SXSW Photo Blog 2 - March 17, 2011

After being up till the wee hours of the morning from the night before, its time to head out just after noon for the day parties on Thursday, March 17, 2011.



The creepy cool house we passed every day, heading up to 6th Street.



First stop - the Prefix Magazine Day Party




Oh Land is the first artist we catch



Its a brilliant, high engery show



She's quite lovely

Immediately followed by one of the many Brooklyn bands at the festival
Asobi Seksu

Guitarist James Hanna is ready to go



Yuki and the rest of the band are in prime form



Their set list, written out on a coffee filter




While stopping in to Waterloo Records, Nicole Atkins poster is spotted




And then the actual Nicole Atkins performs at a 6th Street venue




You could hear and see the entire show, right from the street

Then its over to the Hotel Vegas outdoor show


To see The Vandelles



Pre show merch activity



Must have items



The band is on and its surfs up everywhere



Ready to go



Lulu rocks the black




The boys and their guitars



Jas, Honey and Lulu



Honey keeps the beat steady





Another killer set


The Hotel Vegas


Then its off and down to the East Bound Getdown


Croms stops to chat with Daniel, drummer
for Ringo Deathstarr




and then with Elliott and Amanda




We catch a great set from Turbo Fruits




You gotta love that cat amp



Alex from Ringo Deathstarr
ready for their show



Sponsored by Thunderbird Coffee


Daniel has the Thunder going on



Elliott brings that sound




While Daniel throttles



White light, white heat













Off to the food park

Its Pig Vicious



and some Bits & Druthers


Then off to to The Longbranch Inn to see
A Place To Bury Strangers


Hanging pre-show with drummer Jay Space

Awesome collection of real vacation photographs. NASA could learn something from The Davester. Also, pretty cool that The Vandelles named a song after you, "Dash N Dave" :)

DaveCromwell said...

Its the least they could do for me, VFSD (after all the shows of theirs I've attended) ;-)

Mr Smork said...

another easy reading post. :)))
good shoot - nicole from behind... :))) rare thing these days. :)))
and i don't know weather it is good or bad, but - i think i got a slight crush on "the vandalles" drummer.... :)))
and i was checking "ringo deathstarr" and i got to say i like their sound. :)
good stuff, dave.

Thanks Anouk!

And lol at "slight crush on the Vandelles drummer" Mr. Smork. That would include nearly everyone (yours truly) who's ever seen the band. Welcome to the "There's Something About Honey" club ;-)
