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).
We then decided to hit up the free Todd P party (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!

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.
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.
