Today was another really great day in Austin. The weather was fantastic, and we saw some fun music and friends. We brunched with our buddy Spike first thing in the morning, and then had him drop us off downtown as we mosied over to the next show.
On our way there, we heard Poliça warming up, and we were waved into the Hard Rock hotel space. There they were doing free instagram stickers, which were very cool, and they gave Jamie a free shave (with hot towels and a neck massage!). And we got to see Poliça again! Fun!
From there, we wandered down to the Mohawk where we waited in line for about 45 minutes before getting in to see Blitzen Trapper, Cloud Nothings and Bob Mould. Cloud Nothings were so, so good. They don’t have Minneapolis on their touring schedule yet, but keep your eyes peeled. I really want to catch them in the Entry or Triple Rock.
The rest of the day was spent seeing friends and catching up — one spot had Lissy Trullie playing, and that’s when I snapped this photo of her bass player. I love her look. This event was at this Ray Ban house where they featured artwork from “visionaries,” and it was filled with amazing concert posters and rock photography. So I was thrilled!
We are back packing at the hotel now before heading out for the last three shows tonight. They won’t end until 2 am, and we have to leave for the airport by 4:30 am, so we’re trying to get all that we can done now so that we might sleep for an hour or so tonight. Rock’n’roll. Also? Do not call me tomorrow. I’ll be sleeping like a rock. And after I wake up, I will post more photos of today…
