KCRW at South by Southwest
After a morning stop for a few live sets, I gathered my official SXSW music badge and visited the offices of C3 – the folks behind Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza. I got a sneak peak into some new music, including a country-style collaboration between Heartless Bastards singer Erika Wennerstrom and the Black Angels.
My next musical adventure was the IFC/Crossroads party featuring Gomez and Decemberists. Gomez is always a dependable live band and they did not disappoint. The UK lads played some brand new tracks and some old favorites like “See the World,” as well as a song they played during their first SXSW set 11 years ago. They ended with a super jam on “How We Operate.” They pretty much have three frontmen and the dynamic switches seamlessly between them. I’m excited to hear their new album!
Time to hit the hay, more later...
