With my Google Reader having been clogged with SXSW posts all week, I’ve sort of half-heartedly slogged my way through. It’s never very fun reading about a festival you aren’t attending, unless there’s something remarkable or noteworthy. And endless photos and setlists of bands that play every festival anyway hardly seem newsworthy. But Echo & The Bunnymen’s appearance at Austin’s legendary Emo’s club definitely caught my eye. In this fortunate YouTube find, the band rips through the title track off its debut record from 1979 with extra aggression. Frontman Ian McCulloch wore a heavy black coat and sunglasses at 1am in Texas. Love it.
