I started my TTMR adventure on Saturday with Castro, the family band formed by American Idol alum Jason Castro and his siblings Michael and Jackie. The band is the perfect spring and summer band, with a pop/folk vibe (a la The Lumineers) and honest, intimate lyrics. […]
The band didn’t just play, though. They performed. […]
And those songs! […] The Castros have distinct vocals, but somehow each song sounded like a “Castro” song. The trio were also super personable and took the time after the show to shake hands and take dozens of snapshots with fans.
To read the parts I elided, not to mention the recap of the rest of the event, hop on over to PlanoMagazine.com (where you can also see the photo above full size). And keep scrolling down, because there are lots more photos at the bottom of the article!

In which there is a zit. Also there is lipstick (and other contents of Jackie’s purse), a to-do list, traveling (hi, Betsy!), and–hurrah!–some actual backstage at SXSW! (No, we do not get to hear Castro perform. Maybe next time?)
Castrocopia is run entirely by a couple of misfits. Although McLovin, Liz Lemon, and REReader are in the back pocket of the Castros, it should not be inferred that this site is sanctioned by the Castros. Tolerated, yes. Loved, who wouldn't? Our words are our own and we stick by them.
