It’s been a week since we got back from SXSW (South by Southwest) and I think I’m still catching up on sleep!  You may remember that last year my friend Michelle & I covered shows at the SXSW music festival for Aurgasm, the music blog she writes for.  Well, we headed out to good ol’ Austin, Texas again for 3 jam-packed days of music!

After catching a red-eye flight out of LAX, a layover in Dallas, a broken plane + flight delay, and a 2-hour time change, we eventually found ourselves in Austin….exhausted but ready for the next 3 days of sleeplessness.

Here are pictures from Day 1.  Don’t forget to stop by Aurgasm and check out Michelle’s more thorough recap, complete with videos and free music downloads.  Who doesn’t like FREE music?
