Spin Doctors

Spin reps Austin.

Big up to Austin's Zykos, whose "sprawling indie rock from the Lone Star State" won them Spin.com's "Band of the Day" today. Elsewhere on the site, someone wrote up Explosions in the Sky's big sold-out psych-fest at Emo's last night; apparently our Friday Night Lights heroes have "one of the most accurate band names in music today." There are new Spoon tour dates on there, too, but nothing in Texas. Considering Metal Dave Glessner's write-up in this month's paper mag, it's easy to see why people from out of town think it's always South by Southwest around here. It kind of is.
