The music began with Leeann who sang some welcome songs, earlier than Ben Jones entered the stage. He performed a wonderful solo set. He will get higher and higher, and shortly somebody should uncover his skills (apart from Brian Wilson, who has used him and Andrea Magee in his band these days).

My favourite band this present day was Madam Radar, who got here after the Texas String Meeting. They’re a four-piece band, and I’ve seen the electrical model of the band at The Saxon Pub.

Jon Langford is a daily at SXSW along with his totally different bands, The Wacos, The Jon Langford Band, generally The Mekons and often another. His reveals with these bands are nice, punkish, and with numerous humour. This yr I noticed him on the Yard Canine occasion, that was held at AGBG, and in an acoustic model at Leeann’s Picnic.

Perhaps this format is the longer term for the Barn Dance, because it doesn’t contain so heavy logistics, and needs to be much less bothersome for these neighbors that doesn’t like individuals having enjoyable with good music the Sunday after SXSW?
