London, Ontario band Texas King kick off the CMW festival with an energetic set at the Hideout. This band has it all, grit, a charismatic lead singer and a melodic sensibility that is truly entertaining. They play again tomorrow night at the Handlebar in Kensington. Please note... There was no stage wash on the stage. The one key light was pointed at the singer's shoes. So I used my point and shoot and prayed for the best. Full speed ahead on auto!!!!!!!!!!!!!The audio, remarkably held up to the bitter end. Enjoy!
