Following a set by fellow Austin act the Jibs, singer-songwriter Chris Fullerton helped get the Lone Star Music / KOKE-FM sponsored “Dillo Mixer” at Threadgill’s off to a very strong start with songs from his just-released full-length debut, Epilepsy Blues (including the title track, shown here) as well as a handful of tunes hopefully destined to be featured on his already-in-the-works follow-up.

Other performers at this year’s Dillo Mixer — held last Friday (St. Patrick’s Day) at the height of South By Southwest week — included Sunny Sweeney, Shinyribs, the Band of Heathens, Shane Cooley & the Midnight Girls, Robyn Ludwick, Michigan Rattlers, and the Railhouse Band.
