I've been putting off writing this post because I am in the midst of finals...but I have something else I want to post, and I don't want to get out-of-order on anything.
My South By Southwest experience this years was amazing, to say the least.
From volunteering (hospitality--feeding volunteers) to walking around town and actually going to shows...I had a blast.
Last Wednesday I wrote about local band Brazos, and I was lucky enough to get in a few more events and shows.
On Thursday, I went to the American Apparel SXSW Flea Market with my friend Megan.
Megan, if you'll remember, might as well be my partner-in-crime: we've gotten lost together, have shopped vintage together, and have now skipped class together (we were caught up in the class, but still).
At the Flea Market, I ended up buying a red swimsuit top and a blue "Legalize America Now." tee for 12 bucks. Megan found a dress, a duffel bag, and a shirt for less than $50.
On Saturday night, I caught the end of Justin Townes Earl (not pictured; ridiculously dirty lyrics), learned She&Him didn't get a sound check, went back to Valhalla to see the London-based Stricken City, the Virginian band Gifts From Enola, and rounded the evening out with Boston's Caspian.
Thanks to SXSW for the YouTube clip.
