I was on my way somewhere else when I stopped short in front of a bar on Red River.
There was something awfully familiar about the sound issuing from the doors, though it seemed unnatural to hear such a song in daylight. It was music for midnights, at the very earliest. But I had to know.
So I stepped inside, and lo and behold, it was indeed Eugene’s own macabre psychobilly punks The Sawyer Family.
(It’s a hastily snapped iPhone shot; be kind.)
There should have been more people in the bar, but those that were there seemed to be enjoying themselves. (It’s hard to tell how much enjoyment is present in a room full of people who almost certainly haven’t gotten enough sleep and equally almost certainly are already nursing hangovers with hair of the dog.) Seth Sawyer signed off, “We’ll see you fuckers next time.” Hopefully there are more of said fuckers when the band next lands in Austin.
