The first time I saw Ian Moore was in 2005, and then some years later at the Continental Club. I remember his playing and his extrovert show as something special. This year he played at the Continental Club again during SXSW, at 1 AM the last day of the festival. And it was the perfect artist to close SXSW for me.
This year’s headliners at the Notodden Blues Festival included ZZ Top. The three elderly gentlemen from Texas played at an outdoor venue with a capacity of 10.000 people, and it was packed when the band came on stage.
