Austin sure knows how to get their party on. I’ve been down at SXSW since Tuesday and I’m not sure I’ve ever had so much SoCo, slept so little and met so many awesome people (not to mention hang out with so many ex-vancouver patriots). Since words can never do it justice, I took a bunch of pictures to try and get the rad-ness that is Austin out to the rest of the world…
Stay tuned for more..
I love all the bats by the bridge in austin
I made it to austin finally. For those of you following my twitter this might be little redundant but anyways. On Monday night I was in south padre island DJing at Mooncussers which was great, the club is huge! There was probably about 1200 people in there and I had a blast. Anyways Zar and the McAllen crew took me to another epic afterparty and I ended up leaving at like 5am. My flight to Austin was supposed to be at 8am so I basically wasnt gonna be sleeping if I got on the plane.
Lucky for me my McAllen homegirls Megan and Ashley were headed up to Austin as well and were down to drive me. So I just passed out in the hotel room and met up with them around 3. What I failed to realize though is that austinis like 6hrs from South Padre Island. That made for a long day but at least I got some work done via blackberry. I finally locked in all the details for the new weekly in April, i’ll keep you posted of course but it’s gonna be really exciting!
Anyways if you’re out in austin i’m gonna be playing with some homies today over at this “shipwrecked” party today. Feel free to come on over and say hello, it’s gonna be my first time in a while where I actually get to play stuff I like. So expect a lot of bass haha.
My favorite new wobbly bass Track: Bwomp – See Ya Soon downloadable!
Also just got an email about this event in LA on the 21st looks like fun. Especially if you’re trying to step your streetwear game up on the cheap.
Yooooo so i’ve been a bit out of commission, sorry bout that. Been busy as all hell. But today I got a little break went to Ikea and had this song stuck in my head the whole time.
Paul McCartney – Temporary Secretary (Radio Slave Edit)
In other news the erol alkan message board had a “make a trance song with all presets” contest as a joke. So me and a bunch of people made crappy little trance songs with all presets. Mine took about 30 minutes and is fucking random but you might get a laugh.
DJ Skiesto – Chord Play
DJ Skeet Skeet
Dominique Webb – Hypnose (instrumental)
Also if you havent sign up for the Newslettter ——–>
I’m abou to send out the list of all the parties im playing and how to get in.
I was kind of bummed I didn’t go this year. This video from last year makes up for it.
Denise and Anas hotel room circa 5am. We have already been threatened to be kicked out twice by hotel security. They are back knocking at the door. Classic.
This was my first SxSW and it was cool cause Totally Radd!! got a couple of fun shows super last minute (Thanks Ana), and we were also able to play some shows there and on the way back (tomorrow).Â Â
Highlights Â include:
+Our new keyboard player Michael Gold joining the band last week, busting his ass learning the licks and absolutely killing it on his first shows with us.
+Superstar treatment at The Mirage and then someone buying crackrock and getting into fights.
+Running into Katy Perry at a BBQ joint early in the day… and then at the same bbq place that night. wat? Plus she likes Dr. Pepper! Sick!
+Only going to parties thrown by people I know in LA filled with pretty much mostly people from LA cause they’re the only parties I could get into without money or a badge.
+Stealing 5 whole bottles of booze on three separate occasions from the same bar over two nights.Â
+Fist fighting with my bandmates during television interviews.
+Biting Rob’s tongue really hard.Â Â
+Getting banned from an un-named club in Austin cause one of my bandmates may or may not have pissed on their floor.
+Alex Greenwald and Cory Nitta being awesome dudes and letting me crash at their places at 5am on Friday and Saturday.
+Sleeping in the back of some pickup truck one night with Anarchy John and some Dewar’s.
+All around poor planning and fun adventures.Â
AND ITS NOT OVER. We play Phoenix tomorrow then I’m finally home. Plus Lucy’s in LA and I’m so ready to hang out with her.Â
First. SxSw was insane. Like crazy. Like a lot of work, and a lot of fun and a lot of Random moments.

+ Bushwick Bill Crashing our Show and rapping over Southern Hospitality with Shwayze
+ Blu Jemz squabbing with the owner of “The Marq” who also happens to be one of the “Bachelors” from the show the “Bachelor” haha
+ Blu Jemz getting in a squab cuz he (unaware of any bachelor show) says “I don’t want to fight you, i saw you on Elimidate”

+ Joe Simpson (Of birthing ashlee and jessica fame) Being one of the COOLEST PEOPLE EVER. No bullshit amazing
+ Katy Perry Rocking Perez Party like a pro.
+ N.E.R.D. has 2 drummers a track, metal amps, and is the heaviest show i’ve seen since converge last year.
+ The four seasons burgers at 3am so on point.
anyways back to reality. i’m in Salt Lake City, tomorrow i got to Acapulco to play weds/thurs then fri/saturday i play dallas and houston.
This is some hilarious shit. Myspace movie about a murder rave?
This is how serious all of this madness is. Basically i’m exhausted, exhausted, exhausted already but i’m having so much fun. Today Mad Decent / Iheartcomix partay yaaaaa.
So cisco and I were supposed to leave yesterday at 7:40am on Virgin… time change, going out, and blackout curtains put an end to that idea real quick. So luckily we were able to reschedule for today at 9:30am, I woke up at 8:40 and we’re in midtown fuck fuck fuck.
It’s kind of incredible because I slept through the unfadeable blackberry alarm which never lets me down. I even skipped Beatrice last night so i’d definitely get up and go back. And we were flying the best airline ever VIRGIN AMERICA so how i fucked this one up twice i’ll never know. Anyways now we’ll probably just fly straight to texas and hope everything works out at sxsw. Shit Shit Shit, I guess NYC just doesn’t want us to leave.
whateverzzz all i’m thinking right now is…
Cause God blessed Texas with His own hand
Brought down angels from the promised land
Gave ‘em a place where they could dance
If you wanna see heaven brother here’s your chance
I’ve been sent to spread the message
God blessed Texas
I have seen her a bunch of times, but never talked to her. I was Cobrasnaking for Mark at SXSW. I took photos of her and Spankrock performing. After the show, me and Matt Colon are standing out in front of the party. The boys start talking. She is standing right next to me. I just turn to her and go â€œI love you.â€ The two of them sort of try to keep talking and pretend I am not being that weird. She makes a good attempt to not look at me like I am totally insane and says thanks. She probably doesnâ€™t remember. Hopefully, she doesnâ€™t remember. I have had a bunch of â€œI thought I saw you at *said* party/show, but it was Amanda Blankâ€ messages from friends. But, I just donâ€™t buy it. She is way cooler than me. Even if we sort of look alike, she is probably standing around being cool, while I am tripping and falling attempting to walk up the stairs. She is all pretty smiling for some photo. While, Mark Hunter is trying to put my boob back in my dress so he can take a picture of me.
Plus, she can rap and I just talk really fast.
