Future of the Left Interview – SXSW 2012, etc.

SXSW 2012 was – by all accounts – the closest thing to a Bacchanalia that Pinpoint (as a whole) has ever experienced. So much beer. So very much pork. Hot tubs and wet heat and rock and confusion and somehow, in the middle of all that, we managed to snag...

Exclusive Video: Hi Ho Silver Oh – “Communion” at SXSW 2012

Our second video recording of Hi Ho Silver Oh in the backyard of our eerily soothing backyard accommodations in Austin, TX at SXSW 2012. Hi Ho Silver Oh has an inspiring calm you don’t often find in bands or artists vying for attention and acclaim – and the moments captured...

Exclusive Video: Hi Ho Silver Oh – Perjury

By the end of day 3 of SXSW you’re mentally, physically and spiritually exhausted. You’ve literally seen hundreds of bands and everything starts to sound the same. The chemicals in your brain start to ache for music that is unique and memorable, while your body is pleading with you for...

SXSW 2012 – Day 4

Rather than talk about the music of the last day of SXSW I wanted to take a chance and try to articulate what the final day is like. 2012 marks the 3rd consecutive year that Pinpoint has covered SXSW, and Day 4 (the last day) of SXSW is always one...

SXSW 2012 – Day 3

We seem to be starting our days later and later here in Austin. Each day and night brings less sleep, erratic eating habits, and weird random people bed-hopping till well, around 2pm local time. It’s food time. I have less to say, mainly because I feel like everyday is three...

SXSW 2012 – Day 2

Are you kidding me, was this only Day 2? I’ve gotten used to being hungover, I’ve gotten use to my feet and back hurting, I’ve even gotten used to my roommate snoring like a damn Buggs Bunny cartoon character; but now I have aching glands I didn’t even know existed...

SXSW 2012 – Day 1

It was muggy as hell on the first official of day of the SXSW 2012 Music Festival and our arm pits, camera lenses and upper lips can attest to that. Some of us drank a little too much, some of us saw a little too much tranny-butthole and I saw...
