The final day of South By Southwest viewed from a foot below:
"It's the end of the tour" Last day. I've already seen so much great music this week, I'm inured and ready to start passing judgment on anyone and everyone. Unfortunately, the spring break crowd is returning tonight, and the clash of the SxSW crowd with the usual Sixth Street bunch is never pretty. Fortunately, there's a number of pleasant and random surprises.
Gina Lee and the Brisket Boys: (Botticelli's) Two-stepping country band, local regulars down at the Broken Spoke. Very funny commentary throughout by the guy on keyboards. Couples are dancing, interrupting lunch service. Very nice.
The view from a foot below continues with this entry from Austin resident, my niece, Kate Wright:
By day three you're the walking dead, and this morning I forgot to drink any water before I left the house. Of course, it was 90 out.
Lightspeed Champion: (Volume) Funky little folk rock trio from Britain playing an impossible number of concerts this week. Lead singer is going to go get a Star Wars tattoo in a few hours, we're invited to watch. Funny argument amongst themselves about which Weezer song they want to cover.
