SXSW 2010: Andrew WK bails on J Mascis and Thurston Moore. Plus, J Mascis solo [video]

So . . . bad news first. Remember that THURSTON MOORE - J MASCIS - ANDREW WK supergroup we told you about? Well, um . . . it didn't happen. Or, well, it kind of happened. But Andrew WK didn't show up. He didn't bother to cancel, either. He, like, just didn't show up. As in, the rest of DEMOLISHED THOUGHTS were hanging out on stage, waiting. No AWK. Word evidently came that AWK had gone to some party across town and wouldn't be making it. So they pulled one of the dudes from Fucked Up out of the crowd to replace him and did it anyway. Someone recorded the entire second set and posted it on YouTube. Somebody bootleg this and sell it to us for $26 on 180-gram vinyl please. (First line, best line: "This is our first single, it's called 'Snob'")

The good news is that J. MASCIS also played a solo gig at the behest of FUCKED UP, whom we will extoll in a later post, possibly in group haiku. Here's J doing his thing: 

Oh, by the way: Thurston hates the kids.
