I’m back from South By Southwest, but I think a part of me is still in Austin. Every time I go I fall more in love with the city, and even though it’s a little bit chaotic during SXSW it’s an amazing experience. I spent three days taking one of our Heart Strings guitars from place, getting it signed by musicians (more on that tomorrow), all the while making some awesome new friends and hearing some incredible live music.
The set up for Gary Clark Jr. at the Yours Truly house – they rented a house a little ways north of downtown and it was such a sweet place with wood paneling, a chicken coop, records and an old piano.
Making breakfast for Lee Fields & The Expressions before their morning set at the YT house.

South by San Jose at the Hotel San Jose, one of my favorite spots in Austin.
I loved the Laced with Romance booth at the San Jose.
On Thursday night Yours Truly had a showcase at the Hype Hotel downtown, with performances by THEESatisfaction, Korallreven and Jimmy Cliff among others. It was a blast, and amazing to be just a couple of feet away from Jimmy Cliff.
Post Alabama Shakes in Yours Truly’s Backyard (more on them and their show tomorrow!).
My faves…the guys from Yours Truly.
More to come!
