Overheard: SXSW Thursday Afternoon

Woman asking for directions:

"You know, that one fuckin' venue all the way down there?"

A couple guys waiting outside Stubb's:

"Those windows are already broken. You should break the other two." "Well, I'm tall enough. I've got enough scars on my hands, though." "You can't have too many. Bare fist it, dude."

Someone passing the verrry long line for Motorhead:

"Who's playing?" "Motorhead." "No, seriously. .... Whoa. You're shitting me! Motorhead?"

A couple searching for food:

"I won't touch that pizza. I hear it's heinous."
