Tim Easton @ SXSW (part one)

Tim Easton's performance was awesome. I don't know what else to say. He plays an incredibly lively guitar, and at one point I think he whistled into the harp, creating an eerie harmony. I think "Next To You" is a particularly beautiful performance.

During the festival, Tim had an exhibition of hand-painted record jackets for his new album PORCUPINE at the Yard Dog Gallery. If you missed it, you can read about it online. Apparently there are like 500 of them. This is the first half of his set: "Broke My Heart" is from PORCUPINE, which will be released on April 28th on New West Records; "Next To You" is from his last release, AMMUNITION.
