SXSW day two

Well we had a great first day here in Austin. My total tally so far for being tagged as, “hey… Your the dude from Main Drag!”: 14.

The finally of day one was catching Gary Louris and Mark Olsen of the Jayhawks at a private acoustic show put on by New West records. Simply stunning!

Today is started off once again with a tall cup of overpriced joe and a bonus morning cig. I will try to sqeeze in a dirty projectors show as well as seeing Tim Easton and The Waco Brother’s Bloodshot showcase. Stay tuned…

First day….

Well the only saving grace waking up this morning was the starbucks in the lobby. I will be playing in an hour and within two hours will be severely drunk over at mohawk seeing atlanta band Gringo Star and my fav, Elvis Perkins. Stay tuned.

SXSW ’09

So once again I am heading down to SXSW to partake in the yearly tradition of playing unpaid shows while trying to stay sober enough to be operable. Lucky for you, I will be blogging about it while drunk and full of BBQ on a live, daily, up-to-date, basis… so stay tuned….

This year I will be playing guitar along side Main Drag Music customer “Tim Williams.” Every year I run into our entire customer base on 6th street in Austin. I will surely be approached again this year as…”HEY! IT’S THE DUDE FROM MAIN DRAG!” Yes, Yes…. indeed I am….

As an added bonus this year they will be having a Vintage Guitar Show at the convention center… pretty amazing! If it didn’t cost me $100 for every extra piece of gear I bring on the plane… I could do some damage down there. Anyway… stay tuned because the next six days will be exciting.
