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.

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.
