I knew that I said we’d wait until tonight to release the Boston to Austin lineup, but I’m impatient and excited, so HERE WE GO. I didn’t think it was possible to top last year’s lineup, which included Bodega Girls, Mystery Roar, Kingsley Flood, Viva Viva, Mean Creek, Dirty Dishes, Banditas, Static of the Gods and Endless Wave. We somehow squeezed ALL 9 BANDS onto a rooftop in Austin for an unforgettable afternoon, the party received some national accolades and when it was all over we took a look at our buddies at Converse and said multiple times that we had to do this again.
We’re not sticking to the roof this year. We have two stages. We have DJs. And we’re still the Boston Music Day Party in Austin on St. Patrick’s Day, so if you’ll be down there I think we can both agree I’ve made your plans for you.
Without further ado, the Boston to Austin Bands of 2012:
We’re thrilled to kick the whole shebang off tonight at Great Scott, and HEY -- THERE ARE STILL A FEW TICKETS AT THE CONVERSE STORE AT 348 NEWBURY. Not a whole lot, so go fast if you want to get in tonight for free.
Will all of the bands be playing tonight?
[Mwahahahaha--Ed.] I’d tell you, but then it takes the fun out of the super secret announcement-at-the-venue ploy I’ve planned. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed as the first band goes on at 9 and we’ll be there until Carl has to trick me into leaving Great Scott by promising me a Quarter Pounder with Cheese from across the street and then shutting the door behind me.
