Dykeenies battle through technical difficulties at SXSW

Scots kick off NME night schedule at Wave

The Dykeenies kicked off the evening portion of ]NME at Wave in Austin tonight, using entirely borrowed gear.

‘Apart from the mishaps, it was great, wee had to borrow a lot of gear’ Steven Ramsay told NME.COM after the show, in what might have been the understatement of the week. Adding ‘And my guitar strap broke’

The band accumulated enough gear to perform by sending a mass text to their musician friends, including Dan Le Sac who told NME later ‘they texted everyone who uses laptops, which was pretty silly!’

The Dykeenies played:

‘My friend Jo’

‘New Ideas’

‘Boys Will Be Boys When It Comes To Girls’

‘Pick You Up’

‘Stitches’

‘Clean Up Your Eyes’

‘Three’s A Crowd’

‘Waiting For Go’
