CALEXICO COVERING GUIDED BY VOICES

Sxsw_calexico
What a hoot! Calexico was one of many GBV cover highlights.

We didn't see much music at South By Southwest – and yet we did. The 7th Annual Guided By Voices Hoot Night was a sampling of 30 acts playing SXSW, all playing GBV covers. That's like a festival within a festival. Several bands I'd never heard of blew me away. Bands I was familiar with delivered beyond what I expected, namely Jason Faulkner, The Silos, Apollos of Sunshine and Calexico. Here, resplendent with horns and bad sound, is Calexico covering "Non-Absorbing."

Here's a couple pics of THE BOB. He came out with two different bands and sang, "I Am a Scientist," "Chasing Heather Crazy," and a couple of other songs I forget.

Thanks! I was in Austin Thursday night, but didn't make the Hoot Nite (choosing a couple of other shows instead).
