SXSW is a veritable smorgasbord of music- there are shows at auditoriums, in bars, back yards, street corners, churches, alley ways, hotel rooms…pretty much anywhere you can think of at every second of the day. I landed on Wednesday evening and headed straight out to Duran Duran (girls on film! the chauffeur! hungry like a wolf!), but the surprise highlight of the week may have been Austra who opened for the Kills at the Domino Records showcase. These girls have moves, and I’m quite sure everyone (and I do mean everyone) fell in love that night. Definitely keep an eye our for these Toronto up and comers and take a listen to their album.
Below are some of my personal highlights:
Simon Le Bon!
Weekend playing at the Insound showcase
Pitchfork x Christianity
Dancer @ Big Freedia
Alison Mosshart of The Kills
Dan Deacon at StyleCaster
Hunx and His Punx
Tim of the Fresh and Onlys
My only regret is not getting to see more of Austin on this whirlwind trip. I’ll definitely be heading back soon for a proper tour…and perhaps some serious vintage shopping. Stay tuned for SXSW Street Style!

At Siege’s Mardi Gras birthday party a couple weekends ago I met a sweet lovely boy named Paul from Austin, Texas. Paul was in town for a bunch of Christeene shows, his performance moniker. I heard Christeene was a crazy ass bitch, but after meeting him out of character I was convinced it couldn’t be too raunchy.
I was wrong.

I liked it so nice, I saw Christeene twice.
Both shows were with Big Freedia, who I think actually showed less ass than Christeene (no easy feat). As she would say; WURK DAT STANKHOLE GIRRRLLL. You killed it! Make sure to come back to see us in NYC real soon.
