Sondre Lerche at South by Southwest (SXSW) 2007

Easily the biggest highlight of my South By Southwest 2007 experience was getting to see Sondre Lerche, not one, not two, but three times. One may say, why the repetition, well....

It's a tough world, the real world, especially in this sort of twisted world of indie rock and all the baggage that is associated with it, there's a few that hold firm on principal, he's one of them. Lyrics, his perceptions on life that I've read, and just a most of the time a generally good disposition.

First video taken from Antones, he plays amazing guitars, and for his 45 minute set, he played all his tunes except this one much faster, so he could play more, kudos, high energy and great time.

Then there's the Buffalo Billards afternoon gig, which was actually recorded for a radio show in Minnesota somewhere. When asked the question, 'What have you learned from opening for Elvis Costello?' -- The answer, 'I need to get out of the music industry' --- sad but true answer....a very smart lad. Super Sweet sunshine song :)
