Abra Moore - SXSW, 18th Floor at Hilton Garden Inn, 3/14/08
But wait, day three wasn't quite ready to call it day after Virginia Coalition, when the Hilton's rooftop venue was but an elevator ride away, and Abra Moore scheduled to go on at midnight. Abra played acoustic guitar along with a guitarist who played an acoustic that sounded electric which gave the set a slow and sort of moody sound.
Abra also had a horn player who added some jazziness to the spaciness, and her vocal style seemed well suited to this sort of musical framework. The rooftop venue is a very comfortable bar and lounge located on the top floor of the Hilton Garden Inn and has huge windows that afford and beautiful view of Austin by night, a nice place to chill as the day winds down.
