The following is a (nearly) complete list of what our dear friends EMA, Fucked Up, Perfume Genius, Kurt Vile and The Young are doing in Austin, TX this week (on stage, anyway). Please be advised that events marked "*" are considered official SXSW presentations and will likely require a badge, wristband or cover charge for entry (unless you are so incredibly good looking that such requirements are always waived on your behalf). I wish you a very pleasant week in my town of residence and thank you in advance for not parking in front of my fucking driveway.

Oakland, CA's Tank Crimes will be releasing the 6th edition in Fucked Up's Zodiac Series this April 15 with a 12"/CD/digital EP of 'Year Of The Dragon'. The titular, epic A-side clocks in at 17 minutes long and is backed by covers of Cardboard Brains' "I Wanna Be A Yank" and The Ugly's "Disorder". The first pressing of the 12" is said to include a 6-minute, edited version of "Year Of The Dragon" on a 7" flexi-disc.
We'll have an announcement to make about a new, full-length Fucked Up album on Matador very soon.
