SXSW 2014 - Turnstile Music Presents... We Throw Parties, You Throw Knives

March 24, 2014

This showcase takes its name from a rather jaunty little song by Wales-based band Los Campesinos!, with the lineup consisting of several of their label-mates:

  • H. Hawkline
  • Sea Lion
  • Perfume Genius
  • Christopher Owens (ex-Girls frontman)
  • Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals / Neon Neon)
  • Cate Le Bon

The showcase took place in St. David's Historic Sanctuary, which, much like the Central Presbyterian (another church that becomes a music venue during SXSW), has absolutely fantastic acoustics. All the acts were outstanding, but I particularly enjoyed Perfume Genius, who I didn't know much about going into this show, but I'd be willing to wager that the adjective "haunting" gets used a lot to describe his live show.
