It’s been a busy week and I’m glad to be back to a normal schedule. Usually I have the worst post-SXSW blues, upset about going back to a normal life of work, packed lunches, and exercise, but this is probably a sign that I’m finally growing up. I also took a more passive approach to the festival instead of working myself through crowds and lines to see every band possible.
I shared all of my favorite moments on SnapChat and Instagram, so hopefully you were following along at home. Some of my favorite moments were seeing Years & Years three times (!!!) and being surprised by how fun the AWOLNATION show was (yeah, I’m a total bro). I also saw: Marina and the Diamonds, Alvvays, Big Dipper, VÉRITÉ, Cathedrals, Gorgon City, ASTR, Tove Styrke, and Twin Shadow.
Of course there were plenty of things I’ll forever regret missing, but life’s too short for that nonsense. Every year I say that next year I’ll invest in a badge and make my life a little easier. So once again, next year I’m definitely getting a badge.
