SXSW 2012 - Madisons at Betsy's Bar

March 29, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Day five! It's the final stretch.

Before my last official assignment for SXSW kicked off, I went to see Madisons play at Betsy's Bar. I do think I need to remember that this is a photography blog, and not just some forum for me to waffle on about bands that I love. But I do love Madisons so very, very much, so to hell with photo-blog conventions.

Madisons are an excellent indie folk-rock band from right here in Austin. They are currently an eight-piece, although their lineup seems to be continually expanding. I'm half expecting them to be a seventeen-piece by the summer. I could go on and on about the incredibly skilled musicians in the band, the fantastic arrangements, or frontman Dominic Solis' sexy, sexy voice, but I suppose all you need to know is that Madisons write and perform some absolutely cracking tunes. Their Betsy's show was a blast, and the crowd loved them.

Judging from their live set, I don't think there's going to be a single dud track on their new album, which I'm reliably informed will be out within the next few months. Check 'em out!
