sxsw 2010

So SXSW 2010 has come and gone and so here's a bit of a photographic review of the whole thing. It was a really fun year but I did find that my heart just wasn't in it as epicly as it was when we went in 2008. But early spring in Austin is still quite a nice break from early spring in Northern Ontario, I'll tell you that much!!

Drove 25 miles outside of Austin to the Salt Lick BBQ - voted to be one of the top 10 best BBQ's in North America. It was so worth the drive.
I took this picture to show you how big my brisket sammich was in comparison to my can of Dr. Pepper. It was almost the same height. I ate about 1/8 of this beast.

Austin also has a cupcake truck. Pretty genius idea on a chilly Austin day even though the cupcakes are $3!

I was REALLY excited to see Big Star perform at SXSW but unfortunately singer Alex Chilton died on the first day of the conference. They did a memorial panel for him with a couple founding members of the legendary band. It was very moving.

Cheap Trick played. How can you not go and see Cheap Trick????

The SXSW guitar show. I took this picture just for all my boys back home.

Neko Case and Kelly Hogan singing backup for Jakob Dylan. As per usual they were perfection. Jakob Dylan? Meh....

One day we got to take a boatcruise sponsored by SOCAN. Yay for boatcruises on warm sunny days!!

My travel-mates Dennis and Mike along with one of our industry partners.

There were about 20 dogs playing at this dog park - my heart melted.

6th street in downtown Austin.

The Cheap Trick panel. I went and listened to lots of road stories...

Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings at Stubbs - a highlight show for me.

Amelia Curran at the Six Shooter Records party. I love her so....

This is all the stuff I poured out of my delegate bag. Holy paper wastage...

That's about it for now -- it feels like it was 20 years ago so apologies if I've missed something important and super cool!!!
