SXSW 2009 Lawn Party Film Series # 2

Back in March, Other Music and Dig For Fire got together to throw our second annual South By Southwest Lawn Party, with a ton of our favorite bands playing on the rolling lawns of Austin's French Legation Museum. It's been a few months since SXSW but the films still feel fresh, and all eight episodes can be viewed on the video-streaming site, Babelgum, who also sponsored our party. Here's the second film in the series, which features a rousing performance from Efterklang and a truly pastoral appearance from Fleet Foxes' J Tillman.

While you can stream all of the episodes on Other Music Digital, you can also click to watch invidual song highlights from: A Hawk and a Hacksaw, Army Navy, Asa, Benjy Ferree, Cause Co-Motion!, Cursive, Dent May, Efterklang, Laura Gibson, J. Tillman, Marnie Stern, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, Pete and the Pirates, Rebecca Gates, Telekinesis, The Tallest Man on Earth, The Thermals, These Are Powers, Thomas Function, Viking Moses, Virgin Forest, Wavves.

We'd also like to invite you to check out Dig For Fire and Babelgum's new music series Road Trippin' With Ice Cream Man. This episode takes place in Chicago, where we catch up with A Band of Horses backstage at Lollapalooza, who take improvisation one step further, breaking into the never-before-performed "Modelo," complete with a beer-bottle orchestra accompaniment.
