I still have a ton more photos from the Sailor Jerry South By Southwest madness, but let’s take a break before we get back to it. On Thursday Check Yo Ponytail, Mad Decent and Fool’s Gold all threw a huge party at two venues in Austin. Part of the show was at Emo’s East and the rest was a parking lot away at Emo’s Annex. Tons of bands, tons of DJ’s and a ton of fun.
I got a quick break from the Sailor Jerry party so I ran over to the Super Party and in about two hours I got to shoot Trash Talk, Wavves, Brooke Candy and Andrew WK. I was psyched to shoot Trash Talk because last year my flash got broken during their very first song so I couldn’t take any pictures. I saw Wavves for the first time last year and they were awesome so it was good to see them again. I am kinda obsessed with photographing Brooke Candy and I hope I get to do it again soon. I have shot Andrew WK a number of times but he always makes for good pictures. On the way back to the SJ party I got stuck in traffic and abandoned my rental car up a hill in the middle of bumper to bumper traffic. Somehow the ticket was only $30. God I love Austin.
Later that night I was waiting on friends and I had some time to kill so I went back to the parties. I hit Flosstradamus, Pictureplane and then A-Trak right as my friends arrived. I only shot about 30 seconds of A-Trak but I have photographed him maybe 200 times so I think it’s okay. The whole party was a good time and I am glad I got to check out a little bit of it. I hope you guys the pictures.
