Esben and the Witch SXSW Blog: Day Four

Esben and the Witch's indefatigable trio of Daniel Copeman, Thomas Fisher and Rachel Davies has been poetically and visually documenting their SXSW experiences - the good, the bad and the ugly - for The Alternate Side. The powerful, Goth-touched band, which recently released their startling debut Violet Cries on Matador Records, play their last SXSW show today, March 19, the all-star Mess With Texas party at 2:40 p.m. CDT at 6th and San Marcos Streets.

Close call,
Dead dog,
Medicine measures.
Blue walls, trash cans.
Respite, plastic air.
Generous measures.
Plasters? BANDAIDS.
Plastic grass, tiny flamingos.
Bus queue.
Roll out.
