My good friends in The Swamp Bats played a great acoustic set at Fado Irish Pub in downtown Austin last Friday night. I made the trip into town by way of bus since I'm not crazy about driving into the downtown area on weekend nights. Since I was on the bus schedule, I only got to catch about an hour of the guys' set. It would have been nice to stay all night. A Swamp Bats show is always a fun yet passionate performance by some of the most talented guys I know. In addition to the core band you never know who you'll see come up on stage as band leader Steve Klotz is fond of calling up other musicians he sees in the crowd to join in or lead a number. A love of music and sharing it with friends is how they do it in the swamp.
