January in Texas means one thing: SXSW is close at hand. Now the big event doesn’t happen until March but it’s not too early to begin getting ready for the annual craziness in Austin.
For us, one of the perennial fixtures of SXSW is singer/actor/raconteur Michael Des Barres. The former Power Station singer and “MacGyver” TV bad guy has shown up and played in Austin more times than we can count – although we’ve missed him the past two years. But he’s a sure bet to make a reappearance on South Congress or one of the backwaters of SXSW this year.
So, to kick off the anticipation, here’s “You’re My Pain Killer” from Michael’s latest CD, Carnaby Street.
