SXSW 2014: Surviving Another Guantlet

20140313_214703

Okay, I was at SXSW this year again and that’s the only thing I’m really thankful for this go around.  Yes, I saw some great bands.  Yes, I wore my feet out walking all over the place.  And, considering what happened in front the Mohawk, I seriously survived.

So was it worth it?  It always is.  This year saw some firsts.  First time I saw a band twice (Damon Albarn).  First time I didn’t drink for a day (har har).  And first time my camera messed up in the middle of a festival.  Well both of them.

I had to make due with what I had so here’s some video.  Some from my camera and some from my phone.  The pictures are over on the Face book Page.  Check it out the videos:
