Some more from SXSW

Nice picture! (But where’s the bootleg?) (What do you mean, there’s no bootleg?!?!) (If you see any bootleg, let me know, please…)

 
There’s also a really nice review from Jillian Pedersen from Spirit 105.9:

I did hear a clip of their live performance. Their harmonies meld together so perfectly in a way only musically talented siblings are able to do. So, if you’re looking for new music with incredible vocals and encouraging words, look no further than Castro.

 
But of course!

For the rest of the piece, click on the nice clicky link I made for you here.

 
(You know, you could have read this hours ago if you were following Castro on Twitter. I’m just sayin’.)

 
Also! SXSW’s YouTube channel has the “Automatic” video up as “Showcasing Artist 2017”:

A little snippet from Friday night…

Plus there’s this little Facebook Live thing, now taped:

If more bootleg from this show surfaces, it will be posted!

I wanna be at SXSW, too!

(And if you’d only Like/Follow Castro’s Facebook page, you wouldn’t need me to know all this stuff. MAKE IT SO!)

A vlog about a video

(That’s pretty meta, so let’s not think about it too hard, okay?)


Video by Michael Castro

In which there is backstage (so to speak) stuff from the making of the “Automatic” video, which includes motorcycles (you do remember the “Automatic” video, don’t you?), a tractor, serendipity, and a bonfire (you do remember the “Automatic” video, don’t you?).

Also there is a show. (We do not get to see the show.)

 
And also there is food. Throughout.

Anyone gonna be in Tulsa in May?

It's official! The Hop Jam 2017 is coming. Join us on May 21st!

There’s all sorts of info available at the event website; be sure to check out the FAQs. Most important bits? The music is FREE, and open to all. (But the beer part is 21+ and Not Free.) I do like this from their description of Castro:

On Diamond Dreams, they swivel seamlessly between bluesy soul, indie folk, and grandiose pop drama with the poise and effortlessness that only comes with loving each sound too much to abandon it. And while the record may be proudly noncommittal when it comes to genre, there is one mission on which all three siblings agree: making others happy.

 
“Proudly noncommittal” on genre is just exactly right, isn’t it?

 

Thanks for the find, misfit toys!
