Hangups and more at SXSW

I was a bit too busy with what was going on here in Minneapolis this past weekend to keep up with the events transpiring at SXWS as much as I would have liked to, but now that folks are pretty much returning to town, more retrospectives are starting to trickle in.

Kate Galloway sent this photo of the Hangups performing at the Blender Magazine party in Austin.

None other than Trampoline Records head honcho Pete Yorn was filling in on drums at this gig. The Hangups Brian Tighe told me the event was "A total blast! Great audience, great players." Tighe also told me that The Lilys who hail from Philadelphia, were simply amazing.

Dana Thompson sent me a rather low resolution photo of Minnie Driver from the same party that she took from her camera phone that she was taken while leaning on Art Alexakis from Everclear.
