I am the walking dead.......
I got rug burn in the photo pit at the Pete Townsend keynote interview, every toe has a blister from the endless hiking up and down 6th Street and my voice is but a memory.
The Pete Townsend keynote was amazing. The scene during our 2 minutes of papparazi-like shooting was mayhem. After that I did sit down and listen to what Pete had to say and quite enjoyed it. He is a musical genius, and he is a living legend after all.
I heard through the grapevine that Pete did show up at the Austin Music awards, and the dumbass that I am, I didn't go. It had been leaked to us that he would be there, but I just didn't want to believe it and I couldn't imagine sitting for 2 1/2 hours hoping the rumours were true.
I did journey to 6th St. and see lots of bands. Stand outs for me were Lemon Sun, X-Wife, and probably the best band at South By, the Zico Chain.
Sleep was once my friend. Now it mocks me.
