My picks: NX35 Saturday and Sunday Schedules

February 26, 2010

Alright everyone, welcome to Part 2 of my NX35 festival picks!  I hope you checked out my picks for NX35’s Thursday and Friday schedules and if you’re interested in attending the fest, word has it that wristbands are in short supply.  You may want to get on that.  If you have the time and the opportunity, don’t miss this mini-conference while it is still on the verge of becoming huge.  For now, here are my Saturday and Sunday picks!

Before I get started listing bands here, I should discuss what everyone wants to know about Saturday night: Per the NX35 blog, they will dedicate a separate post on their site giving details for The Flaming Lips, Midlake, and Stardeath and White Dwarfs shows. I’ll post an update here as well once the full info is available.

What NX35 has available now is that “the big show” will take place at the North Texas Fairgrounds around 6 pm.  These shows are scheduled to end around 9:30 pm, at which point, the evening shows I’m about to post will begin.  So, if you were planning on camping out all night to see just the Lips, the good news is you’ll still be able to enjoy all the other great bands lined up for Saturday night!

Okay, with that out of the way…let it begin again!!  These are two TERRIFIC days of music!  Click the jump to see my picks, get links and see videos of the artists!

NX35: Saturday 3/13 Schedule
