Austin Rockin’ Weekend

March 25, 2009 at 10:10 pm 6 comments

I had the best time last weekend in Austin during SXSW being a good groupie for my punk rock husband. Saw lots of old friends, ate great food, did a little shopping on South Congress and of course, the music was fantastic

We stayed in the hills


at a friend’s gorgeous house


I saw the Nervebreakers twice with Mike rocking out on guitar


we saw Phil Lee, a friend from North Carolina, perform


enjoyed the company of two cats at the house where we stayed,
but only this guy would pose for me


went shopping on South Congress at Tesoros
and came home with an embroidered appliqued
black & white cat pillow from India.
A perfect weekend indeed.

    Looks like a great time! My sister and her hubby are both musicians living in Austin. I’ve never been, but hope to visit there soon!

    If the cat had a black bugger on his face it would look like Nicolas.

    I meant to say booger no bugger.

    This was the first year in a while that I didn’t go to SXSW. I really would’ve loved to see both of you. If you go next year, let me know. If I can make it there, I’d like to get together.

    …just saw the photos with Mike and Phil performing together. Man, I would’ve loved to have caught that!
