    I went straight for the Sarah Borges because they were my fav. last year. Thanks to everyone at KRCC for pulling that performance off. If some recorded form of that performance exists i’d like to hear it (maybe as a premium before the spring drive;) Thanks also re: NPR @ SXSW. I’m looking a plane tix to Austin right now. (SB&BS plays 4 shows next week)

    Very cool! I would encourage everyone to check out Elephant Revival, an awesome CO band: http://www.elephantrevival.com/

    FYI Matt: That recording of Sarah Borges is from Meadowgrass. Sound isn’t the best on it because it had to be moved indoors, but we’ll see what we can do.
