Most of us are still recovering from yesterday's epic "First Contact" party -- the Phoenix's first-ever Austin day show -- but here's some highlights, with much more to come:
Fuck yeah -- Allston punk trio YOUNG ADULTS, who launched their debut video just last week and anchored our Class of 2011 feature back in January, have been added to our Austin party next Wednesday, March 16.
First Contact, presented by the Phoenix, WFNX, Great Scott and Pirate Promotion, now features: DOM, HOORAY FOR EARTH, EUGENE MIRMAN, GIRLFRIENDS, YOUNG ADULTS, THE GOOD NATURED, THE SEEDY SEEDS and FUNERAL PARTY
Saturday's Young Adults' 12-inch release party at Great Scott felt like one of two things, maybe even both: a changing of the guard in the Boston scene, or just a really cool garage rock show where everyone got shithammered and reveled in the notion that all four bands on the bill could have headlined. Doesn't matter, anyway.
