Jimmy Griffin gained new fans during his opening solo set. Audience members were overheard saying “wow, he’s really good,” in several different variations. Jimmy payed homage to KDHX and the golden days of radio with “FM,” a song usually played with his band The Incurables. He performed like a rockstar and graciously thanked Bob Schneider and his hometown of Austin for being such good friends.
Schneider delivered a very different kind of solo performance, spanning his career as well as his many musical genres. He used an orchestra built from a synthesizer, beatbox, trumpet, toy piano and guitar to perform his diverse repertoire of innocent love ballads and graphic sexual anthems. Schneider left no toes untapped and no song request unfulfilled.
