Continuing a long tradition of unique live music experiences at SXSW, JamBase will present a pair of special “pop-up sets” from Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang on Thursday, March 13. Les Claypool and Bryan Kehoe will perform 30-minute sets at SouthBites in Austin at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. The SouthBites Food Truck Park is located at 604 Driskill St. (Southeast corner of Cesar Chavez & Red River).

Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang recently released their debut studio album, Four Foot Shack, which Les and Bryan aimed at making sound as “live” as possible instead of relying on studio sweetening. “It was very live,” admits Les in a statement. “In fact, it was a little difficult, with all the bleed of the stomping and the bass and the vocals. Every now and again you can hear the studio refrigerator come on or the dog barking at something outside in the background. Once it was there, you had to kind of leave it.” The pair are currently in the midst of a tour that includes the stint at SXSW and concludes at Howlin’ Wolf in New Orleans on March 15.
