    Seismic Dance Event w/ Anna, Bedouin, Bonobo (DJ set), Carl Craig, Cloonee, Ida Engberg, Illyus & Barrientos, Jonas Rathsman, Kyle Watson, Rebūke, Regard, Rinzen, Satori, Solardo, Volac, Yotto

    It’s the fourth annual Seismic Dance Event and, for the Austin dance community, it’s a coup. Saturday, techno fans stick to the Volcano stage for essential eruptions from Detroit icon (seriously) Carl Craig, Sweden’s Ida Engberg, and Brazil’s Anna. Stage Tsunami becomes the bass house home for the day (think garage and funky house love child), with the Frequency lineup featuring darker, brooding sets to culminate in Brooklyn-based duo Bedouin’s Middle Eastern inspired sounds and a DJ set from Bonobo. Sunday’s Tsunami stage is arguably the best of the fest. Detroit’s Seth Troxler hails to a live set from Booka Shade, capped with a two-hour appearance from South Africa’s Black Coffee. Stage Volcano gives more trance, wrapping with a live set from Berlin’s business techno duo Pan-Pot and then anyone’s guess (Ghetto? Trance? Hardcore?) from unpredictable Russian jockey/producer Nina Kraviz.

    A dozen artists and over 20 vendors assemble at the headquarters of culture-twisting screenprinting extraordinaires Fine Southern Gentlemen, also behind Feels So Good Records.

Sailor Poon, and Big Bill promise winking punk excellence, not to mention the psych-sided sounds of Sheverb, Crypt Trip, White Dog, and more.

    Afterglow Sessions w/ Tiarra Girls, Dan Petra, Kendra Sells, Madison Baker [inside]

    Latin grooves, singer-songwriter acoustics, soul meditations, and electronic pop beats all take shelter from the cold in the warmth of Mohawk’s inside stage. Tiffany, Tori, and Sophia Baltierra weld reggae grooves and girl group harmonies into bilingual feminist anthems as the Tiarra Girls, while Dan Petra offers quiet introspection with their guitar. As a solo artist, Blumoon singer Kendra Sells ups the ante on her band’s neo-soul sound with experimentations in drum loops, synthesizers, and fuzz guitar. Madison Baker, meanwhile, relishes in the slow, beat-heavy atmospherics of modern pop. A lineup as eclectic as the music magazine organizing it.
