Noisecore greats Today is the Day headlined the inaugural Invisible Oranges day party at The Jr on March 15th during SXSW, alongside melodic doomers Pallbearer, metallic-noise masters KEN Mode, melodic southern throwbacks Royal Thunder, Richmond’s Inter Arma, Brooklyn doom crew Batillus and Vancouver d-beaters Baptists. Free and open to the public, the show was the only gratis performances from Today is the Day and KEN Mode, who arrived in Austin the night prior. We’d like to send a hearty thanks to each and every band who performed at this special event, as well as the many entrants who came and sold-out the room and the venue in general (BrooklynVegan hosted a show in the adjacent room).
In addition to intense riffery, Onkyo was onsite, sampling their new headphones which hit stores next month. Mophie maker of invaluable iPhone chargers, were giving away discount cards good at their pop-up shop which was set up right across the street on Red River. We were also serving complimentary Jameson, and Zico coconut water, free vegan queso and chips from Food For Lovers, and free vegan breakfast tacos from Pink Avocado. We also had Invisible Oranges t-shirts for the first 50 people in the door, thanks to American Apparel. Also thanks to our other sponsors, M for Montreal, Korg, Vox, Blackstar, Creative Recreation, Signazon, ASCAP, forthcoming Noisey show Heavy Dicks (featuring IO editor Fred Pessaro), MailChimp and Redigi.
