Texas Bound | A Continuous Lean.

Texas Bound

Mar 18th, 2009 | Categories: Housekeeping, Music | by Michael Williams

I’m headed down to Texas today for the South by Southwest music festival. It is exciting to get a chance to hang out with friends, see a ton of shows and indulge in the odd alcoholic beverage in one of my favorite cities in America. Posting will continue as scheduled (although anything SXSW related won’t be up until I return next week) so check back for normal updates. Many thanks again to all that helped secure accommodations in Austin.

As always, follow the slightly buzzed photos and words via the ACL Twitter feed.

A few non-SXSW related songs below for your viewing pleasure.

    I have always wanted to try chicken fried steak and white sauce.

    Somebody likes the Take Away Shows.

    Check out the ones by Seasick Steve and Tom Jones (yes, Tom Jones).

    Hey will you pick me up a 6 pack of Shiner Bock beer? It’s what a true Texas gentleman would drink and you can’t get it in New York, sadly.

    Sorry, yesterday’s “forum” was too good.

    If you’ve got the time, Harlem Shakes are playing a few shows. They’re brilliant.

    Get a burger at Casino El Camino, drive south to Lockhart and get brisket and sausage at Smitty’s. On an unfortunate note, Ziegen Bock tastes more like old Shiner than Shiner does now. I shed a tear for it. Though Real Ale is made here in the hill country and isn’t bad, nor are the other locals, like Live Oak.
