Jonny Fritz (@dadcountry) Live at the @redbull Sound Select Stage @RedBullATX @SXSW 2013

events, music, Music Conferences

On Sixth Street, I decided to pop into the Red Bull Sound Select Stage and see what was going on. I was supposed to have RSVP-ed, but they were cool about it and let me in with a warning that the next night’s event would be much stricter, and that I should RSVP if I wanted to go. Since it involved the Geto Boys, I definitely wanted to go. But the artist that was on stage this night was a renegade country artist named Jonny Fritz from Nashville, who I wasn’t at all familiar with. His sound was pretty much traditional country, except that the lyrics were rather irreverent and explicit. I hung around for awhile, but country is not my favorite style of music, and ultimately I left.
