William Elliott Whitmore
    Saturday March 17, 2012 11:00pm - 11:30pm @ Cedar Street Courtyard (208 W 4th St)

    From Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle:

    Cedar Street's substreet courtyard is the perfect venue for this annual hell-raisin' picnic, which mixes its namesake's Memphis guitar skronk with such brethren acts as Tennessee revivalists Star & Micey's stripped-down stomp 'n' holler. Follow that with a straight shot of the Kneiser sibs' soaring harmonies, and you've got Glossary's anthemic "Long Live All of Us." Can we get an amen? "Hell yes," sayeth Baltimore badasses J Roddy Walston & the Business, dive-bar sinner-saints with raw, red roadhouse heart to spare. William Elliott Whitmore's cracked and crackling vox and sorrowful solo guitar recall the Iowan lands he hails from. Hot Water Music's former punk-rock balladeer Chuck Ragan returns with glorious new album Covering Ground (SideOneDummy), right before this shindig picks it all up, sets it alight, and goes off with a Lucero-sized bang. The longtime rockers drop new LP Women & Work this very week, which, alongside Ben Nichols' trademark raggedy man yowl and Brian Venable's alt.country-punk gee-tar, sort of sums up all of SXSW, doncha think? Amen to that.
