In 1999 at Liberty Lunch in Austin, I saw Keller Williams open for String Cheese Incident, and he totally stole the show for me. I had never seen someone looping live, and stood right in front of him mesmerized, watching his every move. Somehow, I never caught another show of his, and had heard through the years that he was of the dirty hippie variety. I have no problems with dirty hippies, and was excited to see him again opening for JJ Grey and Mofro. When he came out in a slick grey suit with two gorgeous back up singers, my jaw dropped in complete surprise. Elegant, poetic, and extremely expressive, Keller was the highlight of my night, and I’ll definitely see him any time he comes around. More in depth review being published tomorrow at Westword.
