Austin-based rock band the Bright Light Social Hour, who were among the supporters of Fort Worth Senator Wendy Davis’ filibuster of SB5 at the Capitol Tuesday night, wrote and recorded a song about the event. The instrumental song, “Wendy Davis,” uses sound of the crowd chanting in support of Davis.

From the band: “Last night we found ourselves at the SB5 protest at the Texas State Capitol Building in Austin. After the vote went through we ran home, wrote and recorded this song and made the video with footage we took on our phones. La lucha sigue y’all.”
