SXSW: The "Super Bloody Mary Jam" at Red Eyed Fly

If the bands at All Star Austin's "Super Bloody Mary Jam" Thursday afternoon at the Red Eyed Fly had been as good as the free Bloody Marys, I might have stayed longer. Shortly after the free booze ran out, so did my patience. The lead singer of L.A.'s Castledoor belongs in a boy band. J. Tillman is talented, if a bit of a one-note.
