‘Once’ in Austin

'Once' in Austin

(Glen Hansard, right, and Markéta Irglová, sitting at her piano, performing at Stubb’s in Austin, on Thursday night. The duo, co-stars of the Irish arthouse hit Once, are currently touring North America with a catalog of great songs.)

As usual, and as he does with his day job band The Frames, Hansard was a charismatic and lively presence. Both of them did a masterful job on this brisk autumn night. And, yes, I have little doubt that Once will be remembered when the Oscar nominations for “Best Original Song” come through. The film, which is truly one of those special treasures of the year, will have its DVD release on December 18.
