The Billy Reid/K-Swiss SXSW Shindig kicked off the music portion of the festival Wednesday at the Swan Dive, a newly opened venue in Austin that recalls a 1920s speakeasy. It wasn’t long before the venue reached capacity and the room took on the convivial bedlam of the Jazz Age.

Inside The Billy Reid Shindig w/ Hayes Carll, Civil Wars, & Jessica Lea Mayfield
It’s so easy to hate on South By Southwest…Too big, too corporate, too much, too too too…And it’s true, kind of. But not really…
Check out Holly Gelason’s blog on the SXSW Billy Reid K-Swiss Shindig featuring Jessica Lea Mayfield, Hayes Carll, The Civil Wars, Caitlin Rose, Jason Isbell, The Apache Relay, Keegan Dewitt & The Romany Rye.
SXSW Preview: The Romany Rye
The best place to hear The Romany Rye – where their fresh and vibrant but deeply rooted music comes alive on analog tape – is the Daytrotter session released last April. Here, sepia-toned tunes like “Brother” present a cross section of Laurel Canyon history – think early ‘70s Neil Young meets Jenny Lewis’ “Acid Tongue.”
The Romany Rye’s founding member, Luke MacMaster, is a native of Big Bear, California, which is about halfway (and a little north) between L.A. and Joshua Tree. He recorded and released his debut album, Highway 1, Looking Back Carefully, with Delta Spirit’s Kelly Winwrich, then went on tour with both Delta Spirit and fellow Cali country rock outfit Dawes last year.
