Looks like a number of Denver acts caught more than just our attention this past week at South By Southwest.
Nathaniel Rateliff, who played an exceptional set at Shakespeare's Ale House last week, impressed Michael Hogan from Vanity Fair (which also previewed a song from his forthcoming record earlier this month on its site) enough to not only seek him out at the Mile Hi-Fidelity party but to include him in a VF Daily dispatch from Austin. "Nathaniel Rateliff played a rip-roaring set of blue-collar folk-rock at Habana Calle 6," reads the photo caption on the SXSW-related post from this past weekend.
Pictureplane, meanwhile, garnered a short profile in Interview, which related this bit about one of his sets last week: "...the motley crowd awaiting Pictureplane in Austin's Iron Gate last week went into a dancing frenzy, creating a half mosh pit, half dance floor."

Finally, Holley 750 got a passing mention on Classic Rock's SXSW blog for its set at Hoeks Death Metal Pizza: "If the singer's Motorhead shirt wasn't clue enough, the band's dirty denim sound of Zeke-meets-Supersuckers offered plenty of boots to the head."
