Watch At the Drive In’s Surprise SXSW Appearance

After many years of SXSW rumors, legendary El Paso rockers At the Drive In finally put in a surprise appearance last week at the House of Vans SXSW Show at the Mohawk in Austin.

The Cedric Bixler-Zavala led act predominantly focused the 50-minute setlist on material from 2000’s Relationship of Command, which inspired many a stage dive and a few crowd surfs by the singer himself.

New single” Governed by Contagions,” off May’s forthcoming album in•ter a•li•a, was also warmly received by the frenzied festival audience.

Check out some clips below of the show featuring guitarist Keeley Davis on his Gretsch Streamliner.
