Yep, it's that time of year again. SXSW has taken over Austin, so yesterday we took Ike out and had a lovely afternoon. First we hit Emo's to see The Magic Kids, and at least 15 people asked to take pictures of Ike in his Peltor headphones within a span of 30 minutes. Then we headed out to the French Legation (which is a super fabulous and totally under utilized venue) to catch The Antlers, Sharon Van Etten and Julianna Barwick, who were all both pretty good.
Tomorrow, if the stupid weather cooperates (thunderstorms, say what???!) I'm going out to partay sans Baby Ike, which marks the first night out on the town mama will fly solo in, oh, I don't know... EIGHT MONTHS. I'm hoping to catch all kinds of awesome acts, including Rye Rye, Broken Bells and The Black Keys, plus lots of sweet new discoveries. But most importantly, I want to get into Perez Hilton's closing bash so I can hang with Snoop Dogg. I'm sure Snoop will serenade me with the version of Sensual Seduction I rewrote for him, but not if we can't get in. So Perez, please send me some passes and I will broadcast your pink shenanigans for the world for thousands to see on Monday morning. Otherwise I will be forced to party like a Momstar again with Ike at the French Legation.
Actually, that don't sound half bad.
Have a good weekend, homies!
