T-Minus 18 Days…

I am sure I have bragged about this before but…  I’m going to be checking out SXSW finally, well sort of.  I am going to be missing a few days of it thanks to school but will be able to catch the latter end as I will be arriving in Austin on March 18th around noon.

Why am I telling you all this?  Well why wouldn’t I?  I’m stoked to actually check some of this amazing span of days in one of my favorite cities.

Plus I am hoping people from Austin will read this and give me a ride from the airport to the city as I have things to do!!!  Just kidding, I made arrangements already.

Shirts For A Cure will be putting on a free show at Red 7 that will start right around the time my plane lands.  I am hoping I can make it there in time to see Paint It Black, Fake Problems, BANE, Title Fight, Riverboat Gamblers, Dave Hause, and The Flatliners. I am not holding my breath though as I am sure a ton of kids will get there before I do.

Later that night I need to poke around the city and find The Scoot Inn as Screeching Weasel, Banner Pilot, Dead To Me, and The Flatliners (2 shows in one night!) will be playing a later set.  I am pretty certain that this show is going to not be free and I will do my best to find a way in as I did not obtain a SXSW bracelet since I am only going to be there technically for two days.

Saturday afternoon it looks like Alternative Press is having a free afternoon of music as well but I am not too sure I am going to dig any of the bands so we shall see.  If anything I will spend that day eating good food and seeing good people.

I plan on making it over to Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon (see Ginny on the right) and see Dale Watson and crew play a show on Sunday the 20th.  That right there would make my weekend.  Plus I hear the chicken-shit bingo is a ton of fun too.  Mike B., I’ll be looking for you man!!!

Other than those couple events I have nothing really planned for my 5 days in the coolest city in Texas other than hanging with one of the coolest ladies on Earth.  I hope to mingle with some other friends too that I have who live in the area as well as meet up with some of the PR folks who help keep this site awesome including JT and Vanessa.

I am sure I will spend a dollar or two at Waterloo Records and I am hoping to see the cool parts of town and maybe see about getting a permanent souvenir again at Triple Crown Tattoos (not counting on that as Austin is going to be insane, but still…).

I am done bragging…for now.
