I wanted to throw up these pictures real quick so you could all see, in part, how fucking awesome the show was yesterday. Located a little bit outside of the downtown Austin shit show, MICRO-PIXEL-RITES was a chill space with positive vibes, grass, beer, amazing hand-made seitan bbq sandwiches and hand cut fries. But you want to hear about the bands!

They were all shiny. Each band played like they were into you as much as you were into them. Must have been, again, the vibezzzz. From Big Troubles’ reverbed roar to the super energized performance of the highly buzzed Cloud Nothings, from the psychedelic haze of Rangers’ second performance ever to Family Portrait’s ability to make you feel in the future and the past at the same time, to Twin Sister, oh my god Twin Sister, save your heart now, to the always true Alex Bleeker and the Freaks to the female riot power of Coasting, to Pill Wonder, what a wonder with 2 drum kits and finally, Campfires, Jeff Walls’ Chicago bedroom project that is now a loud onslaught of pop. WOAH.

Real Estate played a secret show on Saturday night, headlining a bill with other Underwater Peoples bands Family Portrait and Alex Bleeker and the Freaks. This was a fundraiser/pre SXSW pump up show hosted by none other than MICRO-PIXEL-RITES!

We kicked a keg, had a visit from the Cops and generally wrecked havoc on the Pixelhorse headquarters. All the bands sounded great, they were totally at the top of their game. Family Portrait is on the road now, check them out, or see them in Austin! Real Estate play a sold out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Woods on Friday.

Rez Flicks was at the party and he has some great shots, including candid party photos. Our own photog, Rhiannon Marino took a bunch of shots too and they will be up soon. Stay tuned…
