Tuesday’s Free SXSW Party Rec: Art Disaster.

Going to keep today’s SXSW party recommendation short and sweet.   Judging by the looks of things, this girl’s got a head of hair to wash.  And we’ll just not discuss the unshaven legs situation … I’m about to take a machete with me into the shower.

Why Art Disaster?   It’s a biannual Austin party, so SXSW out-of-towners, this is where the “townies” will be.  Also, Peelander-Z, a Japanese punk band clad in superhero costumes, will be opening the outside stage.  Friends, have you ever seen a Peelander-Z show?   Dare I say it’s a bucket list experience. 

I’m being serious. You absolutely need to see this band live at least once in your life. The very first time I saw them, like six years ago at Beerland, they set up huge bowling pins on the stage, and mid-song, removed their drummer from his seat, picked him up and BOWLED HIM into the pins.

Which may be why a key component of their costume is a helmet.
