The weekend is over and it will take weeks for all the dust to clear out of my body but it was worth it. By the end of Sunday night I had rolled on 15 bands in just 3 days, that’s on pace with SXSW the last couple of years.

SATURDAY

Atmosphere had the best show of the festival in my humble hip hop head opinion. Things took an interesting turn when one of guitar player Nate Collis’s strings broke and Slug was forced to improvise but they pulled it off nicely.

Later that night we followed the Rhymesayer’s crew over to Ruta Maya’s to see Blueprint and Abstract Rude do their thing backed by DJ Rare Groove. About 1:50 in the am, after Ant and Slug nearly took the side door off its hinges trying to get back inside due to the beat Rare Groove had just dropped, Slug joined Blueprint and Abstract Rude on stage for an impromptu cypher.

You should have been there. If you where there you should have stayed til the end.

All in all, Saturday was great.

SUNDAY

The Clipse tore it up for almost a full hour with hits from their catalog. Backstage I mistook Ab-Liva as Pusha’s Bodygaurd. I felt like an ass, he said it happens all the time.

A suprise Sunday afternoon was Starlynx / Big Face on Stage 4. They had a live marching band style drum line, very cool.

Reminded me of the days walking back to the Reagan campus after a football game at Nelson Field

I also can’t wait to pull up the faders on the Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears set. For 2 PM there was a sizable crowd and they were not disappointed.
