SXSW Day 1

SXSW is always a whirlwind adventure. As soon as I landed in Austin yesterday, I hopped in a car and head strait to Aryln Studios. AKA Willie Nelson’s studio in Austin. First up was Jack Garratt and he was effin amazing. He’s a one man band with so much soul and swagger. You can be sure you will be hearing more from him over the next couple of months. Then we were treated to an acoustic performance from Band of horses…. my music loving heart melted. Plus we got to hear tracks off the new album and they are AMAZING! They really have taken things to the next level with this new music… I really wish I could share it with you. After that we headed across town to Stubbs. There was food, there was drinks, there was Head and The Heart. They played an acoustic set and also played us some new music. It was so beautiful some people in the crowd had tears int heir eyes…. i am not joking. Then we did the Iggy Pop hustle …. meaning I needed to figure out how the F!ck to get in. It was yesterdays must see show. I got lucky and one of my friends got a plus 1 from management and let me tag along. There really are no words to explain how mind blowing the show was. Obviously if you know me at all then you know I love Josh Homme, so Josh and Iggy together…. It was next level. The show kicked off with lust for life and man does Iggy still have it…. he crowd surfed, he jumped around stage, he crushed every song. The show will 100% go down as one of the top 5 shows I have ever been to in my entire life. Last up it was Car Seat Headrest in a Church…. They are up and coming out of seattle and I am looking forward to hearing more from them. But after that I was basically done for the day. More updates to come after day 2. Xo CT
