The Fratelli's doing "The Seeker" with Pete Townshend at SXSW

Now that SXSW has wrapped, indie bands and up n comers are scattering around the country like cockroaches startled by the kitchen light. Tonight we have three groups that LAist was lucky enough to see out in Austin. We caught Bloc Party putting on an energetic and uplifting set in the back of Stubbs, we saw The Fratelli's do a light-hearted acoustic set on at the Fader Fort, and Amy Winehouse disappointed us in the weird and drippy Eternal club at 1 in the morning. Maybe she will be more inspired tonight.
