Last night was teen angst night at SXSW. At least, that's what it felt like. Everywhere we went we heard distorted guitars and screaming kids. Nothing subtle. Nothing inventive. Quite depressing. We ended up hearing the Jayhawks
at the end of the night. Their vocal harmonies were impressive. Roger McGuinn
joined them for one song, too, which was a nice surprise. He came out with his trademark rickenbacker
guitar and sang a tune. It wasn't one of my favorite psychedelic byrds songs like I was hoping -- but still great. Tonight I'm hoping to see Gomez
at La Zona Rosa. solid.
