They played a ton of old stuff, and it was semi acoustic, so as not to blow the building apart ( I cant picture them lugging all thier amps down in the crowded basement), which was neat. Still a lot of crazy loud pedal usage though.
I heard they beat out Fucked Up for the capacity record, which is saying something. Oh also, for all those on the fence about going to SXSW this year, you should know that Fucked Up And Dinosaur Jr. are playing a showcase together. Rock on, oh yeah.
Photos! Also some photos of the Sonic Boom crew, before hand.
What a good ploy on the parents part.
