event::about 

Who: Entrepreneurs, startups, press, lurkers, and ambitious upstarts. How: Beer, awesome interviews and amazing people.   Details Think of it as the Mixergy you love...live and in person...with top interviewees...and drinks.   Making it possible Three people offered to sponsor the event and make it possible. Chris Savage, Wistia's founder, volunteered  to sponsor before I even knew where or when it'll take place. (Wistia is the video platform I use for all of Mixergy's videos. Try it and you'll see why.) Ben Welch-Bolen, CEO of Site5 Hosting, is a guy I personally asked over dinner to do a Mixergy interview but he refused because he's not ready to reveal how well Site5 is doing. (If you come, please help me persuade him.) Josh Kaufman is the author of Personal MBA, the Amazon.com Business Management Bestseller. After spending 5 minutes on the phone with him, I practically begged Josh to teach me. I think you'll want to grab his book. Todd Garland, the Founder of BuySellAds.com, bought my last sponsorship spot. How fitting! Did you know there's a page on his site where you can see how much ad money he generates for every one of the publishers in his network? Before you buy or sell an online ad, check this page out.   Credit where it's due The idea for this event wasn't mine. These two guys cooked it up and are helping me put it together. Noah Kagan - the founder of Killer Web Deals site, AppSumo.com and RewardLevel.com Damon Clinkscales - a software developer and community shepherd in Austin who is also a huge Mixergy fan. He loves to bring people together.

Pat Ramsey, of the Austin WordPress Meetup, and I agreed that SXSW Interactive 2011 would be the perfect place to host another party. I then contacted Jason and Aaron at WP Engine, and they said:Count us in!

We picked a date and I contacted John Wickham to reserve Elysium for the event. When you combine Austin's WordPress community with all the WordPress users coming to Austin for SXSW, you'll need a big venue. Elysium is 3 blocks from the convention center, has a great stage and sound system, and can hold hundreds.

event::about  Romulus Ate is a performance group that came together in the University of Texas Department of Theatre and Dance. Formed in 2010, Romulus lives in the space between performance art, a dance concert, and a rock show. The music combines elements of pop, rock, and ambient electronic genres. The company of 5 dancers, 2 lighting designers, 4 musicians, a makeup artist and a costume designer perform an energy filled set with flashing lights, thumping music, and sweaty bodies. The show was designed with the idea of combining a professional theatrical production with the grittiness of a rock show, and creating a performance world in which anything can happen. During the set, traditional boundaries of performance, gender, and musical genre are subverted and reinvestigated through the passion driven work of the company.

TRUST combine dark synth arpeggios, live and programmed drum beats with haunting, effected vocals. What begins in the genre of minimal synth progresses into a sort of slow-techno that is equal parts introspective cold-wave and extroverted 808 dance beats. TRUST have already begun to draw huge support in their hometown of Toronto where they have opened for Glass Candy, Hercules and Love Affair, Washed Out, and Zola Jesus.

Previous endeavors with Helios Creed / Chrome, and current life threatening duties as evangelist for Rusted Shut, Future Blondes is a step sideways and around. They have seen their sound evolve into part dance / part happening / part metaphysical freak out, taking place, with the help of Book of Shadows... gears often reverse to reveal the sound of one's higher self into the ethereal realm of white light...

They have scored and performed live original soundtracks to the Fritz Lang films Metropolis and Destiny (Der Mude Tod). Critics have had the following to say: ST 37, long-running specialists in bubbling-mercury riffage and German-flavored trance rock... - David Fricke (Rolling Stone) These Texas astronauts stuff their hash pipes to the brim and pay homage to Can, Amon Duul and Chrome...their psychedelicatessen of originals is stocked with brain-melting skree...- Fred Mills (Magnet) My favorite track on the album is "Concrete Island, an adaptation of J.G. Ballard...on first listening...I recalled reading this book so vividly and so perfectly, I was amazed. This recollection was unlike any feeling I have previously known or felt from music...- Adam Strider (StriderNews) From the moment the credits open, the band launches into a continuously evolving and strangely beautiful ethereal drone lasting the duration of the 1926 silent film classic. (from a review of ST 37's soundtrack to Fritz Lang's "Metropolis") - Michael Bertin (Austin Chronicle) A friend of mine said I would get a "kick" out of it...I did. - Byron Coley ..paint-blistering guitar and some elegant phased bass work poised atop droning vocal splendor... - Phil McMullen (Ptolemaic Terrascope) The piledriving Hawkwind-y/Wipers stuff near the end is still my favorite. - Jello Biafra ...real mindblown 1990s American garage sputter here! - Chris Stigliano (Your Flesh) Into the likes of Viv Akauldren, Loop, Chrome et al.?...wailing distorted guitars, effects and electronics...I await further releases with interest. - Alan Freeman (Audion) Twistedly psychedelic and swirling in a cyclonic stew...one of the most infectiously woven slabs of noise- as- music released since the 60s drug boom. - Andrea 'Enthal (Alternative Press) Melting Euphoria and the Texan band ST 37 are the two best working psychedelic bands in America today. - Andre (Crohinga Well)

