I’ve been living in Austin, Tx now for almost 3 years now and this is my first time I’m attending any SXSW activities. One of the biggest music festivals in the world! A two week extravaganza of music and media interactions and tons of people watching. People are flying in from all over the country to see these bands perform. It’s a photographer heaven! I attended the free show at Whole Foods on the roof. Yep, on the ROOF! That’s how we roll in Austin! Me and a few of my best girl friends grabbed some bubbles and waited for the party to get started and it was indeed a party!
Seeing all the people having a great time, meeting new people and talking about how Austin ROCKS was just the start to the day! The sun was shining and the music was flowing. It was such an awesome Sunday Funday and it was only the first day of SX! There is so many things happening all over town it’s almost overwhelming! Thousands of bands performing all over Austin, it’s enough to make your head spin! If you can’t make it to Austin for this incredible event I hope that my photos take you there.
I hope you can feel the passion from Honor Society’s drummer Alex. Nothing is more sexy to me than when someone is passionate about what they do- plus a great smile certainly doesn’t hurt. You may know their song “OVER YOU”
I was diggin the sounds from Suite 709, (a local Austin band) when they took the stage. The lead singer Jirod Green was totally given off a Terrance Trent D’arby meets Lenny Kravitz vibe. Quite sexy! Loved their song ” Life Won’t Let You Down.” Been listening to them on Spotify all morning.
To top the afternoon off my good friend, graphic design artist of my BEAN and talented bad ass drummer Rona Rogueheart played with Jordan Bass. There Americana sound was unique and was the perfect way to end my first day of SXSW.
