Today, SXSW officially kicked off. The City is expecting more than 100,000 visitors for this next week's festival. The city is dressed up, the news is covering all angles, and the net is live with activities. The streets are being blocked off, and it's like Mardi Gras comes to Austin.
The weather is perfect. Eighty degrees in the afternoon, with cool evenings and mornings. Last night we had some down home BBQ at Ruby's. Some of the best BBQ I ever had. Loved that brisket.
We've been practicing during the day this whole week, and tonight we had our first night time practice and it was magical. It's all coming together. We are really excited to receive Rigot on Sunday. We've been speaking with him by phone and we are all looking forward to being together.
We will go to see The Hickoids on Saturday night. Hick punk. Should be cool.
