Bug Music Showcase – SXSW Austin, TX

In the rather small Cedar Street Courtyard, the fine people at Bug Music presented their SXSW showcase with performances by Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles, Exene Cervenka, Jimmie Vaughan, The American Bang and Buddy Miller.

While Sarah Borges stole the stage with her honky-tonk twang and rockabilly spunk, the upset of the night came when the legendary Jimmie Vaughan (along with Lou Ann Barton who had joined him for most of his set) was literally forced from the stage by the house music as the audience begged for more. He gracefully accepted facts and waved goodbye, even though the show was running ahead of schedule.

Closing the evening after The American Bang (a rock band that did not seem to fit with the rest of the acts) was Buddy Miller, along with not-so-surprise guest Patty Griffin. As the two are gearing up for a tour in support of Patty’s new record, Downtown Church, the set gave them an opportunity to work out some harmonies on some of Buddy’s material like “Shelter Me,” “Wide, Wide River to Cross” and the searing “Gasoline and Matches.”
