The Goondas are halfway through their March residency at the 501 Club. I was hoping to check out their set, but an impending early morning cut my night short. I did get to take a few quick shots of Hastings 3000 (Joe Hastings of FuKn), who opened.
These guys played at Vita.mn’s Are You Local SXSW Send-Off.
Hey! Look! It’s a photo of Wilco! I took this photo with my pocket-digi from the balcony at the DECC. A friend and I drove up to Duluth to see these guys a few weeks ago and it. was. EPIC. :) We listened to good tunes, stopped at a pawn shop, explored D-Town, hit up The Electric Fetus and Pizza Lucé, had dinner at the revolving restaurant (where, by the way, the sun began to set as we sat down to eat which made for some lovely vistas throughout our meal), and, of course, saw Wilco at the DECC.
The Avett Brothers played First Ave and it was one of the best shows I’ve been to in a good long while. The boys gave a joyful and exuberant performance that I found delightful.
(I wasn’t going to bring my camera out with me but decided at the last minute that I might regret not having it, and boy am I glad there was no policy prohibiting photos this night. This is essentially a collection of snapshots; I stood in the same spot for the duration of the show and didn’t have to do much to get these shots.)
Updated to add: Eric Bass posted a few videos from the show on his blog.
