SXSW Review - NY Times - 3/20/06

Musicians in Search of Discovery

Published: March 20, 2006

At times, SXSW can be like a musical museum — a good one. One ambitious program brought together a full night of minimalists who had a direct impact on rock, including Tony Conrad and Rhys Chatham, whose group included Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. Another, organized by the musical archivists beyond the Ponderosa Stomp, included Barbara Lynn from Beaumont, Tex. She sang her R&B hits from the 1960's with soulful authority while plucking fierce, twangy leads on her left-handed electric guitar. Austin's beloved Roky Erickson, who led that city's top 1960's psychedelic band the 13th Floor Elevators, was back after years of being known as an acid casualty. He performed all around town with a strong voice, a steady hand on the rhythm guitar, a vociferous band and songs that still stomp their old blend of blues-rock and free association.
