RBG @ Recharge Lounge and Love Goat during SXSW 2016 (Wrap-up)
Run By The Gun went to Austin, Texas to perform several shows during the South By South West Music Conference and Festival (SXSW).
The first two shows were at Love Goat on Guadalupe Street. Close to the University of Texas, Guadalupe is one of the most popular stretches for indy showcases in Austin. RBG was ready to go as the sun came down, tearing into a set that featured songs from our current self-titled EP and previous album, Songs From The Little Blue House.
Our third show would take us to the offices of Videotape on Austin’s 6th street. During SXSW, Videotape is transformed into the Recharge Lounge. Hundreds of people flocked to the Lounge looking for a break from the standard SXSW fare. RBG, if anything, is a break from the norm, even by Austin’s standards.
Our last show was an impromptu set at 6th Street’s Trophy Club. The lack of hard rock on 6th street this year opened the door for us to play RBG’s brand of hard, indy rock, sound.
Thank you to The HYPE! For booking our shows, Love Goat, Videotape, and The Trophy Club for letting us play. Big shout out to Cynthia and Will High for letting us crash in their beautiful home for the week.
Until next year, Austin!
