SXSW - Friday Day, March 17, 2006

So we got up really early because we'd heard that Neil Young was going to make a surprize appearance at the KGSR radio show breakfast that had been happening every morning during SXSW. We got there at 7:00 and found a bit of real estate, and waited. I'll save you suspense and tell you that Neil Young was a no show.
Lyle Lovett was there as a guest weather man and the morning's headlining performer.

The show opened with Rocco Deluca, who I liked. This was followed by Gemma Hays, and the amazing KT Tunstall who's like a little one girl band.

Governor of Texas hopeful Kinky Friedman made an appearance as well. Kinky is everywhere. Kinky is everything. Kinky is everybody. Kinky is still the King.

Sure there was no Neil Young, but there was a great performance by Lyle Lovett, Joe Ely, and Rodney Crowell.

Home for a nap, spent an insane amount of time(and thankfully not money) at Flatstock and then the NXNE party at Caswell House.
Barb took this photo of Cuff The Duke.
