The Cropper!

A blog featuring #indie music, news, interviews, & the best darn songs west of Stockholm


SXSW parties keep on coming and this is one of the best yet! Once again Team Clermont has joined forces with Hometapes, Absolutely Kosher, and Misra to present Friend Island!

This year, we will be are transforming a close-in eastside-Austin art space into an all-day party hideout: the third annual Friend Island! The day kicks off at 11am with Sam Amidon and an organic pancake breakfast provided by the excitingly-named Batter Blaster company. It won’t be too early to start enjoying beer from Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery (and it will be free all day long). Afternoon snacks by The Ice Cream Man – and possibly even nachos – will also accompany the greatest lineup of bands in all of Texas.
