Plastic Pinks Rock The Parish At SXSW THOUGHTS+PHOTOS: Plastic Pinks @ Parish | SXSW 3/14/18
AUSTIN, TX- For most of our SXSW artist coverage, we’ll keep it relatively short and sweet. We have over 80 artists to cover, so cut us some slack! 😉 We’ll basically be formatting each post into two parts: (1) Why our contributor wanted to see this act and (2) what our contributor thought of the performance”. Easy peasy. If you want to learn more about the act, make sure you click through to their social media links to get in the know. You won’t be disappointed!
Why I Wanted To See Plastic Pinks: The first year I attended SXSW, I was particularly blown away by a band from Florida named Plastic Pinks. It was fun, raucous rock and roll played with an attitude that hooked me immediately. The band came through LA once after I saw them in Austin, but when I heard that they were planning on going back to SXSW, I decided to make sure I caught them at least once while I was there.
What I Thought Of Plastic Pinks’ Performance: These guys fucking kill it each time I see them live. I won’t front … it was late at night, and I had walked probably 10 miles earlier in the day, so after I finished taking photographs, I just kind lost myself into their lo-fi, visceral funk. I wasn’t even really paying attention to songs they were playing (although, I’m pretty sure they were playing mostly cuts from their last 2017 EP “All’s Right”). I just wanted to violently nod my head to their rocking noise.
Honestly, I could have easily kept rocking with them for the whole night, but as all SXSW showcase sets are short with quick turn around times for the next act, those 40 glorious minutes of unadulterated rock and roll would have be the panacea that gets me by until the next time.
