So, this is also what Austin is like during SXSW. I have no idea what that light-up structure is these people are dancing on, but it’s in some kind of public square. This was 3 o’clock in the morning, and I also have no clue where this music was even coming from.

Pony Up!

Man, Pony Time is a fun band to see live—especially in a cramped, dank barroom in Texas. According to their website, the Seattle band’s two members, Luke Beetham and Stacy Peck were “drawn together by almost zero common musical interests and a shared love of South Park, this was a band that couldn’t fail.” Well, they rocked…

Mary Lambert in the afternoon

Though at the moment she’s best known for guesting on Macklemore’s “Same Love,” Mary Lambert took a break from appearing with everyone’s favorite white rapper to do a set of her own. “I’ve always wanted to come to SXSW,” the Cornish College grad told the crowd in Austin’s Brush Square Park. “I ever since I saw…

I dropped by Maggie Mae’s on Austin’s 6th Street (aka, at 1 a.m., the Lone Star Gomorrah) to see Allen Stone.

The boys of Rose Windows were in fairly good spirits Thursday afternoon, considering their singer, Rabia Shaheen Qazi, was in the hospital.

“Right now, she’s on IV and they’re waiting for the x-rays,” said guitarist Nils Petersen. But the Seattle band still had four days in town, and were in good spirits that her as-yet-undiagnosed ailment would clear up, hopeful that they’d get to play at least some of their scheduled performances in Austin.

Video: Macklemore more more at SXSW

He is so gorgeous!” said a slightly sauced Austin woman behind me. She was there to see everyone’s favorite Seattlite of the moment, Ryan Lewis! Kidding, she was there to see Macklemore. Well, both of them, technically. By 12:30, she and the rest of the capacity crowd at Antone’s was more than ready. And Macklemore didn’t disappoint….
