SXSW Success!



I had a great time at my first-ever South by Southwest. It took a lot of energy and I lost a lot of sleep, but I saw quite a few great bands and really got a feel for what this town has to offer. Plus I only spend around $60 over the course of 4 nights!!!

Here's a list of who I saw:

Wednesday 3/16
AWOL Nation at Rusty Spurs
Flogging Molly at ACL Moody Theater
Queens of the Stone Age at La Zona Rosa
Duran Duran at Stubb's

Thursday 3/17
Skrillex at Cheer Up Charlie's (video below)
Moby at Cheer Up Charlie's
The Strokes at Auditorium Shores
Smoosh at Cedar Street Courtyard
The Bangles at Cedar Street Courtyard

Friday 3/18
City & Color at Stubb's
Airborne Toxic Event at Stubb's
Scala and The Kolacny Brothers at Stubb's
OMD at Stubb's

Sunday 3/20
Olin and the Moon at Cheer Up Charlie's

I have to say, while it's hard being away from friends/family, I'm feeling a lot more confident in my decision to move. There is so much to do here now that the weather is warm, it's hard to sit around and feel lonely. Yeehaw!
