M.I.A. Invades SXSW!!! DAY ONE!!

So guys, Jagga and myself rocked day one at SXSW. And let me tell you...this shit is ALT.

We saw tons of ALTS on the plane ride down, but as soon as we got in the thick of it all, is was ALT-MANIA!!

If you thought Williamsburg or the LES was ALTcentral, you haven't seen anything until you've been to Austin.

So to sum up day one, we saw these guys:

Hot Club de Paris
Saw them for like 2 seconds, but what we heard was AWESOME!

The Rapture

The Big Sleep

On a side note, M.I.A. is too damn ALT for the TSA! I was rocking my pistol belt buckle and they took it away! They said it looked too real. Wanna know what I think? The security dudes were jealous of my ALTness and are sweatin' my style. You fucks! It's all right though, guys. I'm in the Belt buckle/ALT mecca so I'm sure I'll be able to get a new one!

People Are Listening To M.I.A!

For Vedder Or Worse, Here's Your Lollapalooza 2007 Headliner

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Pearl Jam--one of the few bands not to be featured on our highly speculative Lollapalooza chart--will headline this year's festival in Chicago. That's the first major act to confirm, though our tip line has also indicated that lower-on-the-bill acts Rhymefest and David Vandervelde are also going to be there.

The movement is alive. STAY ALT!!
