19. She’s a Tease pop quiz
The SXSW 2011 popolio pop quiz interview domination on this countdown continues.   This is the fifth overall and third consecutive SXSW 2011 pop quiz entry.  I believe She’s a Tease is our first entry on either countdown by a band from Mexico.  Canada’s BRAIDS took the Number 30 spot with theirs, Australia’s the Jezabels’ Number 23, Japan’s Peelander-Z, Number 21, and ATX’s own, Quiet Company, holds the Number 20 spot.  Keepin’ it international here at THE REAL popolio!

See the original Monday, March 14, 2011 post here — She’s a Tease pop quiz interview – SXSW Artist.  It includes their song, “Why (Does Your Love Hurt So Much)” and its accompanying video.

20. Quiet Company pop quiz
The SXSW 2011 popolio pop quiz interviews are really making a dent in this countdown.  This is the fourth one and the first to feature an ATX band.  Quiet Company is holding it down at Number 20.  BRAIDS took the Number 30 spot with theirs, the Jezabels’ Number 23, and I just posted Peelander-Z’s at Number 21.

See the original Wednesday, March 9, 2011 post here — Quiet Company pop quiz interview – SXSW Artist.  It includes their song, “How Do You Do It,” and Leona Lewis’ video for “I See You” (Theme from Avatar).

21. Peelander-Z pop quiz
This is the third pop quiz interview from my 10 special SXSW 2011 pop quizzes.  BRAIDS took the Number 30 spot with theirs and I just posted the Jezabels’ at Number 23.

Interesting to note, this is our second entry by a Japanese band.  TsuShiMaMiRe tied for the Number 22 spot with Elephant Sky and now we have Peelander-Z, who actually opened for the El Paso show that is the focus of TsuShiMaMiRe’s 10Q featured in Number 22.

See the original Wednesday, March 16, 2011 post here — Peelander-Z pop quiz interview – SXSW Artist.  It includes their song, “Taco Taco Taco,” and a video of  music by Bulgarian vocalist, Yanka Rupkina, over scenes from Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai.

23. The Jezabels pop quiz
This is the second pop quiz interview from my 10 special SXSW 2011 pop quizzes.  BRAIDS took the Number 30 spot with theirs.  I just posted the Jezabelslatest video,”Endless Summer,” about a week ago and linked their pop quiz to it.  That may have helped move them to the Number 23 spot.

On this year’s SXSW pop quizzes, I included a brief one sentence description of each featured act and all the details of their SXSW showcases at the top of those posts.

See the original Friday, March 13, 2011 post here — The Jezabels pop quiz interview – SXSW Artist.  It includes their song, “Mace Spray,” and the Beastie Boys’ video for “Sabotage.”

I try to keep THE REAL popolio a music site. Purely entertainment.  Not news.  Not gossip.  Or sensationalism.  Now, if someone relevant passes away or something like that, I do feel a need to comment.  But, it’s case-by-case and dependent on my mood and how I feel about the artist.  Really it goes back to relevancy for myself and for the site.

The Shondes were a band I had featured during Year 1 and we’ve kept in touch since then.  So, when I saw their late February 2011 Facebook post that their tour van had been stolen and that they were in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a new one, I had to jump on board to try to help them.

I reposted their campaign.  You can see the original Thursday, March 3, 2011 post here — The Shondes Van Stolen, Help Them Get a New One!

This cry for help takes the Year 3 Number 24 spot.  And, yes, they made their deadline and were able to get a new van.  It was all thanks to the support of their fans, friends, and family.
