Lou Reed To Keynote SXSW

The South By Southwest Music Conference and Film Festival are pleased to announce that Lou Reed will be the keynote speaker for 2008. Reed’s keynote will be held in conjunction with a screening of Julian Schnabel’s film “Lou Reed’s ‘Berlin,’” which documents a recent performance of the landmark 1973 album. Reed’s groundbreaking work with the Velvet Underground and subsequent solo work reverberate through the music world to this day. His music continues to explore themes and sounds in a singular style, staking new territory for rock and roll. Reed will speak at the Austin Convention Center on March 13 as the kickoff of the twenty-second annual SXSW.

Another Band Rises From The Ashes ...

The ashes of Hot Snakes/Drive Like Jehu/Rocket From The Crypt that is. Hot Snakes were incredible and I'm not sure that this can live up to that, but here's hoping. The main thing keeping it from this, is that Rick won't be handling the vocals. John Reis has created this and it sounds like he will be doing the vocals.

"John Reis has also formed yet another new band. In addition to Reis, the currently unnamed group features the talents of Gar Wood (Hot Snakes, Beehive & the Barracudas), Jason Kourkounis (Hot Snakes, Mule, Delta 72), and Tommy Kitsos (CPC Gangbangs). The band will make its debut on March 25 with the release of its first album via Vagrant and Reis' own Swami Records. Then they'll hit the road."
