DALLAS MORNING NEWS (blog), SXSW: Barbara Lynn still rockin'

I certainly got plenty of exercise on Friday night. After my stop at the Elephant Room, I decided to check out the Ponderosa Stomp at Opal Divine's, even if it meant walking yet another nine blocks to go back.

I wasn’t sure what to think when I got there and saw a band dressed in bright colored, bejeweled costumes with feathers and patchwork pictures of Native Americans. It was the Flaming Arrows Mardi Gras Indians with Big Chief Roddy of the Black Eagles. This New Orleans band jammed so hard, you soon forgot their peculiar attire.

But Beaumont's Barbara Lynn easily stole the show with her set that followed. I watched with awe and pride as this 65-year-old blues singer fired up her guitar and blasted the crowd with “Oh, Baby (We got a Good Thing Going)” and her 1962 hit “You'll Lose a Good Thing." Then she lit a fire under the crowd with smoking performances of James Brown’s "Please, Please, Please" and Ray Charles' "What'd I Say." In the words of Chris Vognar, I can go home now.
