Nathan Followill in town to support fiancée Jessie Baylin

The line stretched far along 6th Street this afternoon as several hotly tipped acts took to the stage at The Parish in Austin for the NPR Showcase at SXSW.

Kings Of Leon drummer Nathan Followill was spotted at the show, several hours before his fiancée, singer Jessie Baylin who will perform at the venue tonight at 8.30pm. Followill caught Yeasayer’s set before checking out The Stills at nearby Emo’s and returned for Vampire Weekend’s capacity performance.

Yeasayer played a well-received upbeat set of five songs, the stuffy club conditions doing nothing to quash their energy as they ripped through ‘Wait For The Summer’, ‘2080’, ‘Forgiveness’, ‘Final Path’ and ‘Sunrise’.
