The fifth iteration of the Chronicle’s annual SXSW day party, Hair of the 3-Legged Dog, returns this year at a new location, East Austin’s beloved and raucous Hotel Vegas. Join our crew and our friends from Austin Pets Alive! on Fri., March 16, 1-5pm, for an excellent array of SXSW hangover cures: tacos, Bloody Marys, and live local music.
The Deer (1:20-2pm): “Earthy and indie, transcendental folk fronted by Grace Rowland.”
Drakulas (2:20-3pm): “Fronted by Mike Wiebe from Riverboat Gamblers on vocals and Zach Blair from Rise Against/Gwar/Hagfish on guitar, the band wears turtlenecks and medallions. The idea is that they’re like a geeky gang from The Warriors. It’s only rock & roll, but the lyrics are kinda set in a grimy, late-Seventies, early-Eighties metropolis à la NYC in Taxi Driver.”
Blackillac (3:20-4pm): “A new supergroup of sorts from Austin-raised rappers Phranchyze and Zeale, whose forthcoming debut features beats and production by Gary Clark Jr.”
Yonatan Gat (4:20-5pm): “Guitarist for Israeli wild men Monotonix, Yonatan Gat now leads a trio that plays spazzy, jazzy, surfy, aggressive world music. They set up on the floor, never the stage.”
