Actual Wolf meets & greets & rides a bicycle.
Arrived in Austin at 10:00am Wednesday after an all night drive from Nashville. I was very sleepy but had to keep going. So, I got some great coffee at Houndstooth and made our way into the madness.
SXSW is the one week where everyone gets to be somebody and folks definitely make the most of it. It's an absolute trip.
I met up with Bob from Chaperone Records & Maddi Frick (former KAXE music director and recent Twin Cities transplant). We all went for a nice brunch, more coffee was consumed and a plan was formed. We got the bikes from the condo and headed to the #BillyReidShindig to watch Jesse Lee Mayfield followed by Les Claypool's duo.
Both sets were great. I preferred Claypool's set. It was really great. While I was leaving I spotted one of my favorite punk rockers Richie Kirkpatrick aka Ri¢hie. You definitely have to check him out. He's incredible... One of my favorite performers. A true talent.
I took off solo on my bicycle. Had to go to rehearsal with Nikki Lane before I met up with everyone on 6th Street.
On my way to 6th, Bob & I ran into Sean Anonymous. I love this dude. He feels like he's been my homey forever. We split up... He headed to Tech9, Bob & I to Holy Mountain to see Sylvan Esso. THEY RULE. Expect them to have a big breakout year. Super Cool. Thanks to Josh Sundquist for the hook up.
Then it was back to 6th for a slice and back to the crib for some much needed sleep.
