In case you don’t follow me on Twitter or Facebook and weren’t inundated by my constant updating last week, I was in Austin, TX for South by Southwest. I got to see so many of my favorite artists/bands last week. One of the most memorable performances last week was from The Civil Wars. If you don’t know who The Civil Wars is, go to your closest mirror and look at yourself and then give yourself a nice big slap across the face. Haha. Ok, don’t do that, but definitely check them out. Often times, simplicity is best. And that’s exactly what they do. Great guitar pickings and the occasional piano are the backdrop for the incredible harmonies by Joy Williams and John Paul White. Seriously do yourself a favor and pick up their albums. Actually, there’s a 7 song album from one of their SXSW performances on iTunes.
