**SXSW Spotlight** Walter Meego

I first saw Walter Meego when they opened for VHS or Beta last September at the Mohawk. It was outside and it was so freaking cold but I didn't stop me from having a good time. There were quite a few people at the show and I know I wasn't the only one impressed by them. You can tell they were having a good time on stage and even professed their love of Austin numerous times. Walter Meego is originally from Chicago, but have relocated to L.A. to work on their music. They have some new demos on their myspace. Hopefully they will have a cd out by the end of the year. They are signed to Almost Gold Recordings, whose roster includes Peter, Bjorn and John, Calvin Harris, and Black Kids (Almost Gold Recordings, UK). Anyone else check them out on tour?
