I began my SXSW just like I began my prior SX’s at the Paste Music Party at the Stage on 6th. (A. Because Paste has the best parties ever B. Free drinks and food C. Great line-up always) I saw a few shows which included Trampled by Turtles and Jeremy Messersmith:
After scoring some free food I headed to Mi Casa Cantina to catch local boys Wicked River Band.
Then I headed to the MTVu Woodie Awards hosted by Donald Glover and pre-partied by Skrillex.
With performances by The Foo Fighters (yes I was that close to Dave Grohl)
Wiz Khalifa and Two Door Cinema Club
Awards to Matt & Kim (Kims dress was completely see-through) and Chiddy Bang
And more performances by Sleigh Bells (ft. Prarieview A&M band) and Odd Future
All in all it was a great awards show got to see some celebs, touch some band members, got some tv time, and free Doritos!
Ended the night with an after party on Soco and randomly saw The Daze.
