The Slip’s SXSW
Brad Barr with Big Light
The Slip, recently recharged as of late, took the stage this weekend at Austin’s SXSW music conference. The trio performed at the club Shangri-La, offering a short set that mixed a few new originals with Eisenhower tracks “Paper Birds,” “Children of December” and “Soft Machine.” The trio recently recorded some songs for a forthcoming studio project.
After his set with the Slip, guitarist Brad Barr sat in with Big Light at a private event held in a suite in Austin’s Hilton Hotel. Barr joined the band for the Big Light original “Peace together Wings.” The industry-heavy audience included the likes of John Popper, Talking Heads’ Jerry Harrison, DJ Logic, Andrew Barr, The Mother Hips and Papa Mali, among others.
