Giddy Ups’ Spring Fling 2011 (03/18/2011)

Day 3 and “Girls just wanna……make great music” and make music they did during this day of all girl artists!!  This was the first time for this concept at the Spring Fling.  From what we saw, we’d say it was a huge success.

We wonder how Nancy and her staff manage to keep going.  We’re getting tired and we aren’t at every showcase like they are!! And the musicians!  Wow, some of these talented performers are giving 3, 4, or more, showcases a day…..complete with the travel and traffic between shows.  That’s what the SXSW week is like for even the non-SXSW events.  If you live in Austin, you know what we mean.  If you don’t, visit sometime.  You just can’t understand the scope and excitement this week generates without seeing it for yourself.

(The bands we saw were: Yvette Landry, Amanda Pearcy, Ali Holder & The Train Robbin’ Whiskey, Ruby Dee & The Snakehandlers, Mary Battlata, Tracy Lynn, Quenby & The West of Wayland Band)
