SXSW 2016 / by Emily Quirk

SXSW was just yesterday, wasn't it?

That's what it feels like over here! I've been editing photos over the past week, compiling everything together, and here it is, in its entirety, before you! Six days of nonstop insanity, tacos for every meal, attending shows some 15 hours out of the day, endless Lonestar beers, and somehow finding some time to sleep. I was spoiled with a queen sized bunk bed to return to each night so it wasn't too hard to find my way back "home."

Over the week, I saw 52 different bands, watched (and shot) something like 65 sets - that I could count - and made more friends in a week than I ever think is possible. SXSW remains my favorite week of the year. So, relive it with me, flip through these photos as often as you please! Share them with your friends! Now that I'm going to sleep peacefully for a couple days, I'd love to hear your comments 'n feedback! 

personal rundown:
best stumble-upon: DZ Deathrays pit party
favorite set: No Parents inside American Apparel
haven't stopped listening to since: Tacocat, Bleached, Shah Jahan
best stage attire: tie between Guantanamo Baywatch in bathrobes or the Garden as jesters
best taco: 'Migas' from booth at Hotel Vegas (these kept me alive)
cheapest beer: East Austin house parties
music highlight: ~private~ sets from Thelma & the Sleaze and No Parents at Sahara Lounge
non-music highlight: film screening of Goodnight Brooklyn (about Death By Audio)

Zines may or may not be in the making... if you're into that, shoot me a line!

UNTIL NEXT YEAR!
xoxo,
Emily
