TVD Live at SXSW: Kasabian at Stubb’s, 3/13

SXSW Interactive ended last night, and the music portion of the legendary event kicked off in high style at Stubb’s BBQ. Kasabian played to an at-capacity crowd, and they sounded better than ever.

The show was absolutely incredible. It begs the question why Kasabian play arenas in their home country of England when they are still only able to fill theaters stateside. There is a disconnect, but it wasn’t apparent at this show.

Showcasing tracks from their last three records, these Brits showed how to mix elements of Oasis and the Jesus and Mary Chain with a T. Rex-style blast of high energy rock ‘n’ roll. The clear highlight of the night, though, was when the band revisited their now-classic self-titled first album and blew the crowd away with “Clubfoot,” which I consider the band’s defining moment. Clearly one of the finest live bands around today, I would see these guys live every day if I could. Check out the photos below and stay tuned for more updates from here in Austin!
