If you are a music fan and have spent any time online this week you undoubtedly have seen many of the dispatches from SXSW. I actually ended one of my recent conversations about the music festival by saying “hashtag SXSW.” Highlights for me included watching Bruce Springsteen’s Keynote Address and seeing the return of the enchanting Fiona Apple. But besides seeing some of the big stars at SXSW, I always enjoy following the many great Chicago bands that are playing at the festival. One of my favorite local records of 2011 was Want More by JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound. They are playing a show at Metro on Friday, April 27th with Gold Motel and you can now check out their terrific set from SXSW (Skip Ahead to 4:22:15) below:
And Gapers Block has an excellent SXSW Tour Diary from JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound. You can find that here.
