Busking bar band

This is a bar band from McAllen Texas called The Scarlet Effect singing a cover of Emiliana Torrini's "Ha Ha". They showed up in Austin at SXSW and of course as a new band from the sticks they didn't have a gig, so they started busking on the street:

Within 20 minutes or so they had a gig. And why not? Meagan Hofstetter has the perfect voice (and personality, based on her videos!) for a bar band, after all -- loud, gin-soaked, and exuberant.
