Show Review

12:30 in the afternoon is not an easy spot to absolutely own, especially on a week day, especially at SXSW. 12:30PM SX time is like 6:30AM normal time. People have been out all night consuming unconscious amounts of alcohol (and other?), they've just rolled out of bed, the caffeine hasn't quite kicked in, and the hazy darkness of a club feels like a severe shock to the system. Yet there was ASTR - the NYC-based electro duo consisting of Adam Pallin and Zoe Silverman - providing the thrilling wake-up call everyone needed with a performance that cracked like dynamite. 12:30PM? Pffft...it didn't matter what time it was when ASTR blew up the Baeble Bounce House with tracks from their 2014 EP Varsity and their recent album, Homecoming. It was suddenly just fine to knock back a few drinks, it was suddenly OK to lose your mind to the disco inspired beats, nocturnal synths, and sing-along hooks. ASTR knocked the SX clock off the wall with an explosive performance you can now enjoy in its' entirety.

Thanks for having us.
music
All of my dreams been crushed before I've been swallowed, we fall down
All of my love's been lost before I've been stomped into the ground
I'm a gross bitch, I don't fake shit I can have this, on my way to nowhere
I'm a cool kid, I'm gonna fool this Inhabition, on my way to nowhere
Let's go!
We fall down, come elate me Come elate me, we fall down
We fall down, come elate me Come elate me, we fall down
All of my skin's been shed before I've been bled out in the crowd
What the fuck I've been waiting for Paved my troubles in the ground
I'm a gross bitch, I don't fake shit I can have this, on my way to nowhere
I'm a cool kid, I'm gonna fool this Inhabition, on my way to nowhere
Let's go
We fall down, come elate me Come elate me, we fall down
We fall down, come elate me Come elate me, we fall down
We are following the way, following the way
We all rattle in the same... rattle in the same way
We fall down, come elate me Come elate me, we fall down
We fall down, come elate me Come elate me, we fall down
- What's good? What the fuck is up, South by? We're ASTR.
Let's do this shit.
"Hush, don't stop," were the words you told me
Bloodshot eyes, never saw it coming
It's just the love, believe it I'm wide awake, done dreaming
Up all night
Because we broke all the rules Love burning down the walls
And everything we do Fly, but we never fall
Now it doesn't mean a thing at all Flying higher than we've been before
Now we're riding on a shooting star Going out like a cannonball
Fall in, so deep Never been afraid to forget it all
Now we're riding on a shooting star Going out like a cannonball
Midnight drive Wanna feel your heartbeat
Sunset smile We could do it our way
We don't need no reason No more lies worth keeping
Don't look back
Because we broke all the rules Love burning down the walls
And everything we do Fly, but we never fall
Now it doesn't mean a thing at all Flying higher than we've been before
Now we're riding on a shooting star Going out like a cannonball
Fall in, so deep Never been afraid to forget it all
Now we we're riding on a shooting star Going out like a cannonball
Now it's all right, it's all right And you can think it's all right, it's all
right And you can say it's all right it's all right
And if you think it's all right, it's all right
Then we could get it Then we could get it
Then we could get it Then we could get it
Now it doesn't mean a thing at all Flying higher than we've been before
Now we're riding on a shooting star Going out like a cannonball
Fall in, so deep Never been afraid to forget it all
Now we we're riding on a shooting star Going out like a cannonball
Then we could get it Then we could get it
Then we could get it
- Fuck yeah.
Thank you.
You ready? Bad dreams, in blue Hawaii Palm trees, can set your mind free
Beach palm, club kids beside me Black hole, nowhere to find me
And the stars are in the sky And we wonder where we lie
Wash away in paradise We're so gone, we're so
We're so gone
Fresh meat, in my new condo Mixed drinks, in my Dorado
Blow hard, hood-rich casino Pack your lipstick-libido
And the stars are in the sky And we wonder where we lie
Wash away in paradise We're so gone, we're so
We're so gone We're so gone
We're so gone We're so gone
We're so gone, yeah
We're so... We're so...
And the stars are in the sky And we wonder where we lie
Wash away in paradise We're so gone, we're so
We're so gone We're so gone
We're so gone
- Fuck yeah.
It's getting hot, it's getting sweaty.
But I guess that's right for it's South by.
Fucking Texas.
300, what's up? Shout-outs to my label, 300.
We love you.
Let's get it.
Used to think we had it all Used to think that we could rule the world
Now your power fills my lungs Always thought we'd be unbreakable
And your heart beats close to mine We could never let go
Now you're calling out my name But I can't hear it at all
But how did we get so high? But how did we get so high?
Never learned to say goodbye Never found a way to let it go
Couldn't look you in the eye Had a hold on me I didn't know
And these chemicals rush in And the colors collide
And now all we believe in Only matters inside
But how did we get so high? But how did we get so high?
Tell me how did we get Tell me how did we get
Tell me how did we get Tell me how did we get so high
Tell me how did we get Tell me how did we get
Tell me how did we get Tell me how did we get so high
You were running away, got me running in circles
We both know I was You were running away, got me running in
circles
But how did we get so high? But how did we get so high?
How did we get so high?
Tell me how did we get Tell me how did we get
Tell me how did we get Tell me how did we get so high
Tell me how did we get Tell me how did we get
Tell me how did we get Tell me how did we get so high
- Thank you, guys.
Operate, operate, oh Operate, operate, oh
Baby, come let your head down I don't want to know what you did before
Baby, come let your head down Every little thing that you're looking for
The war you started The lines are forming
Call me the doctor Make me the doctor
Follow the lights down And I'll be the one, I'll be the one
Operate, operate, oh Operate, operate, oh
Baby, don't let your head down I don't want to hear what you say no more
Baby, don't let your head down Anything you want, I could take you for
Oh, oh, but not the falling Oh, oh, the love you wanted
Call me the doctor Make me the doctor
Follow the lights down And I'll be the one, I'll be the one
Operate, operate, oh Operate, operate, oh
Heal in the tired sea Broken, your lies set free
Now that it's time to leave Don't say a prayer for me
Follow the lights down And I'll be the one, I'll be the one
Operate, operate, oh Operate, operate, oh
Operate, operate, oh Operate, operate, oh
- Hell yeah.
Thank you, guys.
You're so dope.
This is so cool, South by.
Like, we expect all these new people, but you all know the words, and I'm impressed.
That is cool.
I'm so happy to be here with you guys.
Thank you.
Thank you for coming.
If you're ever in New York, you're our friends.
New York, come, chill with us.
Blind by your prism love We were caught in a reckless flame
And the lies told we can't take back now We almost had it all
But now we're left in chains
Oh, we started a war There's no turning back
Heartbeats full of fire Now we're caught up in emotion
Cut me with your lies Now we're never gonna slow down
We keep bleeding love We keep bleeding love
Caught in your line of fire Had a hold and I can't escape
Put me down with your cruel desire The writing's on the wall, but we're too
blind to see
Oh, we started a war There's no turning back
Heartbeats full of fire Now we're caught up in emotion
Cut me with your lies Now we're never gonna slow down
We keep bleeding love We keep bleeding love
Gone, and I can't breathe We could, we could run
We could, we could
Every little thing we hold But we can't leave
We could, we could run We could, we could
Heartbeats full of fire Now we're caught up in emotion
Cut me with your lies Now we're never gonna slow down
We keep bleeding love We keep bleeding love
- Thank you guys so much, you're the shit.
We're ASTR.
Stay up.
Until next time.
So much love.
