With only two earnest SXSW Music nights left, and an overstuffed head of unforgettable memories and music, I set out with a now insatiable appetite for more. More venues, more music, more Austin, as much as possible, as much as I could live; the unfortunate end to the sheer dreamlike sequence I'd been savoring was looming.
At the end of the third night of Twangfest, I was surprised the building was still in one piece. Luckily for the Duck Room, the structure is made from the same hard substances that has kept so many St. Louis buildings standing for so many years -- brick, old stone and concrete.
The energy in the Duck Room Friday night was barely containable. The room nearly exploded due to some crowd surfing, off-stage singing, a double encore, and other shenanigans.
Twangfest 16 continued at the Duck Room Thursday night with a diverse lineup of crowd favorites.
