Well. Technically, the Happy Easter greetings were not so much belated as I am posting these belatedly.*
And then there is this service at Lake Pointe Church. (Jason’s solo is at about 10:30.)
*Because it was also Passover and I was offline, okay?
Thanks for tracking this all down, Jasonized!
(See what I did there?)
YAY, A TOUR!
Which (first of all) was the first in a cluster of shows:
Then there’s about half an hour of a Facebook chat–thank you, Jackie!–from backstage:
And isn’t this the cutest thing ever?:
(You really should get to one of their live shows!)
Yes, that’s accurate–they are indeed about to break!:
And you want to be sure to follow that link and watch the whole vid, it’s great!

In which there are parties, and Castro practice (yay!), and there is a Castro show (but we do not get to see the show at all), and there is another Castro show (but we do not get to see the show), and that is all there is about SXSW.
…and they have a very careful recap of the event. Starting with:

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!
ETA: Oh, don’t leave yet! Check out the mag’s recap video–I’m liking the soundtrack especially:

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?)
And also food.
