Because we have the greatest boss ever who just let's us do whatever we think is the right thing to do, we gladly accepted his invitation to post on Austinist this week while we're at SXSW. So yesterday we told the nice people here of Texas what we thought the best LA bands were who were playing. One commenter was negative to our suggestion that Har Mar Superstar was worthy of inclusing. Well last night he put all haters, doubters, and cynics to rest with a sweaty, cocky, beautiful set at the Flamingo Cantina as part of the Dim Mak showcase on 6th Street.

Following the hard rocking set by those long-haired Willowz (who reminds us a lot of the hairdos by Redd Kross), Har Mar took to the stage and not only demanded respect and applause but continually ordered Jagermeister's from the bartender from the stage.

And yes, he made out with a variety of willing young ladies, all while mostly naked and sporting one of the biggest beer bellies in the house.

Inspiring only begins to describe the evening.
