SXSW 2010: Smith Westerns

March 18th, 2010

Episode 217 of 426 episodes

The songs of the young Chicago band are, unmistakably, the guttural outpourings of raucous adolescents. But the group's members have talent well beyond their years, as well as an undeniable gift for writing rousing, sneakily infectious rock. The band performs as part of NPR Music's South By Southwest daytime party at The Parish in Austin, Texas, on March 18, 2010.
