Overtime! Too good to be contained to just seven days, Couch By Couchwest again stretched into an eighth and did not disappoint. Sure, some CXCW veterans didn’t make it this year (Austin Lucas, John Moreland, Uncle Leon and the Alibis), but we did finally get something from the Arliss Nancy family, thanks to Cory Call. The Blind Owl Band appear to have modified their couch to include a bottle opener. Well done, gents! Florence, Alabama’s Slug’s Revenge should challenge Imperial Rooster to a Couch-Off for CXCW2015. The video by the mysterious Sarah Cheung is a bit like an awkward first date. Since she didn’t submit her video for Wagon Wheel, we’d consider asking for a second outing. Mark Piper kicked the bottle cap off on the last day of CXCW2014 with another wonderful drinking song.
Enjoy the random selection of videos from Day 8 below and check out all the artists who performed at CXCW today and over the entire festival. Until next year, a hearty cheers to everyone involved!
