Subject: RE: For anyone interested in SXSW Crap! I'll be in Austin the first 2 weeks of March on business, looks like I just miss out! ARGH! On that note, though...

Cool >record stores, guitar shops, etc.? Thanks in advance... > > well, the first thing you should do when you get here is pick up the latest austin chronicle, available at any of the record stores listed below. 33 degrees is post-rock heaven, 43rd and guadalupe (you can't miss the fasci-deco sign) waterloo records has a great selection of pretty much anything you could want, 6th and lamar, 474-2500 sound exchange (for old vinyl), 21st and guadalupe technophilia/vinyl attic (former is all cd, the owners are into a LOT of britpop plus sell lots of used cds, latter is all vinyl, mostly techno), 24th and guadalupe i really wouldn't recommend any guitar shops here, most of them are horridly overpriced, but if you REALLY want to see for yourself, workhorse guitars is somewhere in the 5800 block of burnet rd. one world music is above the continental club on south congress. about the prices...you've been warned. i don't know if black market music is still open. also, while you're here, mothers cafe on 43rd and duval has fantastic vegetarian food, threadgills has a killer steak (and chicken fried chicken), there are a few really great mexican places in east austin. if you wanna be tony, go to fonda san miguel for really good (and really fucking expensive) interior mexican food, and if you plan on spending all your money on records, in between sound exchange and technophilia on the drag is a family-run chinese food stand where you can fill up for $2 (although i really don't want to know exactly what's in the chicken egg rolls, they're good though.) um, for any other suggestions i would ask ppl at either waterloo or 33 degrees (33 is my favorite record store in austin, i say go there first.) austin is going through some growing pains right now thanks to the evolution of 'silicon hills,' whatever that means, but it's still a great town. californians are known for getting stuck here. enjoy! :) hth, joanna oh, and if you're going to be here the first two weeks of march and you're into film, you may be able to catch the beginning of the sxsw film festival. back to cold war criticism --- firstname.lastname@example.org ...a wasted life is bitter spent...

I like Screaming Trees too, but saying Slowdive sucks is just trying to provoke an argument from a group of people who generally like them and their genre of music, which, of course, includes MBV... immature! cory email@example.com ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 23 Feb 1998 11:22:27 -0500 (EST) From: Claire De Leon! Subject: Re: the charlottes Okay, here goes for a review! > •Are You Happy Now ? on Molesworth Records (7") '89 The only release of theirs I haven't heard, but can only imagine it's very similar to the first LP...read on! > •Lovehappy on Subway Organization - SUBORG 12 (LP) Jul'89 Very fast noisy stuff! Girl vocals, as with the rest, but this is hyper fuzzed out indiepop! Almost "punky" but not really. Not shoegazey either. > •Love In The Emptiness on Subway Organization - SUBWAY 27 (12") '90 Ahh....this is where it starts! A nice progression into slower noisepop done in a nice shoegazing style....it's getting better! > •Liar on Cherry Red Records - CHERRY 113 (12") '90 This one is great as well - two of the best cuts from the forthcoming album (Liar) plus a great cover of that Venus song, and an extra good track as well... > •Things Come Apart on Cherry Red Records - BRED 92 (LP) '91 > Now this is the pride of the band's releases!! Each one kept getting better and better and then they stop after this?!?! What's up with that?! This is a must have for any shoegazing fan....bendey whammybar action, soothing girl vocals, noisy-as-fuck guitars.....yummmmm!! I'm working on getting some of the last copies ever of this LP in stock for my mailorder....details will follow in a month or so, if I do get them...

Lots of good music (from Mojave 3 to Elastica to Lush to Radiohead to Suede) but the movie is rather pointless itself. "L.A., it's like, Nowhere" - that sums it up!

The Electric Lounge is a pretty small bar with a tiny stage.
