SXSW Day 1

So on Wednesday, 3/16/2011, we started off at Beauty Bar for the second half of Ty Segall. After that we stayed there for the Obits.

After that we headed over to La Zona Rosa to get in line for the awesome Rolling Stone party lineup. Started with Beast Make Bomb. I had never heard them before. They were alright.

Next up was J Mascis. This show was really great. I had never heard any of his solo stuff. I really, really liked it alot.

Next up was Mini Mansions. I didn't actually get any photos from this show. They were interesting though. I've never seen a band where the drummer is the lead singer and he actually stands at the front of the stage playing drums. The Black Angels were up next. I was already a pretty big Black Angels fan and have seen them a handful of times. They did not disappoint. They put on a really great show. And then of course, last but not least, Queens of the Stone Age. I had never seen them live before. Wow. I am such a fan now. I was unaware Josh Homme was such a dirty guy. And I don't mean his hygiene. And I got to watch the show with one of my best friends who is a HUGE QOTSA fan. :)

Wednesday was a very long day, and I managed not to get hammered.
