WFUV at SXSW: The Beards at Hotel San Jose

The Beards (@The_Beards) attest to having a miserable time being interviewed by the clean-shaven Russ Borris. They did have glowing reviews for the work of cameraman Tim Pierson, however. Wanna guess why?

Nathaniel Beard (bass), John Beardman Jr. (drums), Facey McStublington (guitar), and Johann Beardraven (vocals, saxophone and keytar) have been recording together in their native Australia since 2005.

They cite among their inspirations Chuck Norris’ beard (not the man, just the beard); and ZZ Top, obviously.

Wild Feathers (@WildFeathers) is a self-described "four-headed monster" from Nashville, based on the eternal rock truths of six strings, booming harmonies and the call of the open road. The four heads bear the unique voices of four formerly full-time lead singers: Ricky Young, Joel King, Taylor Burns and Preston Wimberly, who share both vocal and songwriting talents, like many of our favorites (see: Beatles, The Band, Gomez).

We'll also add those performances to your Friday night soundtrack on FUV and The Alternate Side, starting at 7pm — right after the Public Radio Rocks SXSW Day Stage.
