“Ewok Sadness” by Marijuana Deathsquads at the BTR Day Party in Austin, TX - BTR Hear & There [ep87]

On March 15, 2014, BTR threw a free, unofficial day party during the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas. Held at The Liberty — a great East Side watering hole with a huge outdoor area, including a bar and the East Side King food truck — we hosted a fun-filled day with music from Clouder, The So So Glos, Gringo Star, Diane Coffee, Milagres, Zorch, and Marijuana Deathsquads. Our friends at Southern Tier Brewing Company provided complimentary beers for our guests.

Minneapolis noise band Marijuana Deathsquads is the ever-evolving, experimental project lead by Ryan Olson, Isaac Gale (whose videos for Bon Iver, Polica, P.O.S., and On An On you may have seen), and Stefon Alexander (P.O.S), and supported by multiple drummers and other performers contributing synths, vocals, and miscellaneous sounds to the sonic chaos. They’ve quickly become a BTR favorite (you may have caught their incredible session for Serious Business on BTR), so of course we had to have them headline our day party! Here, we get down in the dirt and on the stage with the band as they tear through their single, “Ewok Sadness.”

Featured song: “Ewok Sadness”

The latest release by Marijuana Deathsquads, Oh My Sexy Lord, is available now from Totally Gross National Product.
