What a week! After three days of touring the northeast and Canada I stepped off the plane into the zoo that is Austin, Texas during SXSW. Music and film galore in this week-long industry hang that attracts the masses from all over the world. I rented a house in East Austin for the week with my friend and Billboard intern Chris Palermino and a couple other artists and journalists from New Orleans. It was a great refuge away from downtown Austin that turned out to have chickens chilling in the backyard. The serenity of the birds chirping and the chickens clucking in the backyard gave me a lot of inspiration. I even wrote a couple songs while I was down there.
Downtown I saw countless bands and rappers throughout the week. The highlights included Talib Kwalib, Green Day, The Flaming Lips, Daedalus, and Action Bronson. I also checked out some friends of mine – Bucks Rockers Hunter Valentine and Elle King. The Skins at the Wreckroom showcase fucking rocked!! They are so much tighter than they where when I saw them last. Their French tour with The Heavy really paid off. Oh yeah and Adrian Grenier from Entourage was there to top it off.
On Friday I had the pleasure of getting on Mr. Palermino’s showcase. Check out his label Shorewave Records when you get a chance. Palermino does a great job of finding and helping out Boston-based bands.
I had the chance to busk when I was down there and met Amelia Romano, a fantastic harpist from San Francisco. Be sure to check her out. I got a chance to sneak into some fancy private party with an open bar and BBQ food being pumped out all night thanks to Bryan Blaylock and Pierce Saxon, a couple rad folk musicians who turned me on to some Jim James.
I got to hang out and work the WFUV radio day showcase featuring Iron & Wine, Dawes and Vampire Weekend. Speaking of WFUV, I gotta be there at 8am tomorrow morning for my shift. This Monday is gonna be rough.
P.S.: Bonus links!
1) April Siese, a New Orleans writer for NolaDefender, was our housemate for the week. Check her out on Twitter and her site.
