Sailor Jerry House in Austin kicked off in ernest with it’s first full day event. The Grandstand day party featured a headlining set by my pals the Coathangers and a bunch of rad rock and roll bands. I really dug the band Soft White Sixtes particularly.
The Third Man Rolling Record store was parked at our Gypsy Lounge location and it fueled speculation that Jack White was going to show up. He clearly did not, but it was a fun rumor. Keith Underwood and Philip Larocca did free tattoos all day inside the bar and Oliver Peck tattooed bands in the airstream trailer out back.
The night party was the She Shreads magazine party and it was nothing but awesome bands with rock and roll ladies killing it. My buddies Alex and Francis from White Mystery played late but I had to take off early because I slept less than three hours last night and needed to get to bed. They are playing again at the Sailor Jerry House on Saturday so I will get to see them soon.
I was exhausted all fucking day but I had a good time anyway. I finally got some sleep last night so today should be even better. Hope to see some more friends and I hope everyone is okay after the insane car accident in Austin last night.
