Patrick Sweany Means Good Music.

This week is SXSW in Austin and usually I try to avoid it at all costs because it means there will be lots of strangers in my city walking in the middle of the street, clogging up all my favorite restaurants, and taking all the best parking spots downtown, which turns me into a grouch extraordinaire. However, there are also lots of stellar free shows during SXSW and my love of music frequently overrides my grumpiness about everything else. It was because of that love of music that I went to see Patrick Sweany play yesterday with Captain Thoughtful. Cute story, Captain Thoughtful and I met at a Patrick Sweany concert. (Cue the “awwwws”)

You may not have heard of Patrick Sweany and that’s a crying ass shame because Patrick Sweany means good music. Really good music. Pure rock n roll with a strong blues and soul influence. It’s the kind of music that I will love 80 years from now when I live on the moon and drive a flying car. His show was well worth driving downtown in the middle of SXSW for. Have a listen.

He also plays a mint green guitar so, it’s kind of impossible not to like him. http://patricksweany.com/

Happy weekend folks! Remember to wear green tomorrow or leprechauns will steal your babies. (That’s the legend, right?)

  1. SXSW? I thought of something dirty, too…that’s what you get when you put the letters ‘S’ & ‘X’ so close together. I bet that’s what they were going for when they came up with that name…trick people’s brains into thinking about sex and they will come!! Also…I am forever protected from the leprechauns thanks to the green tattoo on my wrist. It’s very visible so that anyone who tries to pinch me (or steal my children) will get a startlingly clear view of it before I knock the hell out of them.

  2. Funny thing is I read all the way to where you say “You may not have heard of Patrick….. ” before I realized you weren’t talking about Patrick Swayze. Thought it was some kind of tribute or such
    I’ll have to check Patrick Sweany out.

  3. Who the hell came up with the acronym “SXSW”??? I never remember what that is supposed to mean. It doesn’t spell anything and i sprain my tongue when I try to make it a word. I look at it and I think “sex sweat”. It’s not a porn convention is it?????

      1. A few years ago, it look me a while to figure that one out, too! It does sound a little shady… 😉

        Unfortunately I can’t listen to these clips at the moment, but I’m sure they’re fab!

  4. I am not there.
    (Hold the tear Marina Hold the tears)
    However, I have been keeping up with bands performing there.
    I discovered Foxy Shazam, The Pierces, and Dead Sara, and Electric Touch so far.
    I have list of a few more that I haven’t checked out there.

  5. I like it 🙂 Love to get introduced to new music, especially when it’s really good!
    Also, for the record – Awwww, you guys met at a Patrick Sweeney concert, and now go back to them on dates!
