When Jesse Elliott
let us know that he and his mighty band These United States
would be rolling through the Austin area for a handful of SXSW shenanigans, well...we knew we better hop to it! We of course have been following the trajectory of this DC/Kentucky based ensemble for the better part of the last three years. The idea of throwing them up on our stage in front of our cameras was just too tempting to pass up. So we made some calls, squeezed some arms, and wouldn't you know? The band delivered, giving the rustic confines of the Scoot's old, slightly dilapidated indoor beer bar a nice shake to the tune of a batch of rowdy, southern tinged rock and roll songs.
