SXSW - Saturday, March 19 - Continental Club

I don’t even know who these bands are at the moment, but I’m at the airport and wanted to share them with you.  I was at the Continental Club tonight, and, as I begged on Twitter the other day, I just wanted a dark, dingy rock club with some old guys and guitars.  

And that’s precisely what I got tonight!

SXSW - Friday, March 18 - The Palm Door

Dayyyyyyy 3!  

I guess the good thing about this gig is that it’s expanding my ability to shoot different kinds of music.  

The Palm Door last night was a lot of dance, hip-hop, rap, electronic, and several DJs.  The Fool’s Gold family sure puts on a fun show - even if the lighting was bad and I could barely push my way to the stage half the time.

Here we go:

Party Supply:

Telephoned:

The Suzan (ps, these girls from Japan were peppy and simply ADORBZ - and pretty darn good):

SXSW - Wednesday, March 16 - Havana Bar

So it begins!

Last night, I was assigned to the Havana Bar in downtown Austin to shoot what turned out to be two totally separate venues that I was responsible for covering.  Inside were smaller, quirkier bands, and outside in the backyard?  Death metal.  

Let’s just say I am going to search in earnest for earplugs for today to make sure I don’t go completely deaf during this trip.  

Here are a few picks from last night:

Ultrageist:

Chapter 24:

Veil of Maya:

Chips for the Poor:

I shot ten bands last night, so clearly, I’m missing a few in this post.  However, time’s running short this morning - I’m being called in to cover another photog’s shoot this afternoon.  I’ll be at the Dot Com stage in the Austin Convention Center this afternoon from 1-6 and at the Ale House from 8-2.

See you all latah!
