Tunesday With George: SXSW Recap

This installment of Tunesday is dedicated to Jason Molina of Magnolia Electric Co., who passed away over the weekend. R.I.P.
SXSW Recap
As always, SXSW was a whirlwind and a blur this year. We had upwards of 17 artists performing down in Austin, and put on two parties and two showcases. So needless to say...we were busy.
But that said, I was still able to catch a few good bands outside of our own. Here is a list of everything I saw and liked throughout the week, in order of appearance:

Ivan & Alyosha

Ronnie Fauss
Lilly Hiatt & The Dropped Ponies
White Violet
Daniel Romano (4X)

Grandfather Child
New Madrid (2X)
Austin Lucas
Corb Lund
Buddy Miller & Jim Lauderdale (3X)
John Hiatt (2X)
Richard Thompson (2X)
Max Gomez (2X)
The Devil Makes Three (2X)
Quiet Corral

Caitlin Rose
Jonny Fritz
Allen Stone
Patty Griffin
Micheala Anne

Swear And Shake
Roadkill Ghost Choir

Moon Taxi
Robert Randolph (feat. Luther Dickinson of North Mississippi Allstars)
Levon Helm Tribute -- Midnight Rambler Band (feat. The Mastersons, Steve Earle, Luther Dickinson, Ivan Neville, J.J. Grey, and more)

I'd say my three major highlights of the week were the Levon Helm tribute at Auditorium Shores, the private Patty Griffin show at The Castle, and the Buddy & Jim set at The Parish.
