SXSW 2012 Day 1 – March 14th, 2012

Howdy y’all, I’m in Texas!

(Am I now a more popular Republican candidate that I’ve used a regional colloquialism?)

I landed in Austin and I immediately raced from the airport to the hotel to the convention center to the most famous BBQ joint in the greater Austin area (technically it’s outside of Austin but grant me this one since I’m just back to blogging). Yes, I finally ate at The Original Salt Lick.

Why no photos? Because I was all about the business of eating BBQ!

(I think my poll numbers just went up in Alabama and Mississippi.)

Afterwards I hung out with my best friend Rosie.

(she was there for the film festival portion of SXSW).

I did manage to catch one band, Saint Motel, and they were a pretty great “welcome to SXSW 2012”.

Obviously they’re my pick of the day. Take a listen.

Lastly, I also met a few new people and am posting this for my school-boy-crush-of-the-day. I’m bummed I missed this guy (he was scheduled for one show only. Boo!)

From now on, no regrets. SXSW, Ho!

(BTW, where are all the hos at?)
