So every SXSW I go about the same plan.. I dont make any; other than heading out to meet up with friends and what ever happens happens. This year was no different with the exception that I opted for 2 wheels rather than 4 on this particular day. Not wanting to deal with the hassle of traffic, parking, paying to park blah, blah, blah and given the previous nights event in downtown Austin, I just felt more comfortable on my bike. So I parked at work (I had the day off) and began my adventure. Stop one, The lost Well - 2421 Webberville Rd. Miles biked: 2.4 Friends: Jason, Marc And Mo(+1) :) Music: Kelley Deal and Mike Montgomery. Quotes: "I thought for sure they were gonna play Cannonball" - Mo(+1) "There just aren't enough bands using the word motherfucker these days, we just need more songs with the word motherfucker" - Jason (while listening to a band screaming motherfucker... a lot.) "Now this isn't a pot holder folks" - Kelley Deal [gallery type="rectangular" ids="628,629,630,631,632"]
Stop two, Shangri la - 1016 E 6th St Miles biked: 1.2 Friends: Marc, Mo(+1), Paul, Debbie, Paula and Drew Music: nothing remarkable... sorry kids Quotes: "This guy sounds like Dave Mathews but with better hair" - Marc
Final destination, Cusp on Rainey - 78 Rainey St. Miles biked: .8 miles Friends: Ryan, Tiana, Bonsai, Nikki and Jonathan Music: Meg Myers (heard her while I stood in line), Oh Honey and Night Terrors of 1927 Quotes: "Night Terrors play next here! I will get pics!" - Kyle "Fml, I seriously want to cry" - Brit
Enjoy the rest of your SXSW and please be careful!
Until next time, Kyle
