SXSW: Emily Long, Rock Vixen/The Watermarks

Emily Long

Expect a sweaty dance party scene when Emily Long brings the catchy hooks and anthemic melodies of her debut album When I Was In Love With for a couple of shots at SXSW.  She opens for Ian McLagan and the Bump Band at the Dog and Duck Pub‘s annual St. Patrick’s Day party on Wednesday, then hits the Moose Lodge on Saturday at 11:30 a.m.

Houston’s own the Watermarks are also playing at the Moose Lodge, 10 p.m. Saturday.  The Watermarks effortlessly bridge the gap between rock and electronic music. The band are known not only for their incendiary live performances, but also their D.I.Y. approach to recording, writing, and producing which has yielded two self released EPs.  Indie rock D.I.Y. ethics, noise-pop sensibilities and electronic textures have led the band to craft a unique sound where melody is the main character …a  sound that is danceable and poppy yet full of loud guitars and heavy organic drums.
