SXSW and the Houston Rodeo!
Yelp's Backyard Blowout party first and snacked on tacos and smoked black bean hummus while drinking Texas based libations with awesome mixers such as lavendar and cucumber sodas and St. Germain liquor!
Sydney Wayser and a band from Seattle called Hey Marseilles that was filled with multitalented musicians that played: guitar, cello/bass, violin, keyboard/accordian, trumpet/sax/bass clarinet, and drums.
From there we headed further into the city and got caught up in the craziness that is SXSW - I could not believe the number of people that were filling the streets and bars!
And we finished off the night at a karaoke bar where we gorged on cheese balls and "danced" in our roller chairs. The next day was a bit of a late start. We finally made it out of the house and headed into the thick of SX to see a band called Ramona Falls. I definitely liked them and my favorite part was when they started playing percussion on the metal light scaffolding!
The Soldier Thread - who I really liked! And then we met up with a bunch of people to listen to Humans, but I was losing fuel by this point.
Austin Art Garage where I bought this awesome guy:
