If the old adage is true that "opportunity knocks", than it's incumbent on one to, well ...open the door. And this week we'll open up TVD to some of the new faces who have sent demos and promos and Mp3s to TVD HQ -- all to coincide with the SXSW Music Festival being held in Austin, Texas this week.
(A note to the non-DC residents about this week's "SX(NW)" moniker. DC is divided into four sections: NW, NE, SW, and SE. I live in NW, so ---> SXSW + NW = SX(NW). Made that one up, we did.)
First up this week is the Dublin-based 4-piece Delorentos who, in a unique twist here at TVD, will be offering their own SXSW Tour Diary as they wind their way through the States, culminating with their live dates in Austin at SXSW. Delorentos have opened for The Futureheads, Gang of Four, and Tapes n Tapes among their blistering performances at both the Oxegen and Electric Picnic Festivals. From their bio, " ... obvious reference points are Pixies, The Cure, The Clash and Arcade Fire; more oblique influences slide in from most genres of music and virtually every decade from the 50s onwards."
