SXSW Review: Tim Wheeler (of Ash), March 11, Latitude 30

One of the greatest things about SXSW is the ability to see one of a kind performances. When I heard that Tim Wheeler was playing a solo acoustic show on Monday night, I chalked that down as one of those performances. Every year, the British take over the Latitude 30 every year and bring forth a slate of new and exciting bands for the public to hear. Sometimes, though, they also snag a few seasoned performers to help boost attendance. Monday night was the Northern Irish night at the Latitude 30 and with Ash in town for SXSW, it seemed only fitting that they did something in association with the night.

Flying solo, Tim Wheeler played a short but perfect set of acoustic Ash songs. Take a look at the songs he did:

Girl From Mars
Burn Baby Burn
Lifeless Ordinary
Oh Yeah
Shining Light

Basically, if you asked for a set of songs for Ash to play that you want, those would be it. To cap it all off, Tim Wheeler led the crowd on a sing-along of the Undertones classic Teenage Kick to celebrate the SXSW Film premier of the film Good Vibrations, a film about the development of the Belfast punk rock scene.

Not a bad way to kick off this festival, I say.
