SXSW is a breeding ground of making new friends - especially with musicians who play the Beautiful Buzzz showcase. This year in particular I met so many amazing people and made some pretty great and beautiful and talented and amazing and fun friends - and how lucky am I that a group of them live in my city. Indie pop bay area boys Finish Ticket stepped onto my stage and tore shit up, to the point where I asked them to come back to fill another open slot. I mean, who doesn't like a band with a set of adorable twin brothers? They hung out every day and drank my beer....I couldn't get them to leave really, and what a blast we had......awe yea SXSW!
Finish Ticket have released a new video for single "Lying Through Your Teeth" from the debut fill length album Tears You Apart, released a few weeks ago - which you can pick up on iTunes HERE! Inspired by the likes of The Killers, Manchester Orchestra, and The Strokes, they formed in 2008 based on a shared ambition for originality and honesty in their music. They’ve been fortunate enough to have shared the stage with bands like Black Keys, Phoenix, Broken Bells, Young The Giant and many more of their favorites. I see amazing things in the future for Finish Ticket....watch the video, love it, buy the album, love it, love it!!
