The Highlight Of alt512's SXSW -- Mark Jungers & Chris Wall

For all of the great things about SXSW and the secret shows and secret musical guests and everything else that we all love about the madness of SXSW, there are still shows and events that manage to fly under the radar and have low, however enthusiastic support. I'll cite the Twangfest show at Jovita's on Thursday as example one, South By Sam's Town Point as example two and this show as example three.

Mark Jungers has been hosting a weekly Americana Song Swap at Patsy's Cowgirl Cafe. Previous guests have included Adam Carroll and Houston Marchman. The Thursday of SXSW week (March 19th) it was Chris Wall's turn to swap some tunes with Mark. Chris Wall has been a favorite of the folks here at alt512 for a long, long time and we were charged up to see Chris play as he hasn't been playing regularly the last few years.

Chris pulled some great old songs out of his bag as well as a few new/newer songs to share with the eager yet sparse crowd. Early candidate for show of the year....
