Austin Party Train Goes Marchin’ In

Hello my little spring chickens —

I am hoping this weather is here to stay but I think that might be a tad unrealistic. The good news about working from home is that I get to enjoy the fab weather. The bad news is that I’m always 50 feet away from my bed and the urge to nap is a constant battle. However, I’m managing to power through that with diet cokes and an overwhelming amount of work. This week is one of the last before your life gets flipped upside down by that little music festival commonly referred to as SouthBy. So if you want to see some sweet peeps — Walt Wilkins, Bonnie Bishop, Glassjaw, Suzanna Choffel, Junior Brown, Gals Panic, Dropkick, State Radio, Patricia Vonne, Malford, Gals Panic, Gary Clark — then do it now.
