"Best performance of this song by far," one YouTuber (Dougie) said of Maggie Rogers' performance at KGSR's SXSW Live Morning Broadcast. If you're like us and Dougie, then you appreciate a damn good performance.

You might already know this, but KGSR puts on a Live Morning Broadcast for SXSW every year and it starts pretty early with doors opening around 5:45AM. Artists and bands play a handful of shows per day during SXSW and it blows us away every year that they bring a crazy amount of energy to our stage so early in the morning. 

So just keep that in mind when you watch the below clip of Maggie Rogers performing "Alaska" and talking with Andy Langer. Kaity wrote in the YouTube comments, "Grace, clarity, a wise soul, and the voice of purity.  She embodies characteristics of a timeless musician and lyricist. Total joy to hear her sing." We totally agree.
