SXSW 2011 DAY FIVE RECAP

Day five here in Austin, TX at SXSW 2011 was actually a pretty dull day at our venue…….of the bands really did anything for me…….rather lackluster……lots of tecno pop…….YAWN…….but we ended the night with a band called THE BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB that was really cool…….earlier in the evening though I was able to break away for several hours of the Digidesign guys took over at the monitor desk and I wondered over to The Continental Club on South Congress and caught THE FLESHTONES……..they are one of those bands I was very into in my college days……it was great seeing them live and band was tight and polished and the old hits brought a ton of memories from my days in Lawrence, KS…….

I also around some time to get away and catch some of the Kansas Jayhawks Basketball tournament game and the Hawks got it done and moved onto the second round……GO JAYHAWKS…….

I also spent some time with several of the Fender Guitar reps and got a cool new t-shirt from them…….

I also found a big outdoor stage with a huge Soundbridge Line Array on it off of west 5th street…….talked to the local sound company and they let me check out their Soundbridge Slice powered Monitor wedges and Drum Fill…….pretty cool……

I fear I am running out of steam and we still have day 6 (the final day of the festival tomorrow) on
Saturday and the load out of the gear on Sunday morning and then the long drive home……

I am gonna need serious sleep next week…….

More tomorrow……
