Comments Off on show pic-olio: 6/2/09 Black Moth Super Rainbow@Mohawk Patio — Austin
Black Moth Super Rainbow have been mentioned here at popolio a couple of times. Tickets to this show were part of a contest through Birds Barbershop that we were lucky enough to be the first to announce here. We also did a 5 Questions for interview with Tobacco of BMSR that posted prior to this show here.
Now, this show was packed! BMSR have quite a following, so it was hard to get good pics. You’ll see their massive fandamonium in this pic-olio. I did the best I could under the circumstances. So, check it out!

(Part 2 David Garza here or scroll down for it and Part 1 Maneja Beto here or scroll down.) Check out the Charanga Cakewalk popolio pop quiz here and enjoy this last pic-olio of the ¡Pachanga! series.

So, this is the last installment of our special sxsw show pic-olios this week. This one features 2009 Grammy Nominee, Wayna. She was 1 of our 5 SXSW pop quiz Artists featured earlier this month. I wasn’t able to get out to The Wong Boys’ or Clarence Bucaro’s shows to take pics, but do check out their pop quizzes here and here.
Now, I had never seen Wayna perform prior to her Grammy Nomination, but she definitely brought her A game to SXSW afterwards. I just wonder if she stepped it up after the nomination or if she was always performing that way. She involved the crowd in sing-backs, brought up a previous performer (lead performer Ter’ell Shahid of local Austin band, NeckBone) for a number, and had some nice convo with the audience.
Remember, Wayna and Kendra Ross were both part of the same soul showcase at SXSW. The indie soul revolution is alive and well and will not be televised (but it might be streamed on your computer internet) and these are two of the ladies leading the charge. You need to check them both out.
Editor’s Note: Pic 3 wasn’t intentional, but it looks kind of experimental and cool, so I decided to include it. Pic 4 has a big ‘ole head in it. There was a flurry of photogs and I’m fairly new to this gig. So, excuse da’ head. Lastly, I hope you enjoyed the sxsw show pic-olios this week.
