This year’s SXSW was mired in tragedy and abject corporatism. But Evergreene’s own TriBeCaStan had one of the festival’s finest moments, according to The Wall Street Journal:

“For dedicated fans of rock and pop, SXSW ’14 was rescued by transcendent moments provided by musicians applying their talents … Saturday night, in a program at Russian House that included bands from Argentina, Canada, Israel and the Netherlands, TriBeCaStan, a group of downtown New York musicians, paid tribute to the late jazz trumpeter Don Cherry with a West African-influenced number that featured the hulusi, a Chinese flute. These performances relieved, at least temporarily, the unavoidable conclusion that most musicians might have invested their time more fruitfully in a place where music was the primary focus of attention.”
