Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso join Jade at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Meath relates a story from a friend in Beck's band, who opened for Prince. The story is an example of Prince's generosity and love of music. "[Prince] filmed the entirety of their set," Meath says, "and put a DVD of it into the TV and gave them notes on their set before he went on."
