rest, meeting //tense//, the commonwealth show @ lanai, prince sun arawma show at brave new books, magic mushrooms. on lo-fi/broken camera gear and with bad captions.
last day of southby and spent the first half sleeping and resting off the prior three days. spent the night and subsequent day at tommyboy/mike survive’s place, where various musicians were staying. hung w //tense//, mariana having played the night before in four different projects. also met jose from sleeper hold who used to be in medio mutante with her. so much creative energy. this is mike from survive’s home studio.
new umberto, who i’d sadly missed that day much of the gear was homemade / modded.
headed downtown to catch the pop manifesto / acephale / transparent show. had just missed pure x. caught jamie woon. scene was really nice… rooftop, perfect weather. free drank. the #supermoon was out. dinner. laurel halo joined the bill last minute and truly tore it up. another guest played after her: the counting crows. yes, for real. missed the photo op.
met the hippos in tanks homies. chillest dudes. great vibes at brave new books, closing out sxsw with thousand foot whale claw, nike7up and the pairing of prince rama and sun araw. taco run. prince sun arawma. an unreal pairing. heavy heavy heavy. record to drop soon. met these dudes who had been following this photo journo. super cool dudes. the show went late. people passing out left and right. i feel you, bro. quilt VIBE-HUT. thousand foot whale claw. sounding VAST. nike7up ending things on a dark and visceral note.
