Howdy, pardners! God, we’re so sorry we said “howdy” and “pardners”; it’s SxSW time again, and we’re excited. Last year, after our yearly showcase at Cheer Up Charlies, we snuck away from the bustle of Dirty Sixth Street and hit the Broken Spoke, a legendary country dancehall with an entire room dedicated to the cowboy hats of the rich and famous. Between glugs of Lone Star, we caught a set from The Derailers, one of the greatest and loudest honky-tonk bands of our time. They covered Buck Owens, they covered The Beatles, they played songs about heartbreak and hangovers, and we tried to dance along with the regulars and failed miserably. That spirit of discovery and possibility defines the SxSW experience, no matter how many stages get sponsored by Doritos.

This year, if you’re looking for something off the beaten path, we’ll be back at Cheer Up Charlies on Red River, putting on two nights of shows on two stages, featuring sets from Snail Mail and Flasher—two artists featured in this zine—as well as HOVVDY, Sudan Archives, A Place to Bury Strangers, Sammus, and Ought. We’ll see you at HOVVDY, pardners, and we’ll try to keep the puns at a minimum.

AdHoc 25's contributors:

Taylor Mulitz is a freelance designer and the guitarist and vocalist of Flasher. He designed this issue’s cover.

Anna True is a food-motivated graphic designer and illustrator. She made the illustrations for this zine.

Jeff Rosenstock is an up-and-coming songwriter from NYC. He penned this issue’s advice column.

Look out for physical copies both at our shows and at record stores, bookstores, coffee shops, and community centers throughout the city. There will also be copies at our SxSW showcases at Cheer Up Charlies. If you happen to live outside of New York, you may order a copy as well. 

Catch AdHoc at SxSW for our Unofficial and Official showcases on 3/14 & 3/16!

AdHoc Seeks Events and Editorial Interns For Summer 2018

AdHoc is seeking both events and editorial interns to work in our Brooklyn office. All candidates must live in the New York area and be available 12-20 hours per week starting mid-May and ending in mid-August.

Editorial internship tasks include assisting with copy-editing, fact-checking, research, CMS, social media, conducting artist interviews, writing contribution, and zine distribution. 

Event internship tasks include ticket counts, social media management, handling music submissions, fact-checking, using Photoshop/video editing software, building marketing plans, zine distribution, and, after some training, show booking. You should have excellent research skills, a laptop, and familiarity with the local music scene. The ability to gain school credit for the internship is strongly preferred but not required.

For consideration, please specify which internship you'd like to apply for in your cover letter, and submit your resume, 2 writing samples, and a list of your top 5 albums and tracks of 2018 (so far) in an email to internships@adhoc.fm with the subject line “SUMMER INTERNSHIP 2018″ by March 20th.

Dear Nora's Katy Davidson Shares Her Favorite Dear Nora Deep Cuts

After their humble beginnings at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR, Dear Nora has stuck around for the long haul. The band has been producing its own brand of subdued folk-pop since 1999. In 2008, they disbanded. With the re-release of Mountain Rock last year, the fans latched back on and interest in Dear Nora was once again apparent. Ahead of their show on 3/2 at Park Church Co-Op, singer & guitarist Katy Davidson, also of Key Losers and Lloyd & Michael, shared a playlist of songs with AdHoc spanning her career as a musician. 

"I made this playlist because I want to share a collection of my songs that are potentially lesser-known but are some of my personal favorites," Katie told AdHoc. "I’m including some stream-of-consciousness notes about each song—things that occur to me as I listen to them. I haven’t heard some of these songs in many, many years. All three of my bands are represented here."
