Independent Film Channel starts SxSW off with Gomez and Decemberists partay

Quick recap of last night: The IFC (the Independent Film Channel) brought Austin quite a party with Gomez and the Decemberists.

We stood in line for an hour-and-a-half Monday morning for tickets and then for another hour just to get in, but it was well worth it. This was the first time I have been in Pangaea, the space that was once the Downtown Alamo Drafthouse. It's a gorgeous space and small enough that we were able to get pretty darn close to the stage.

Gomez was terrific as usual. They never disappoint. The boys played songs from their new album, A New Tide as well as old favorites. A cool moment was the mention that Gomez played SxSW 11 years ago.

The Decemberists also stepped it up. They played old favorite and will play their entire album The Hazards of Love. So if you are planning to catch them tonight, have fun!
