March 18, 2013
AUSTIN — South by Southwest, a music, film, and interactive conference and festival, is known for its extensive and diverse collection of bands that come from different parts of the country to perform in the heart of downtown’s Sixth Street and other venues surrounding the city.
The Shout Out Louds, a Swedish band, performed Friday at Easy Tiger Bake Shop and Beer Garden. The band played tracks from its latest albums “Work” and “Optica,” giving the audience a sound of its new music. Its performance was 30 minutes long, but the band managed to give the audience a good vibe that lasted thorough out the show and the rest of the night.
Having a indie pop-rock sound, the band’s music made people dance their feet off, and the audience members in the balcony were rushing to get down to the main crowd. Adam Olenius, singer and guitarist of SOL, danced on top of amplifiers and encouraged the audience to sing along.
The band is originally from Stockholm but came to the U.S. to be signed. Although the band has been together for more than 12 years, it has only released four albums.
