Built to Spill Epic two night show in Austin, complete with badass Poster
The first night of Built to Spill's rollicking indie stomp through Austin is behind us. It was a fantastic display of Martsch and company's ability to rock like the day the released "There's Nothing Wrong with Love" almost 2 decades ago. The 2 hour set was packed with old and new favorites including Carry the Zero off "Keep it Like a Secret", which this 3-time BTS audience member has never heard performed live. It was as just as bittersweet as the day I heard it in 1999.
Their set lasted well into 1am and included a two song solo set off Martsch independent release "Now you Know". Rounding out the evening was a 3 song encore utilizing the seemingly endless sonic guitar frenzy that is Conventional Wisdom to say farewell on night one. And to top it off our shop designed and silkscreened a limited edition print to commemorate this two-night Emo's event. There was 109 printed, so grab one while they last. Each print is signed and numbered by the designer. Come for the music, leave with a badass limited edition print.
