At The Village Voice Media SXSW Showdown and...Fireworks!
And the hommmme of the...
Bones and walls are rattling. There's thundering everywhere!
The bass thunder is coming from the Village Voice Media SXSW party, which kicked-off 'round 5 p.m. with the awesome rock of Ume and will continue with Trae Tha Truth, Yelawolf, Fishbone, and Wu-Tang Clan (!!). We're sitting next to the Houston Press folks right now, who are liveblogging the whole night. Nice.
Speaking of awesome: fireworks.
We ventured onto the Austin Music Hall 3rd floor for a little breeze and caught some sky 'splosions after The Strokes wrapped up their show by Ladybird Lake. Very cool.
