SXSW: Trampled By Turtles

SXSW: Trampled By Turtles



I'm not entirely sold on Trampled by Turtles, the five man power bluegrass band from Duluth, Minnesota - Bob Dylan's birthplace - with the amusing name. (Perhaps not as amusing as Gay For Johnny Depp, who also played SXSW on Wednesday, but amusing nonetheless.) Impressively percussive fast picking style - you keep looking for the drummer, and then you realize there isn't one. But I'll hold on to my Bill Monroe and Del McCoury records for now, thank you. I do really like this Legends of Country Music mural that the guys in TBT were playing in front of at the Paste party at the Sixth street Stage on Wednesday, though. That's the second disembodied sighting of Ray Benson's image this week.
