SXSW 2008 - My Experience
SXSW 2008 - My Experience
03/16/08 at 12:46 PM by NationalProduct
So, im sitting on this beautiful lake in Austin right now called Lake Travis. I didnt even know Austin had lakes yet alone one named Travis, so since im in Texas I immediately think of Terminal, my favorite band from Dallas. I know they are a few hours apart but thats ok.

I wanted to tell you about my SXSW experience.

We just finished the PLANO Fest which was incredible minus all the puke that would not stop coming out of my body. There was a few thousand kids rocking to almost every band and we got to meet and watch some incredible bands. Ill mention some right now...

Four Letter Lie - amazing live show, super tight and alot of fun

A Sky Lit Drive - drummer has a sick style, singer has highs that remind me of 80's hair metal

yeah man I wanted to catch a skylit drive with their new singer (Jag I think is his name?) but seeing Anthony Green was really cool, and the band he played with at his solo shows, the castles, were amazing! Real chill but all 3 guys have voices like angels. Glad to see you had a good time, aside from getting sick. Good review man

four letter lie wasnt sxsw only chiodos was, and too be honest, i went from being a band playing it, to deciding i was going to just enjoy watching bands instead. no schedule, i didnt plan to see any of the bands, they just happened to be playing right next to the bar i was at, so there was no way of knowing where any bands were playing or who was playing. trust me, if i had a schedule, i would have seen alot more bands, however on the fly, im not disappointed with anything i saw, if its not your bag of tea thats cool however i had a great time
