2. The Bright Light Social Hour Opens for Natalie Maines and Wendy Davis at #SWTW Rally

http://www.democraticunderground.com/107810263

Wendy Davis may have been the headliner for today's Stand With Texas Women rally at the Capitol, but she wasn't the only rock star to grace the stage.

Before Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks sung the national anthem and fan favorite "Not Ready to Make Nice," local band and 2011 Austin Music Awards "Band of the Year" The Bright Light Social Hour kicked off the show.

The band had witnessed Davis' filibuster and were so inspired they went right back home to their studio and recorded the track, aptly named "Wendy Davis". The video is a montage of themselves in the studio and the folks in the Capitol rotunda decked out in orange chanting the only word of the song -- "Wendy."

One of the rally's organizers saw the video and reached out to the band to see if they'd want to kick things off. By that time the video had over 5,000 views and the name "Wendy" was the hottest thing on the internet. Luckily the band was available to play a short set for the thousands who showed up just before the noontime program got underway.

I cannot post the actual video from the Capitol, but it is available at http://www.burntorangereport.com/diary/13733/the-bright-light-social-hour-opens-for-natalie-maines-and-wendy-davis-at-swtw-rally.

Here is the YouTube version of "Wendy".
