Hey people. It's been Land of Talk central here at the blog lately. I'll bring it up one last time now: Read the story and my interview with the band's Lizzie Powell. Then go see them tonight at Slowdown.
Also this weekend at Slowdown is Little Brazil. Tomorrow night, the boys are back onstage again after a sort of (but not really) hiatus while Landon Hedges lived in California. He's back, so I assume you'll see a lot more of the band. I'm also hoping to hear a few new tunes when they play, as I'm told Hedges has been writing his brains out lately. Friday at 9 p.m. with the So-So Sailors and Honey & Darling. $6 at the door.
On Saturday, I'd go check out David Dondero. If you wonder where Conor Oberst gets it, you've found him. The singing, the cadence, the lyricism... it's all there. With Darren Hanlon at 9 p.m. Saturday at the Waiting Room. $8 in advance or $10 day of.

This really has nothing to do with weekend shows, but if you're going to South By Southwest in March (yes, that's 6 months from now), your best (and cheapest) bet to buy a badge lasts through Friday. Head to their website to check it out.
