Iggy and the Stooges came, they saw and they conquered Austin’s South by Southwest Wednesday night (March 13). The band, who are currently ramping up to the release of their ‘Ready to Die’ album, played both new songs and classics at Austin’s Mohawk club.

According to Rolling Stone, the night provided a showcase for Iggy and the Stooges to work in some of their new ‘Ready to Die’ material with well-vetted classics like ‘Raw Power,’ ‘Search and Destroy’ and ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog.’

Upon offering up the recently streamed ‘Burn,’ Rolling Stone reports that frontman Iggy Pop told the audience that the song was “about scary s— like the flaming a–holes of the world and death.” He added that the track was the perfect example of why people like himself should never have guns. The group also used the occasion to trot out the title track from their upcoming disc as well.

After the title track, Iggy and the Stooges completed the body of their show with ‘No Fun,’ then returned for a well-received encore of ‘Fun House.’ The ‘Ready to Die’ album drops April 30 via Fat Possum Records. You can pre-order the disc right here.