Psychic TV / PTV3
56 schedule::attendees
Location Elysium
eventtype  Music
event::about  Psychic TV was first born in 50 Beck Road, Hackney in 1982 following his tennination of Throbbing Gristle in 1981. Six months later the duo completed the nucleus of the new unit with ex-TG'er Peter Christopherson. By that time Genesis had already conceived, named and pioneered the genre "lndustrial Music" wtth Throbbing Gristle. Along with the Velvet Underground, Throbbing Gristle is and remains one of the most Influential rock groups of the last 30 years; if you haven't heard their music, you will certainly have listened to someone who has. In Throbbing Gristle, Genesis and company synthesized the influences and philosophies of Gen's close friends and collaborators, including Beat writer William S. Burroughs; Beat poet and painter Brion Gysin; psychedelic shaman Dr Timothy Leary; queer activist film maker Derek Jarman; and those of legendary occultist Austin Osman Spare, theorist John Cage and various seminal underground authors, thinkers, artists and film makers. The group "TG" produced some of the most unsettling and thoughtprovoking music of all time. Their pioneering "Industrial" sound and self-sufficient approach to record disbibution has had a profound impact, becoming key elements of underground music production and distribution ever since. Right from the outset, Psychic TV in tum made highly innovative and unflinchingly provocative music blending elements of psychedelia and dance with Industrial sounds (named "HYPERDELIC" by Genesis). As with TG, the details of Psychic TV's packaging, marketing and the radical lifestyle of the musicians were all treated as equally crucial components of the final aesthellc statement. Psychic TV created the template for the current avant-dance stance popularly labeled "Electronlca" as well as having an undeniable Inftuence on the emergent "Rave" culture; the group released the world's first 12 inch single with the words "ACID HOUSE" in the title, "Turn On Tune In To The Acid House." The label depicted Superman as a tab of LSD emblazoned with their logo the Psychic(k) Cross and biggered a suppressive lawsuit making this withdrawn icon a rare collectible! For some 14 odd years, Psychic TV recorded and released dozens of live and studio albums ending up in the Guiness Book Of Records for releasing more albums in one year than any other artist (even Elvis!). Psychic TV was terminated in the mid 90's as Genesis pursued further musical goals with his spoken-word and expanded poetry/video installation project Thee Majesty. In 2003, Edley ODowd of New York City's legendary rock band Toilet Boys gently but persistently persuaded Genesis to rekindle her rock spirit and Psychic TV. Edley succeeded and they played their first public show that December. Once PTV3 reached the recording studio, ODowd played a crucial part in pushing Genesis and the other musicians to give their very best, and then some, getting stellar performances out of all concerned as a result. The reactivated ensemble led by ODowd, has been touring the US, Europe and Russia and releasing music ever since. The full history of Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and her varied seminal musical exploits of the past three decades as well as her soclo-cultural (or should that be politico-sexual? Or all the above!) adventures would easily fill a book (and has ... Soft SkulVShortwave Books published "Painful but Fabulous: The Lives and Art of Genesis P-Orridge" in 2003 and more recently with "Thee Psychick Bible" in hardcover in 2009 and paperback in 2010). Genesis continues to exhibit artwork around the globe (Most recently at Art Basel Miami and The Serpentine Gallery, London). Already living a creative further chapter of her "life" book Genesis continues to provoke and explore in her very public private life; from replacing all her healthy teeth with solid gold permanent replicas in an homage to Pierre Clemente in Luis Bunuel's "Belle De Jour." Littering the dictionary and culture with new words for new, original ideas Genesis can be said to follow the serious process and joy-filled strategy of "When there is no example imagine it, when there is no word for it invent one."

BUT: she’s not 10 tons of slut in a mini skirt and nipple tape, belly dancing on a crucifix. Her voice will stop you in your tracks. It brings grown men to tears on live television (seriously). It soars, then falters, then soars again and it is full off sorrow even when it is full of joy (soft, broken, soaring, sorrow, spitting, sneering, smiling etc etc etc). And she can dance. She grew up in Papua New Guinea, so she is a wild girl that knows which tree has water in it’s trunk, but she speaks French and wears couture even though she can’t afford groceries. She was Triple J Unearthed. She’s the Vanda and Young Song Writing Competition. She’s an APRA Ambassador. She now has 6 ARIA nominations and a Gold Record under her belt. She made an album called “I Believe You Liar” and it’s not like other records. It’s better and it’s hard to tell why exactly. They’re all pop songs but not like you think. They are really, REALLY wordy twisty complicated key changing sons of bitches that you’d have to go to music school for 6 years to play (she did) but after they’re done you can remember every chorus and every hook, and on the second listen you may be able to sing back most of the words. “I knew as soon as I heard Megan choosing not to rhyme “Clementine” with “wine” that here was someone unpredictable. Australia, you have a new and original troubadour to lift your spirits and warm your hearts.” Tim Finn (Crowded House / Split Enz)

