SXSW 2007 Free Shows: Public Enemy, Mastodon

Holy Crap! I posted this past weekend about Mastodon making an appearance at SXSW this year. Well, Joe Gross of the Statesman says:

Get ready for some classic hip-hop and modern metal (though not at the same time) courtesy of South By Southwest, all for free.

Public Enemy and Ozomatli headline a free show on the Town Lake Stage at Auditorium Shores stage on Friday, March 16. Mastodon, Against Me!, the Riverboat Gamblers and more play the popular free stage on March 17. Times are still not set, though the Friday show usually starts after 5 p.m. and the Saturday show starts in the afternoon, complete with kid’s fare in the early afternoon. The lineup for the Thursday free show remains unconfirmed.

I’ll have to haul ass over there after my showcase on Friday and it’s going to take a disaster of biblical proportions to keep me away on Saturday. I’m guessing Iggy Pop will be part of the free stuff as well? And what about Thurston Moore? Can’t wait to find out more. Very exciting. I really enjoyed the free shows last year. I’m surprised Ozomatli is returning to SXSW after what happened to them in 2004.
