One night into SXSW and it’s already shaping up to be xtra ridic. The Cribs and Lou Barlow (nice Ratt cover dude!) ripped it up at the FADER/Levi’s Trading Post, along with a grip of other bands and ill selector Chicken George.
After that thoroughly rocking afternoon/early evening, we grabbed some quick fries and margaritas for sustinance, then brought our pals Damon Albarn and Sean Reveron out to the Back Room to see Devin The Dude and Bun B absolutely kill it (props to Matt Sonzala for setting that show up). Damon kicked it with the Odd Squad, and Devin wrecked a greatest hits set – complete with random audience member coming onstage to dance along to “I just wanna fu-uh-uh-uck yooooo….”. Right after that, Bun and the MDLFNGRZ ripped up the Timbaland instrumental to “Put You On The Game”, and kept the show going long after last call and the house lights went up. Somehow, we drove back to the hotel in one piece.
More ruckus tomorrow!
