ShockHound's SXSW Report: Day Four

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Down the street from Stubb's, a familiar voice from Emo’s Annex pierced the night air. It was Hot Leg, the new band by Justin Hawkins of the Darkness. Hot Leg play the same kind of campy cock rock he played with his last band, and are as paradoxically unironic the lyrics might be funny, but the music is completely serious; as Hawkins and bass player Sam Stokes told ShockHound after the set, it’s the kind of “music people want to hear.” The delirious, pogoing, fist-pumping crowd, which at one point carried a soloing Hawkins on its shoulders, was evidence enough.

K!'s SXSW blog (Part Two)

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

K! editor Paul Brannigan reports from this year's South By South West festival.

Thursday, March 19

Day two of SXSW is set aside for a Kerrang!/Guitar Hero party at The Wave on Sixth Street. Over the course of the afternoon Gallows, Justin Hawkins from Hot Leg and Lips and Rob from Anvil will all pop in to check out the five band bill. That and there's free beer for everyone probably helps pack the venue too...

SXSW Friday: Hot Sun, Hot Leg

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

We hit the Village Voice day party to catch a little bit of the moody/pleasant rock of Meese along with some sweet fajitas, and we were only at the Next Big Nashville day party long enough to catch some tuning up in between acts, but that's because we managed to finagle some Spin Magazine invite-only laminates, and we wanted to catch Boston's Passion Pit, Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins' new outfit Hot Leg and maybe a little of Echo and the Bunnymen. So it was off to Stubb's to clamor along with other badge-holders for a glimpse of what's typically though of as a must-attend party. But we're in a recession folks.

Former Darkness man gets the leather out for Austin show

Justin Hawkins got up close and personal with his crowd tonight (March 21) at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, playing with his new band Hot Leg.

The frontman, formerly of The Darkness, got a fan to hoist him onto his shoulders towards the end of the band’s 11pm (CST) show at Emo's Annex, with the fan making a circular walk around the venue while Hawkins played guitar.
