TONIGHT IN TEXAS AT SXSW!
BP Fallon and his band are Special Guests at the Rajiworld-presented Victoria Williams Sweet Relief benefit at Jovita’s, 1619 First Street, Austin, TX. They take the stage at 6.30pm, after Kathy Valentine of The Go-Go’s and the Michael Des Barres truth revue.
By Jennifer Brandon:
Now BP Fallon. Where do I even begin? A small, wee Irishman with shining skin, a mischievous smile, armed with a notebook of intense lyrical poems on the direction of pop culture and commentary on what’s happened to rock’n’roll.
Flanked by Blondie’s rhythm section (Clem Burke on drums and Nigel Harrison on bass) and lead guitarist Aaron Lee Tasjan (who has played with The New York Dolls), BP set out to jostle the minds of his audience.
Go to his site to listen to the Jack White-produced ‘I Believe in Elvis Presley’. It doesn’t demonstrate the insanity of seeing the guy live though. He really was provocative and old school. Another pleasant surprise and super fun.