Having been strongly influenced by black music, ZUKUNASISTERS’ music is a blend of 60’s to 70’s R&B, soul, and gospel. The band’s unique groove and dramatic chorus work is indeed the product of members’ chemistry. Emi’s singing which is often referred to as Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin, and the band’s tireless energy and vibes inflame and thrill the audience – the performance you will never forget. In 2005 the band signed with UK Project and released “GOTiSOUL”. In 2007 the band began a bimonthly one-man live show at Shibuya BYG. The show has been taken place at Shimokitazawa CLUB QUE since 2009. ZUKUNASISTERS has appeared in a number of Japanese music festivals including FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL (2006, 2009), SUNSET LIVE (2006), ARABAKI ROCK FESTIVAL (2009), EARTHDAY TOKYO (2009), MINAMI WHEEL (2008, 2009), and MANGETSU-SAI (from 2006 to 2008, 2010). In 2011 the four girls fully prepared for the upcoming US tour, decided on calling themselves “ZUKUNASISTERS” to identify themselves in overseas markets, while keeping “ZUKUNASI” strictly for the Japanese market. Believing in the power of music, ZUKUNASISTERS keeps on creating compelling melodies and great beats. Real soul music & women’s power at its best yet, ZUKUNASISTERS is bound to be a central figure in the music scene of the new decade.

event::about  The monster rock band is from Japan which the clearance of new music scene, and they have a music history of good quality. Their glamorous and another dimension looks will must be shocked everyone. Sometimes their sound slashes with audience like a KATANA, and sometimes it brings in sweet and devilish kiss. They are proper for the pioneer of 10’ new age. The identity of the monster band is the four girls from the little island country Japan. When they started the band activity, the four lost their ego, because of the reaction of spending in the dark, and they headed for on the stage after going mad and shouting. The vocalist, Inko provokes audience with the dance, called “Inko dance”, and she sings songs with venting her frustration for the world. She has the outstanding sense of pops, so her unforgettable melody will come around in your mind. It seems as if she is a “crazy clown”. Beside Inko, the guitarist called Youkaku plays the guitar as she is obsessed by something. Warping her body, she gives the noise with her fiery eyes. Her play of the guitar with cramping is the image of chaos. Then the bassist, Yukary is the essence of the band. Her face is veiled with her forelock, and it doesn’t have expression. But the roaring bass phrase is violence, so the audience cannot help dancing. The drummer, Lyn keeps the rhythm with Yukary. She embodies the rhythm by using her all body, so her performance will entertain not only your hearing, but also your sight. Her arms move like a living snake, and make the great grooves. Their music based on the garage punk of new wave style, and they take in also the variety of elements such as R&R, psychedelic rock, and dance tune and so on. And their stage is the entertainment with strange atmosphere. Is it the movie from behind the screen, or the shed of spectacle? They are raved by the media in Japan, and their impetus doesn’t stay in Japan. So, it runs over the world. There will be many addicts of them throughout the world soon. The goal of them is only the turnover the world by their music, and the day approaches. They played at SXSW2010 !!!

Location Elysium
eventtype  Music
event::about  MO' SOME TONEBENDER was formed in Fukuoka City, Japan. Members are Kazuhiro Momo, Isamu Fujita, and Yasunori Takei. Since their unity in 1997, the band has reigned over the the Japanese alternative rock scene. Even after releasing more than 10 albums, they resist to stay in one spot and continue exploring for a new sound. They have performed on the main stages of major festivals in Japan such as Fuji Rock Festival, Summer Sonic. They have supported the Japan tour of GUIDED BY VOICES, The PIXIES, The Libertines, and some of the domestic bands that they have toured with include Yura Yura Teikoku, GuitarWolf, Polysics, and Numbergirl. "Mo'some Tonebender have the distinction of being one of maybe a dozen bands of their time that really lived up to the "alternative" part of alternative rock. The group used the abrasive, fuzz-driven sound reminiscent of Hüsker Dü as a springboard, mixing it with about any other influence that stirred their fancy, from punk and industrial to synth pop and bits of jazz. This catchy, mildly demented concoction didn't bring them huge sales, but was hardly expected to, anyway, and their reputation as a hidden treasure of J-rock can still be envied by many bigger and blander acts.

event::about  6-year-old Eden Rice (the romantic) and 4-year-old Kemp Muhl (the cynic) first met while playing with ducks by a lakeside, and grew up together in a Norman Rockwell painting in the heat of suburban Georgia. Sharing a fascination with nature, birds, fairies and Shakespeare, they developed into creative and slightly eccentric teenage outcasts. They painted side by side, exchanged talents, shared secrets and made up their own imaginary language. In their early teens, Eden, a classically-trained choral singer and Kemp, a self-taught guitar plucker, wrote dozens of songs. Then fate intervened, and they were separated...Six years later, after a bit of exposure to the world and to proper guitar chords, they came together again to record their childhood songs.
