SXSW - Punk Rock Sunday

posted by on March 17 at 12:17 PM

I think I like SXSW after most everyone goes home. By Sunday afternoon, the streets are mostly empty, no more long lines, and everyone’s much much more relaxed. It’s just the locals and diehards. I saw some of my favorite shows on Sunday… in a deliriously tired and brilliantly beer-soaked haze.

What a weird way to end the night.
I need a very VERY long nap.

loved 'em. and they played Beerland, Austin's Comet Tavern, - so super fun. after the show the drummer kept yanking hairs from his beard and telling me to keep them in my pocket for good luck. we'll see if it works

Just so everyone knows. Bunny Puncher and Lee are aliases for Eric Grandy.

Great job this week, K.O.! You are more punk rock than all these bands put together. Next time, even less sleep and even more rock! I don't think I even remember what sleep is anymore but I'm gonna try it now.

Two things that may disprove the bunnypuncher = Lee = Grandy theory.

1. I have absolutely zero interest in electronic music.

2. Lee is roughly 18 inches taller than me.

3. I'm using my real name because I'm so not afraid of what would happen to me if I call bullshit on whatever "rock" music you're listening to while coked up at 4:30am, blogging. Johnny Thunders would approve, jackass.
