The first day of SXSW began for us on Thursday. We were still trying to adjust to the two hour time difference and the heat that was about to spew on us. Starting daylight it’s already tough to find parking on the streets. The main areas for the event were packed with people already drinking away and ready to check out some epic performances. With it being the week of St. Patrick’s Day and March Madness things were just insane. Welcome to Texas.
Thanks to SP for handling the bulk of the picture taking during our trip.
People people everywhere!

We’ve spent a ton of time with Mel(Flud Watches) from this trip. I will never get use to hearing him snore. It’s chaotic.
I ran into Yelawolf in the streets. Excited to hear his music with Shady Records.
Can’t forget to mention the tons of crazy people in the streets. Austin is awesome.
Making our mark in Texas. IMKING.
I was seeing the name Frank Ocean pop up everywhere and decided to look into it. Little did I know, I would be blown away by his music. A singer that got screwed over by Def Jam Records and now, taking things into his own hands, releasing his music for free. Once I found out he was from Odd Future, I was speechless. I enjoyed this project so much that I had to share it with all of you. GOLF WANG!
