SXSW: Long lines and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart

The darlings of SXSW past are many and one of the more recent gems is Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

I shouldn't have been too surprised to have to wait in line when I got to Beauty Bar, but I was still pretty surprised. It was one-in, one-out and I honestly
Missed most of the band's set.

But I finally made it. The fivesome was blasting through it's shoegazey rock, which owes a lot to '80s stuff like Depeche Mode.

It was great, and the sound was a little clearer than the last time I saw the band, which was at Slowdown a couple years ago.

Of the four or five songs that I caught, only one was from the band's new album.

Anyway, I caught some video of "Young Adult Friction." Check it out.
