We’ve got some big news to share this fine March evening, namely the fact that we are 7 days away from our first official SXSW performance in Austin. We were accepted as an officially showcasing band a few weeks ago and we’re pretty pumped. It’s been a childhood dream to play SXSW for both of us and the fact that we had to wait til we were in our 30’s makes it that much sweeter. We’ll be playing on the main strip at 9:00 on Wednesday 3/14. If you’re in Austin, come out!
Yesterday we were thrown into the ring for local New York music magazine The Deli’s Artist Of The Month contest. At stake is some nice recording gear and studio time, so please take a minute and cast a vote for us. You can only vote once per IP address, but that means you can do one at work, one at home, and one from your mobile if you feel like being a Lightouts superfan.
Finally, our latest single, “The Cure For Shyness,” has been doing really well. The Dadada said, “Lightouts put the guitar back into indie rock,” Indie Rock Cafe included it in their Best New Music of the week, Brand Racket gave us one of the more flattering write-ups we’ve received so far, and dozens of other great sites have covered it.
Wish us luck in Austin, and thanks for your support!
