The last few weeks saw an estimated 75,000 people converge on Austin, Texas for one of the country’s biggest music and media festivals, SXSW. Filmmakers, tech gurus and, of course, musicians from all over the world came to show us their stuff, bringing make-it-or-break-it attitudes to the heart of Texas in an effort to score that big deal. It’s crazy, crowded, and sometimes downright bizarre, but it has become a staple of Austin music culture and possibly the most anticipated event of the year.
mahoshojo ni naritai
A self-proclaimed “no-genre band,” Mahoshojo ni naritai is dripping with nerd-core goodness. With a sound straight out of an old-school video game, the synth backdrop and effected vocals make you feel like you’re adventuring with Zelda or defeating evil mages in Final Fantasty I. Even navigating their OHP feels like a video game. Check them out after the break.
