We are in Austin this week for the Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Conference (SWRFA).  It's always a great time and we get to see lots of our old and new friends.  There are three open-to-the-public events:  the kick-off open mic at Threadgill's New Old No. 1 on North Lamar Wednesday 9/23, and the two official showcase concerts Friday and Saturday evenings at the Radisson Austin North.  We aren't playing an official showcase this year (we were official showcase artists last year so we have to wait two years to do it again) but we are playing several unofficial showcases.  Your ticket to the official showcase concert gets you into the unofficial showcase rooms where there is so darn much music you wouldn't believe.  Artists usually do 15-20 minutes sets.  Definitely a great way to see lots of live music up close and personal.    Check the "Upcoming Shows" section on the right to see where we are playing our showcase sets, and go see lots of the other great musicians at SWRFA.
