After starting up an Old Settler’s Music Festival playlist by following John Fullbright’s “Satan and St. Paul” with a track by St. Paul & the Broken Bones, it felt like a fated challenge to see just how long we could connect the tissue. Call it a salute to the late, great local DJ Larry Monroe’s “Segway City,” if you will.

We made it through tracks by 17 different artists who’ll be part of the 30 performing at the four-day festival this Thursday to Sunday in Driftwood just southwest of Austin. We’ll have a full preview online on Thursday and in Friday’s Austin360 section. In the meantime, listen in, and follow the word-threads from song to song.
