SXSW: Thursday Haiku-Reviews

Georgie James
Stripped-down duo show
Better sound than on Conan
Doing D.C. proud

Le Loup
Banjo! And French horn!
Tambourines, lots of guitars
Arty but catchy

Mika Miko
All-girl punk mayhem
Telephone as microphone
Makes you jump around

Jay Reatard
Flying Vs, big hair
As punk rock as punk rock gets
So great I went twice

Times New Viking
Guitar, keys and drums
Seductive pop songs with noise
Lots and lots of noise

Better than you'd think
Wholesome pop from wholesome kids
No "Mmmbop"? Bummer

Man Man
Too crowded to see
So I left after 15
Sounded like Beefheart

Dark Meat
As many members
As lines in this dumb haiku

Jens Lekman
The perfect ending
To an already great day
Makes me feel tingly

Love the haikus, I'm listening to Le Loup right now based on your haiku review. Jens Lekman makes me tingly, too.
