Here it is, your first night of SXSW 2008!

The night started off at The Rio with Maki Rinka from Japan. I had written several notes about the bans and the song bird, but my boy Mike summed it up best when he said, “There is something about this chick that makes me want to drink vodka martinis extra dirty right out of her belly button”. Classic.

I feel the same way!

We then found oursleves at Club 115 for Pataphysics. They definitely put on an animated and amazingly fun show. They are from the ATX, and I had been wanting to see them for a long time, and I finally got my chance. The electro ass shakin rock stars wore some crazy ass hats too, doesn’t get much better than that!

After Pat, we made out way to Lambert’s, great food by the way, to see Hank IV and The Golden Boys! Hank IV was loud and at this point I was eating asprin and drinking club soda. Ouchers, they hurt my ears! The Golden Boys, my fave local rockers these days, were sick! They rock.

note: you cannot see it in this pic, but the drummer had a wad of tissue sticking out of his nostril in true rock star fashion. Need I say anymore?

Then, I took a cab home and continued the party there w/ random folks dropping by until the wee hours.

Tonight, I am not sure what my plans are, but here are some folks that I am interested in…

New Monsoon (rock)
Texas Eastside Kings (blues)

and there were some others…we will see where the night takes me. I am taking it easy tonight cuz my girl Heather is coming in tomorrow to get down w/ me. And let me tell you kids, homegirl gets down…all night long!

It’s time for me to take a shower and get ready…again. The world is waiting for me out there.
