Texas songwriter Walt Wilkins — along with two of his trusty Mystiqueros, Jimmy Davis, and Bill Small — joined Lone Star Music and KOKE-FM for our St. Patrick’s Day “Dillo Mixer” at Threadgill’s during South by Southwest week in Austin. Here they are performing “Watch It Shine,” the title track of the album Wilkins and the Mystiqueros released last year (the same day that Wilkins also released his latest solo album, Streetlight.) The three amigos were almost — almost — upstaged by a couple of spotlight-stealing young dancers, though the seasoned troubadours didn’t seem to mind the competition one bit.

The full-day Dillo Mixer festivities also featured performances by Shinyribs, Sunny Sweeney, the Band of Heathens, Robyn Ludwick, Chris Fullerton, Shane Cooley & the Midnight Girls, Michigan Rattlers, the Railhouse Band, and the Jibs.
