You for real wish you played with Willie Nelson. Green River Ordinance made the drive to SXSW in Austin from their birthplace, Ft. Worth, Texas, to do just that. A photo gallery equal parts about playing music and living life, these photos really humanize the band. That’s cool considering how, at any large festival, it becomes easy to feel far away from the souls of the people playing music at you; the souls of people you showed up to be uplifted by. Regardless, the band enchanted crowds with songs from their newest record Fifteen, and even got to make a sweet pillow fight happen.
