Erik G is a pretty calm guy, but when he watches this video of two of his favorite people –Kate Nash and Billy Bragg– duet the song "A New England" he's going to FLIP!

Kate Nash & Billy Bragg A New England Video
Last week's SXSW was an utter blur, but a glorious blur it was. Filter hosted three days of music and fun in the sun at Cedar Street Courtyard, all sponsored by our friends at American Rag and VTech. Our final day ended with a headlining performance by secret special guest and current Ragged cover star, Kate Nash. Tacking on an additional "wow" factor, Kate brought along her friend, the one and only Billy Bragg, to play a few songs with her for the packed crowd. We've managed to get video footage of Kate & Billy dueting on the Billy Bragg classic, "A New England", where you can easily see the genuine comradeship between the unlikely duo as they equally trade off smiling glances and verses.
