The Lucky Thirteen: 3/7/10 - 3/13/10

You might have heard about a little music festival up in Denton called NX35. This is the festival's second year, and I must say that the lineup is quite impressive. The thirteen artists featured in the playlist are all playing at some point during the 4 day festival. For more details, including how to buy wristbands, all the artists playing, all the venues, etc. etc. etc., then go to NX35 for all the details. The playlist only represent some of my favorite artists playing, and even at that, there are a LOT who didn't make the list who are still worth checking out.

Standard disclaimer: any artists, record labels, etc. who do not wish to be on the playlist for any reason whatsoever, email me at and I will gladly remove the track. And if you'd actually like to be on the playlist, you can use the same email addy to email me mp3's, and if I like the song then odds are it'll wind up on a playlist.

  1. "Romance Tried to Kill Me", Cocky Americans
    Performing Thursday night at J&J's Pizza, and in an unrelated note, the band headlines a benefit show tonight at Double-Wide for the employees affected by the lower Greenville fires

  2. "The Vultures Are Circling", Jack With One Eye
    Performing Saturday night at Hailey's

  3. "Letters to a Young Danny Kennedy", RTB2
    Performing Thursday at Dan's Silverleaf, as part of the KXT showcase

  4. "Everything Dies", Nicholas Altobelli
    Performing Friday night at Jupiter House

  5. "Tired of Dallas", Orange Peel Sunshine
    Performing Thursday night at Boiler Room

  6. "Sunday Morning", Dem Southernfolkz
    Performing Sunday night at Andy's Bar

  7. "Truth on Tape", Smile Smile
    Performing Sunday night at Boiler Room

  8. "Come Closer", Shiny Around the Edges
    Performing Saturday night at Texas 8 Ball, as part of the Asthmatic Kitty Records showcase

  9. "Wedding Bell Murders", The Timeline Post
    Performing Thursday night at Banter, as part of the Gutterth showcase

  10. "As Hard as the Road Ahead", Western Giants
    Performing Sunday night at Sweetwater Grill & Tavern

  11. "Patricia Lynn", The Crash That Took Me
    Performing Thursday night at Hailey's

  12. "Barrel Chested", Slobberbone
    Performing Saturday night at Dan's Silverleaf

  13. "Winter Dies", Midlake
    Performing Saturday afternoon at the North Texas Fairgrounds right before Flaming Lips take the stage, but you knew that already, didn't you?

My apologies to A.M. Ramblers, Bridges & Blinking Lights, the cut*off, Damaged Good$, The Demigs, Doug Burr, Giggle Party, The Heelers, Here Holy Spain, Jessie Frye, The Naptime Shake, Nervous Curtains, Oso Closo, PVC Street Gang, Record Hop, Sarah Jaffe, Telegraph Canyon, and all the other awesome artists who I couldn't add to the list. If I did, it would be the lucky thirty and not the lucky thirteen, which just doesn't have the same ring to it.

By the way, next week's playlist is all about SXSW, both the official and unofficial shows. If you want on the list, send your mp3s (scroll above for the email address) and you might wind up being one of the lucky thirteen.
