SO…
I have returned from Texas. Success. My week was fantastic. I saw *almost* all the bands I set out to see. On top of that, I got a job! Dear Diary, JACKPOT. Some of the best shows I saw this week were:
Dredg, He Is Legend, Thunderheist, Cave Doll, SUPERVOLCANO, Chris Braid, The Low Anthem, Annie and the Beekeepers, Young Love, Liam and Me, BOB, etc.
Austin was a next level experience. Sensory overload, in a good way. Music starting from 11:00am and going straight through until 2:00am, what a blast. Free drinks. Awesome people. Thousands of bands promoting their music. I would live it everyday if I could.
It would have been cool to see Metallica play their only 2,000 capacity venue since the 80’s, but you can’t win ’em all. I’ll go again next year, thank you.
