The group from New York City were standing in hula hoops performing in the middle of the intersection of Sixth and Trinity outside the Chupacabra Cantina Wednesday as the sun was going down on the first night official night of SXSW Music.
The three, well, super cute gals drew a crowd, with people stopping to check out their costumes -– they were all dressed up like sprouting flowers -– then hanging around because the music was so good.
With not one, but two, toy ukeleles in the lead vocalist's hands, the band used a Charlie-Brown-size piano for percussion. The hit smash was 'Candy City,' a song the lead singer said was about drugs and candy, and is sweet and looping enough to be correlated to both.
Supercute! then performed a little number called 'Not to Write About Boys,' which is clearly about, surprise, boys, and proves that maybe the girls aren't all that good at following the rules (an impromptu showcase in downtown Austin certainly makes that an easy conclusion, too).
When they were finished, Supercute! packed up their gear and disappeared into the night, yet another joy of the magic that is SXSW. No word on whether the girls will be playing any more pop-up shows throughout the week. We kind of hope so, though.
