GIG REVIEW: POP DOSE - SXSW Day Two
3/16/2013

America(na)’s Favorite Indie Record Label

We split and stumbled upon something really great. It was an outdoor party by the New West Records label at Threadgills, a restaurant built on the site of the old Armadillo World Headquarters and run by some of the same people. New West showed off some old and new members of its artists' roster.

More great guitar work came next, from one of the greatest guitarists ever. Richard Thompson, who many people feel could be second greatest British rock guitar player, played tunes from his new Electric. And electric they were - from the Celtic stomp of "Sally B" to the rocking "Good Things Happen To Bad People," to the just great tunes "Salford Sunday" and "Stoney Ground."

Austin is just the place for this all to happen for New West. The label has a very successful series, "Live in Austin TX," which features performances from the venerable TV series "Austin City Limits." Although the time for introducing new performances has run out, New West is reissuing some of the old performances on vinyl and as CD/DVD combo packs.
