SXSW Rocked My World!


Kirsten and I show off our SXSW wristbands at Town Lake Park.

Well, I hate to brag, but I just got back from the greatest spring break ever! Wait, what am I talking about? I love to brag! I spent the entire week in indie rock paradise. Seriously, SXSW was incredible. Everything about the trip was perfect (if you don’t count the 12 hours I spent in the Austin airport today). Kirsten was an amazing host. I had an awesome time hanging out with her, Erin (Kirsten’s roommate), and Dave (Kirsten’s other visiting friend).

There’s so much to report. Way too much for tonight. I saw more live music in four days than most people see in a lifetime. I still don’t know how I pulled it off, but I saw 81 bands while I was in Austin. Yep, 81. If you don’t believe me, I have pictures of every single band I saw as proof. Here they are in alphabetical order -- solo artists are listed by first name, and numbers and symbols are listed as if they were spelled out…you get the idea [click on the band names to see the photos]:

Count ‘em! That’s 81. And you know what? There is so much that I missed. It really was an overwhelming experience. I mean, how often are you forced to choose between Sleater-Kinney, Mono, The Bad Plus, Hella, Elvis Costello, The Wrens, Mark Mallman, Parker and Lily, Murder By Death, Billy Idol, and American Music Club??? (And that’s only a fraction of the sets that were happening around 1:00 a.m. on Wednesday night.) I’m telling you; indie rock paradise.

I didn't see hardly as many bands as you did. If I didn't have to drive solo without the aid of cruise control I would've been there everyday. The Trashcan Sinatras were my favorite performance. I recorded it too, but it got a little fudged. I'm jealous you saw Ambulance LTD too but I'll see them at the City Limits festival.
