AllMusic Review by

Recorded live at Roadhouse Rags in Austin, TX during the 2009 SXSW showcase festival, this set features roots rock, modern Americana, and reconfigured Cajun music from three Louisiana acts, female sextet the Figs, folk-blues balladeer Drew Landry, and Cajun revivalists the Pine Leaf Boys. The second album release from the newly formed Blue Moon Music Group, it features great sound, plenty of ambience, and fine cuts from all three acts, including the wonderful “Cross That Bridge” from the Figs, a moody and bluesy “Grosbec” from Landry, and a stomping “Limonade” from the Pine Leaf Boys.
