SXSW: The Chairs of Perception
With ties extending back to Austin’s original punk scene at Raul’s, The Chairs of Perception (myspace) is no stranger to either Austin or SXSW. It’s undergone various permutations over the years. The current line-up consists of the nucleus (John Talley-Jones and Keven Barrett) of punk rock legend Urinals (aka 100 Flowers) infused with the alt-country / noir-porn vibe of guitarist/novelist Rob Roberge.
Those of us living during the original punk era might be happy to note that tonight’s shows are early enough to get us home to bed on time.
