It’s that time again folks: SXSW, the annual excuse for attendees to know exactly where they’ll be on St. Patrick’s Day each year, or to be conflicted about how they’re going to hit the next day party and watch the first rounds of March Madness at the same time. Jibbies & Loond don’t brook these distractions lightly. Their mission is clear and their aim is true; metal immersion. If you are of similar purpose and think you have the stamina to keep up, this episode lays out everywhere you need to be to catch all the top-shelf metal you can while staggering around Austin wondering why you keep forgetting to eat and if your feet really will ever be the same again, again.
Our duo also reflect upon the Randy Blythe not-guilty verdict, look in on what Howard Jones has been up to, revel in the continued ascent of ATX’s own Scorpion Child, and try to keep up with the dueling Queensryches.
