Video Premiere: Blitzen Trapper - SXSW 2012 Mini-Doc
South By Southwest is almost upon us. Every year, we anticipate that special week in Austin where we discover new favorites and celebrate old pros within the music industry, and 2013 will be no exception. It’s Paste’s biggest year yet, with seven days of music lined up to showcase just a fraction of the bands worth your listening time.
Paste SXSW dayparty alumni and Portland-based band Blitzen Trapper has assembled a few documentary-style videos with the help of Onion Creek Productions to reminisce about the festivities in Austin last year. The latest video in this series is a mini-doc that features the band discussing their whirlwind schedule, their miraculous tour manager, and the adorable celebrity dog Boo (it turns out lead singer Eric Early can’t resist the pup, either). Check out the mini-documentary in the player below. You might even catch a few clips from the band’s appearance at the Paste event.
