In the midst of all the chaos that is Austin, Texas during the SXSW Music Festival, we seek moments of calm. And so one night, as the week was nearing its end, we made our way to the courtyard of St. David's Episcopal Church, just a few blocks from the thousands of festival participants and onlookers. There we found a trickling garden-side waterfall, where Katie Crutchfield and Kevin Morby performed "Downtown's Lights," from Kevin Morby's recent album, City Music.
Katie Crutchfield and Kevin Morby have worked together on a string of recent collaborations, including a cover of the Velvet Underground's "After Hours" and a two-song homage to Jason Molina. "Downtown's Lights" is a song of comfort and prayer for someone who is down and out in the city, and this version, with Katie singing — and the sounds of the city echoing in the background — is wistful and peacefully perfect.
Our thanks to St. David's Episcopal Church for the use of their garden.
