SXSW 2009 Part 1

This last South By Southwest festival was fantastic. It was my fourth time attending and was right up there with my first time. I had a good group of friends, great weather, Hannah came along, our hotel was awesome once again, eat and drank well, scored some free clothes (a Dickies jacket, some Airwalks and a Brooklyn Industries T shirt) and I even saw a band or two. Honestly I could have seen a little bit more music, but I still came home with a renewed love of live music and discovering new bands.

These photos were taken by me, Hannah, Matt, Melissa Fischer, some guy named Ian at our party, and STV SLV.


Chris is a procrastinator and was only able to buy a first class ticket. This is first class on a small plane. Not much bang for the buck.



The view from the elevator at our hotel.




As is tradition, we got BBQ at Ironworks after picking up our badges.



Here's 6th street early in the day. At night it looks like Mardi Gras. It's kind of awful, but a small price to pay for the good times. Some Austin street pics.



Schubas held it's 13th annual Round Up, once again, at Yard Dog. Here it is before the action, with my great looking banner :).



Coordination!


Fauzia looks like she's giving Hannah a piece of her mind.
