  • Sunday, March 22

  • 9:38 PM cashless - Had a GREAT time at SXSW with some of the best people alive.

RECAP: Despite my utter lack of scheduling, and preparation, I still managed to eek out a great time in slightly less than 36 hours. We did however run into some technical issues during that time, most notably when the battery of my G1 died shortly after arriving at the Fader Fort. So I wasn’t able to blog/tweet much about the great performances of Bun B, Jadakiss, the entire G.O.O.D. Music family featuring Kanye West or the Diplo/Blaqstarr I Heart Comix afterparty. Actually, by the time that Kanye hit the stage I was on triple stage inebriation and probably couldn’t have posted much to begin with. It was a short trip, lasting only a day and a half, but possibly one of the best music conference trips I’ve gone on since my first. Shout out to DBDR.
