Alright – back home in L.A. after five days in Austin – gonna do our best to provide some highlights the next few posts. First off, thanks to all the AD readers who made it out for our two-day Hot Freaks! party, Friday and Saturday, at Mohawk and Club DeVille. It was a happening. Big thanks to our sponsors, the club’s hospitality, and all the bands who played our three stages in the 90 degree Austin heat. Oh, and thanks to my SXSW badge, with my name printed on it, I actually had the opportunity to meet a number of Drunkard readers in person – good times.
The above photo was taken, maybe an hour after arriving in Austin, Wednesday afternoon, at our good pal Gorilla vs. Bear’s second annual Gorilla vs. Booze day party at the Peacock in east Austin. With a line, literally, around the block, the energy (and heat) at the Gvsb party was indicative of the weekend to come. Great party. On the bill: White Denim, Bodies of Water, Holy Fuck, Cool Kids, el Guincho, Ghosthustler, Cut Copy and White Williams. If you haven’t done so yet, check out Gorilla’s ever-expanding Polaroid collection shot by Chris and David. Here are two they snapped during Gorilla vs. Booze (White Denim and Bodies of Water.
