SXSW 2009- A Mini Recap

I was totally prepared to do a post involving lots and lots of pictures, but I just don't have it in me.

My first trip to Austin was everything I could have hoped for. I am completely tex-mexed out. I am not longer on my diet coke detox. My frist one was a really crappy fountain one at a show at Stubb's BBQ. Booooooo for that. I however wasn't craving them as much as I once was and I still didn't feel the need to have one with every meal I ate out. Why drink diet coke when you can drink margaritas? I am still keeping up with the no sweets.

Here are the shows that I can remember off the top of my head:
Anni Rossi
M. Ward
The Avett Brothers
The Decemberist
Thao Nguyen and the Get Down Stay Down
Jessica Lea Mayfield
Tinted Windows (umm it's a Super Group with James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), Taylor Hanson (you know he was in the boy band Hanson and sang Mmmmm bop!), Adam Schlesinger (fountains of Wayne), and Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick)
Port O'Brien
Okkervil River
Mi Ami
All The Saints
Matt and Kim
Third Eye Blind
The Airborne Toxic Event
and there were a few more.

I am off to bed. Going to bed at 3 AM the past 5 days has taken it's toll on me.

I like that Airborne Toxic Event song that I've been hearing on the radio, so I might check out their CD soon. How were they live?

Glad you had a good time :)

Tricia- The Airborne Toxic Event were really great live. If they play near you, I highly suggest checking them out!
