I told her I didn’t care if that Glock didn’t have a clip in it I’m pretty sure thumping on someone’s door waving a pistol around while demanding money is still a felony, and I wanted the evidence the hell out of the house; it’s 5am and I’m exhausted!… wait let me back up. I told her that I was not remotely OK with her going up to bands that played our show and asking them if they’d play in her man’s sex chalet for them and some friends @ 3:30 am… still I should go back a touch further. I said I’d doubt they’d be into it, seeing as they just did an hour set, but if she could convince the Slang Chickens to stay and play acoustic as the bar was closing down than to go for it; maybe she wasn’t as crazy as she appeared.

2011 was Pinpoint Music’s first year having a party at SXSW 2011. For those uninitiated on SXSW just know the parties their stick close to the old adage, “Everything’s bigger in Texas”. 8 amazing bands, 250lbs of Louie Mulluer BBQ, and ridiculous amount of booze (did someone really order a 10 person round of 1942 Don Julio shots, why wasn’t I involved).

I asked Slang Chickens to play this show all the way back 5 months earlier and they didn’t hesitate to say yes. Even when I asked them to play the 1am spot, something not everyone was real excited about, they were into it. That anytime anywhere attitude is a large part of the Slang Chickens allure, because their music is drenched in that bravado. They seem to exist to play their music, their way, and either you’re into it our your not.

Performing “Never Been High”, a song off their My Floor EP released in 2011, and a cover of New Order’s “Age of Consent”… we present the Slang Chickens.
