Just Pushing the Darkness Around

We saw Shearwater at the Mowhawk last night. It. was. awesome. They are by far my favorite Austin band (a dangerous thing to say, I know). But.

Not only do their songs hold up live, many of them exceed the CD recordings.

(You can scroll though the minute of commentary. This was the best recording I could find)

So, to sum things up, Shearwater is awesome. I would be incoherent to go into detail about that.

Side Notes:

September is a good month to see shows outside.

A man we noticed in the crowd looked like he'd probably just been released from prison. He had on bright orange pants, a sleeveless button down shirt, and really long hair. Turns out, he is a member of Shearwater. Sorry guy.

Austin is always good for people watching. Ex-cons, transvestites, those with extremely unusual personal taste...or, to be more succinct, musicans.

16oz. Lonestars mean buy 3 get 1 free. Now there is a recession-proof beer. Also, if you're lucky, they will give you some land.
