Chris Bathgate - SXSW, Emo's Annex, 3/12/08
Emos' Annex is a tent located across Red River Street from the club. Walking by, the sound of Chris Bathgate and his band was so good, we had to stop in to check it out, saw the balance of his set. An obviously talented singer and songwriter from Michigan, Chris' band achieves a really nicely textured sound using acoustic guitar, violin, upright bass, trumpet, trombone, drums, and glockenspeil.
The event was Ioda's Opening Day Bash which included a nice array of Mexican food. A very nice start to the day and the festival.
