Band of Horses

"You know, it's funny," Bridwell said by phone. "I get here and I'm staying at this fancy hotel and it's two blocks away from this parking lot, now a vacant parking lot, that they used to have Ryder trucks on -- a rental place. And I used to actually sleep on those trucks. I'd get thrown out of the truck at 6 a.m. in my sleeping bag. It's just funny. It's two blocks away and I'm now on the balcony of this big hotel. I'm a bit reflective." [Daily Freeman]

Back before Psych Fest but after Coacella (which they played), Band of Horses came through Austin on 4/24 for a big, sold out show with Roadkill Ghost Choir. The once homeless Ben Bridwell sang Happy Birthday to Willie Nelson and band tore through around 20 songs including a Jason Molina cover. Check out the full setlist with more pictures from the show below...
