Tulsa, an indie-rock band from Boston fronted by Carter Tanton, was a big hit at its last SXSW appearance Saturday night at Emo's Annex. After the trio's set, a young guy from Alabama near the front was incredulous. "Man, no offense, but that didn't sound like it was from Boston at all," he told me. "It sounded Southern. They should be opening for My Morning Jacket."
