Today is the last day of SXSW. Nine days that I was pretty sure were going to destroy my life. I am still alive but I still have one more 14 hour day at the Sailor Jerry House before it’s all over. I also don’t get back to NYC until Tuesday and I am not exactly sure where I am staying or what I am doing until then. Should be interesting.
Anyway, yesterday was another fun day at Gypsy Lounge. Lot’s more free tattoos with Keith Underwood and Philip LaRocca doing dozens and dozens of small Sailor Jerry tattoos. Oliver Peck tattooed a ton of people as well including Big Freedia and my girl Alysha Nett.
On the music side there was good stuff all day including the night time Cultist/Blundertown party that was pretty punk rock all night long. The day party highlight was Fat White Family that featured a dude getting pretty much naked and rolling around in the dirt. My kinda jam. At night I got to see my girls the Coathangers again and it was headlined by a Coach Whips reunion. Coach Whips (fronted by Thee Oh See’s John Dwyer) haven’t played in nearly 10 years and they fucked shit up so hard. It was amazing and I got to shoot the whole show from on stage right behind them as they played in the crowd.
Here are a few photo highlights. One more of these wrap ups tomorrow and then I will start getting this stuff organized so that when I get back to NYC I will be able to start getting the thousands of SXSW photos I have taken over the last 10 days or so…
