SXSW Festival, Austin, Texas

By Salt Petal • News • 18 Mar 2012

In March we packed up our things and made the drive through rain, sun, snow, and ghosts to Austin, Texas, for our first SXSW festival. Austin was warm, welcoming, and wild; hordes of people and musicians swarming around the slopes of downtown through the shrieking grackles. We wound up finding 10 gigs in 4 days and missing only one, which was a huge feat, considering how hard it was to get anywhere! The Red-Eyed Fly closing gig was our favorite, with people running in to dance and our awesome sound engineer pouring our well-mixed songs across the tree-lined stream and sidewalks just outside.
