It’s hard to say whether or not my 2015 SXSW was a success. I saw the no. 1 band on my “to see” list, Colony House, but I stood in the rain and mud to watch their set thanks to the Friday afternoon downpours. (Still totally worth it.) I successfully parked on Austin’s city streets without getting a ticket (always an achievement in my world after this), but it was a 1.5 mile trek just from the car to downtown, never mind all the miles clocked running from venue to venue. And I just freakin’ went instead of watching from the social media sidelines like I have the last few years, but I only conquered 1.5 days before I was out.
I guess we’ll call it a draw.
Nonetheless, running the streets of downtown Austin with Lauren and Katie for as long as I lasted was blast, as always. Nothing is better than hanging out with a few of your music besties in the live music capital of the world. We saw lots of great stuff. We heard about lots of great stuff.
