SXSW 2016 | That Was Fun

March 26, 2016

Natalie and I started music festival season with a bang. And a whole lot of beers . . . because that is what one does in Texas. SXSW brings madness upon the city of Austin, Texas for a good lot of days, and I was lucky enough to be there this time around to document it all. The bands. The people on the streets. The beers (obvi). The BBQ. The vintage. The dogs. Even some peacocks and the best of what Austin has to offer when it comes to cool outdoorsy nature stuff. The ratchet-ness of what is East 6th Street at night. And the colorful glow and energy of what South Congress is during the day. We got the full tour this time around. I photographed our southern adventures for surf/skate brand REEF‘s social media channels during the week, and now I am sharing my favorite captures for you on the blog right now. Capturing spontaneous moments out and about during my travels are my absolute favorite. SXSW it a non-stop sort of situation . . . an over indulgence in everything, and especially music. Sounds spilling out of every single door. Vibrations beating out of every speaker and from every rooftop. Despite being rained upon and many venues shutting down one day because of a storm, Austin was pretty tight. It’s a simple sort of life down there. Worn in jeans on. A beer in hand. A friend by your side. A band you never heard of playing in front of you. And lots and lots of taco trucks. Standout acts from the week were Transviolet, Matthew Logan Vasquez (formally of Delta Spirit), Tigertown, Stonefield, and Deap Vally. Check them out and give them a listen and thank me later. Bye ya’ll.
