Any sign that this ten-year-plus indie institution is ready to slow down was nowhere to be seen at a sweaty, energetic show at Spin's day party at SXSW. Mixing oldies with brash new single "Born To Kill," they roared through a half-hour set with lead man Hutch Harris running into the crowd, writhing on the ground, playing on a top of a speaker and shredding a guitar string, even to the bemusement of his band-mates. Drummer Westin Glass caught the spirit, leading a mosh pit in front for their finale "Here's Your Future." After seeing endless cookie cutter versions of indie rock elsewhere here, their punky blast of energy was refreshing indeed.
