SXSW Highlights: A Pictorial of Music and Breakfast
April 11, 2011 at 3:32 pm DevoLT
It's SXSW all day every day at Stubb's in Austin. At least until the Gospel Brunch.
Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs means business at the Other Music Lawn Party at French Legation on Friday, March 18
A horn section is always a good idea. These two played with tUnE-yArDs at French Legation as part of Other Music's Lawn Party.
tUnE-yArDs were the perfect band to play at Other Music's Lawn Party at French Legation. Lots of sun and grass and a big blue sky were the perfect backdrop for songs both old and new.
James Blake drew a huge crowd at the French Legation for Other Music's Lawn Party.
The Lawn Party's tent was filled with cloth flags--and lots of people. James Blake and his band impressed sxsw-goers with their stark brand of synth music.
Kurt Vile was obscured by his long hair most of the time, but at Club Deville he played a good mix of songs from his new album, Smoke Ring for My Halo.
Despite some technical issues with sound, and our vision being blocked by the dude in the green hat, Brooklyn's own Glasser played a lively set of songs from her debut Ring at Club Deville.
Since her sound equipment died at the end of her set, Glasser finished up with a beautiful a capella song.
And how could we not mention the breakfast tacos? More than one trip was made to Taco Deli, where many breakfast tacos were consumed. This one is the El Popeye, with spinach, egg, and queso fresco.
Taco Deli lets you choose your taco fillings if you desire. This is the potato, bean, and cheese selection.
This is the Jess Special; a Migas taco with fresh avocado and cheese!
There are lots more photos after the jump!
