TEXAS IS THE REASON (SXSW WRAP UP)

Arevolt.com

Austin Texas ruled pretty hard! Texas ruled because the guy at the “saloon” called me “boss” the entire time I drank, beer is only $2.00, Lone Star and Shiner (Texas Beers) are both better than Pabst, the climate is way warmer, people are way nicer and every bar comes equipped with matches that have the number for a DUI attorney affixed to them (I shit you not).

I went to SXSW this year to represent the band I manage, The Peasantry and guide them in their journey of rock n roll! A long the way I had the honor of attending The Syndicate party. (Thursday)

Brian did a veggie dog VS meat dog taste test!

After The Syndicate party I met up with the boys in The Peasantry and we headed to Sixth Street where all the action was taking place.

We then decided to hit up the free Todd P party SXSW 2008 Todd P (Yes we are drinking outside, something you can’t do in Boston)
and watched the ever amazing Death Set rock the fuck out and cover a sweet Nirvana song in the process!

Deathset Rocked so hard that we all decided to go see them play AGAIN at their second showcase of the evening, the official Ninja Tune records party where were all of our cheap asses snuck in with the band!

After the Ninja Tune showcase we decided to call it a night. We returned to our hotel where we found some fine Texas beef waiting for us.

FRIDAY
You may notice that I am wearing the same shirt on Thursday and Friday. Well…..I am because PROLETARIAT POLO’S are fucking ill. Now we continue with Friday. The Peasantry and I had to load in around 11:30 am so we were up early after a late night of raging! The Peasantry had a line of loyal fans waiting at the venue.

Then it was time for TEXMEX (We sat next to PEREZ HILTON, FOR REAL)

I asked Perez if we could come to his party. He proceeded to laugh at me, so me and the boys got wasted, sitting on a log, over top of a river. If the log snapped I wouldn’t be here typing this right now.

The boys and I continued to rage at various parties for the remainder of the night. Unfortunetely we were all too smashed to remember to take photos. We sat at a gas station and waited for a cab at 4 am and I thought to myself gas is even expensive in Texas!

That ended my trip for the most part. I got on a plane at 8 am Saturday morning with less than an hours sleep. I wish I was back in Texas. I will post some videos and more serious thoughts of SXSW soon.
