As we posted on Wednesday, My Morning Jacket played SXSW at the Austin Music Hall on Thursday. NPR was there to broadcast the show live and WFPK simulcast it for us to hear locally. I stayed up and pressed record to capture the show for all to enjoy the sweet new sounds of 8 new songs from the upcoming release "Evil Urges". Below you will find the setlist along with a download link for the mp3s and a torrent link for the lossless files. I also recorded the Yo La Tengo and Whigs set and they'll make their way up shortly... Enjoy!

Wed., March 12 (Stubbs)
9 p.m.: Jonathan Rice – Rice strikes a balance between independent and mainstream pop, drawing on the likes of Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, The Band, Joni Mitchell, and Gram Parsons. Further North feels more rough-hewn than the dramatic psychedelic pop of his debut.
10 p.m.: Summerbirds in the Cellar - “The layer-upon-layer-upon-layer rock of Summerbirds in the Cellar’s ethereal vocals, blasting guitar, marching drums, and serene synth lines is enough to make me scream, cry, and bellow into the night, thanking God, Jah, Allah, and Yahweh for the opportunity to bear witness.”- Rolling Stone
11 p.m.: Papercranes - If you’re inclined toward mind-alteration, taking the edge off, stewing in your own juices, there is good news on the music pipeline: A beautiful dose of Gainesville, Florida by way of New York, LA and the Great Beyond. The ambient psychedelic pop of the Papercranes bring on a perfect buzz that will let you operate heavy machinery and explore the dark side without getting drowsy.
12 a.m.: Dead Confederate - Arguably the most sonically powerful act in the burgeoning psychedelia- dosed scene in Atlanta, GA, Dead Confederate may represent a harbinger of a new rise of psychedelic rock. The South has produced some of the most eclectic rock ‘n’ roll ever recorded; James Brown, Stax Records, Allman Brothers and R.E.M. are all products of the mysticism of the South, and Dead Confederate is one of the first southern bands to pull southern rock into the realm of modern music.
1 a.m.: R.E.M. - Accelerate is the fourteenth studio album from R.E.M. and is available on April 1 in the U.S., with an international release on March 31. Join Michael Stipe, Peter Buck and Mike Mills as they broadcast live from Stubbs and share some songs from the new release!
Thurs., March 13 (Austin Music Hall)
9:15 p.m.: The Whigs - A year ago, Rolling Stone called The Whigs “the best unsigned band in America.” With ink like that and the band’s trademark ear-blistering live shows, it wasn’t long before Dave Matthews’ ATO Records took notice and signed the group to a multi-album deal. The Whigs’ first record, Mission Control, has drawn comparisons to both Nirvana and Superchunk. They’ll showcase some of their songs from their latest album.
10:30 p.m.: Yo La Tengo - Indie rock heroes Yo La Tengo are known for confounding expectations with each new album — sometimes it’s organ-based moody pop-rock worthy of Burt Bacharach, sometimes it’s a long, droning, guitar-god freakout. On their best albums, it’s both. Their latest CD lives up to its curious title: I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass.
12:00 a.m.: My Morning Jacket – Louisville’s own live from Austin Music Hall. Maybe we’ll get a sneak listen to some of the music on their new release due in June!

As at least two other photographers from the area have agreed, the pink/red lights at the Germantown bar produces reds in pictures that can't be tamed. I have since decided to make all my Pour Haus shots, black and white, I hope you enjoy.
Some photos are below and the full set is here.
