SEATTLE METROPOLITAN MAGAZINE ASKS WHICH LOCAL ACTS MADE AN IMPRESSION ON NON-SEATTLE JOURNALISTS AT SXSW

Seattle Metropolitan Magazine

With about 37 Seattle acts having played at SXSW last week, Laura Dannen of Seattle Metropolitan Magazine wanted to find out which acts got coverage from national publications. Christopher Weingarten of Rolling Stone tweeted about Shabazz Palaces, saying “Ex-Digable Planet does impossibly funky, dubby avant-rap with shakers, kalimbas, ideas without boundaries. Truly a unique and wonderful mix that deserves to be one of SXSW 2010’s breakout stars. Get Googling!” The Dutchess and the Duke and The Moondoggies sat for short interviews with AOL Music blog Spinner.com. Paste magazine announced that Visqueen played the “Best Single-Song Performance by a Band I Really Wanted to See a Whole Set by But Missed It” for the song “Fight For Love,” saying, “It was tight and fierce and totally generous in the way most Visqueen songs are.” The New York Times ArtsBeat culture blog four-word review called Ben Gibbard’s solo set “Alone, narrative bleakness underscored.” To read more on Seattle bands at SXSW, follow the above link.
