Farther Along

Britt Daniel of Spoon, whose long-awaited new album is being mastered this week, premiered the poker-faced "Mathematical Mind" during Sunday's Tsunami Relief: Austin to South Asia benefit at the Austin Music Hall. Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison were joined by Natalie Maines (l-r, above) for Robison's "Travelin' Soldier," and Gato Negro Ruben Ramos crooned "13 Years" with a hale-looking Alejandro Escovedo and Jon Dee Graham. Appearing with his "Liberty Lunch band," Joe Ely opened his charged set with a verse of the spiritual "Farther Along," and songbird Patty Griffin took the sold-out crowd's breath away guesting with headliner Willie Nelson on "Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground." Organizer Michael Hall estimated Sunday's take to be around $125,000, to be distributed among several charities, including CARE, UNICEF, and the American Red Cross.
