What to Pack for SXSW 2015!

In two days, Jana and I will be kicking off festival season the best way we know how: By hopping a plane to Austin for SXSW. This city has had a firm grasp on my heart ever since my first visit ten years (!!!) ago for ACL, and it hasn’t let go since, each trip encourages me to fall deeper and deeper in love with the people, the landscape, and of course… the food. (Tacos and coffee are my two major food groups and Austin has both in spades). I know we’re both looking forward to reuniting with this amazing city (+ Julia!), and taking part in this Friday’s #FPFestivalDays music showcase.

Here’s what’s going in our bags as we trade in cloudy Philadelphia for the (hopefully) sunny streets of Austin:
