From The Vault: Woodhands | “I Wasn’t Made For Fighting”

One of our main obsessions in the world of electro-dance madness is wrapped up in the devilish duo known as Woodhands.  We found out about them back in ’08 and were stoked to see them live for the first time at SXSW in ’09. These two dudes are the epedemy of nerdy-genius musicians, and it shows in their live performance and three awesome albums.  We had the chance to sit down and talk smack with Dan and Paul last year, where we shared ridiculous and awkward stories including Merch dancing so hard at their first show she puked afterwards (no liquid courage involved).

BC: They were definitely one of the most fun bands we’ve interviewed, not to mention how insane their live performances are.

Merch: Our chat with them went on way too awkwardly long, and I loved it.  I also enjoyed Paul playing drums in his socks.

BC: It was strange that they were on tour with Lotus. Watching all of those stoned hippies try to figure out their music was classic. They got them all dancing, though, so mission accomplished.

Merch: I think what I love about their music is that it’s so energy infused that you can’t help but lose control.

BC: Exactly, it’s like Electric Six meets Young Love. Mmmm electro-goodness.

So here’s to our boys of Woodhands, and the first track that got us hooked:

And here’s another one of our favs:

[Review] Electric 6 @ Emo’s – Austin, TX

Electric 6 have apparently played Emo’s twelve times, and I’ve seen them there 7, and all in just over 3 years. To say that Electric 6 is a touring machine is a huge understatement. But relentless touring allows them to perfect their live set (which they undoubtedly have), adopt a large following, and be supported by a slew of awesome acts (i.e. The Willowz, Bang Camaro, Local H).

Electric 6, fronted by the ridiculous Dick Valentine, bring in the type of audience you would expect in a dive bar. Everyone is three sheets to the wind and ready to rumble (There have been at least a few scuffles every time I’ve seen E6), but they friggin’ love this band.

This time around, hot off the release of Zodiac, the guys brought forth the rock with grungy guitar riffs and a great cover of The Spinners‘ “Rubberband Man.”

“You Say Party, We Say” Mixtape!

Our music program is named The Party Line for a reason…we like to party and we like music worth partying to.  This mixtape is dedicated to some of the greatest songs that include the word ‘party‘ in the track title, talk about partying, describe the crazy things that take place at a party, and most definitely make you want to party.  Some are old and some are new, but believe us, you will want to have this mixtape for your next party.

We’ve got heavy hitters like Justice and Notorious B.I.G., and some of our favs like The Cool Kids and Electric Six, plus two tracks from the King of Partys himself, Andrew W.K.!
