The Flairz

Sorry for the little vacation, was busy doing stuff like jetting off to Chicago to see the Fig Dish reunion show and Austin for SXSW 2006.

One of my favorite events at SXSW every year is the Australian BBQ which features tasty Australian food and the wonderful beverage Cooper's Ale. In 2004, I discoverd this awesome band called Ground Components that sounded like a mix of everything that has come out of Detroit over the past 30 or so years.

This year, the "stars" of the Australian BBQ were The Flairz, a trio whose average age is 12! I wouldn't have even thought to check them out had they not left a stack of fliers in the lobby of our hotel in Austin (we later discovered that they were staying at the same hotel we were). The kids are wise beyond their years, channeling the likes of the early Rolling Stones, The Who, and The White Stripes. If that's not a good combination (and done remarkably well), then I don't know what is.

Check out the song that Little Steven has been spinning like mad on his Undergroud Garage radio show.

Not bad (actually, my girfriend walked in and thought I was playing some new Joan Jett):D

Was wondering where you had been; glad you had a good time.
