Music Day 2: The Donkeys

One of the obvious benefits and pleasures of SXSW is stumbling across enjoyable bands while you’re waiting to see someone else. Today, it was the Donkeys, who were making their SXSW debut. I can’t speak for the record, but live, they offered up some classic, chiming guitar pop with an amiability that brought to mind a band like Guster. The drummer had, by his own admission, overdone it the night before, but like a pro, he soldiered on. Some confusion resulted when they reached the end of the set sooner than expected, but they managed to wrangle one more song out of the soundman.
