SXSW Music Review: Army
No stage necessary. Beerland’s rowdy patio shows remain a renegade highlight of South by Southwest. Heavy heroes like Fucked Up, Oh Sees, and Trash Talk are all veterans of the gig, in which bands play the club’s front porch to an audience collected on the surrounding sidewalk, alley, and street.
