The entire team of Poule d’Or spent the last week in Austin at South by Southwest as part of a bigger adventure that you can follow here. It was my first time at SXSW and surprisingly I caught pretty much every show I wanted to see. So here goes a little series on who we saw and particularly liked.
The first showcase we saw was at Mohawk Patio with Anoraak and Housse de Racket among the exclusively french the line-up. A vibrant tip-off to SXSW on Wednesday night with a packed audience. Housse de Racket expectedly put on an epic show, go see them if you can. Absolutely brilliant. Anoraak on the other hand was the bigger surprise. The Parisian trio had the entire hipster audience eating out of their hands with their synth-driven show which was way more forward and rocky than their recorded material.
