the top of Whole Foods and The
Pimp and the Priest was really cool. This was basically a private show since there
were around 5 people standing and I got to meet Casey this time around.
3Inter Arma
Sky Burial

Really awesome atmospheric vocals and sludgy instrumentals. Never listened to
these guys until I saw them.
4Royal Thunder

Red 7 Patio with Relapse Records
5Inter Arma

Saw them at Mohawk as well. Their sound was a little off and there were a few
technical problems but they were still my favorite band of the day.
From The Bird's Cage

Opened for the dear hunter and was surprised with how good they were. Got their
album for free too.
Full of Hell

These guys played at the Relapse show and were pretty damn entertaining.
8Royal Thunder
Royal Thunder

Saw them at Mohawk after Inter Arma and couldn't seem to stay interested. I liked
them much better the second time around.
9Black Tusk
Set the Dial

These guys were a lot of fun they were just insanely drunk which hurt their
performance quite a bit.
10Soul Khan
Soul Like Khan

This dude is fucking hilarious.
11I the Mighty
Karma Never Sleeps

Played before HRVRD. These guys were also surprisingly good and had lots of energy.
12City and Colour
Little Hell

Dallas played a lot from little hell. I was a little upset he didn't play day old hate.
13Skeleton Coast
Skeleton Coast

After a few technical problems were solved these guys played great as always.
14 The Mowgli's
Love's Not Dead

I didn't really like their music that much but they put on a good show.
15Set it Off

Their music is pretty gay but they had so much energy which actually made it a lot
of fun.
16Ed Tullett
Never Joy

He was a really cool guy and had some good songs but I missed half his set waiting
in line for the bathroom.
17Northern Faces
Southern Places

Really nice guys but their music is not really my cup of tea.
18Call of the Void
Dragged Down A Dead End Path

These guys were a little bit boring when I saw them at the Relapse showcase.
19Tegan and Sara
The Con

I left after 2 songs because I was dead tired and they were playing newer stuff I
had never listened to.
20Kosha Dillz
Beverly Dillz

Eh he was okay but he seems like a cool guy from talking to him.
From Birth to Soil

These guys were pretty damn boring and their music isn't my favorite.
Win Us Over

They sounded good but every time I became interested it swiftly faded.
23Cold War Kids
Robbers and Cowards

God damn they were disappointing. None of their best songs were played and they
seemed so sluggish and bored on stage.
Beyond the Permafrost

Same story as Cold War Kids except they had more energy, however their guitar
and bass tones were very off putting and distracting and their vocals were pretty
disappointing. Not to mention the people around me in the crowd were a bunch of
