Crowds have never been my most favorite thing. I am a 6’4″ big guy that really hates to be the guy everyone bumps into. But on the flip-side, being tall does have its benefits. I can always see a show, clothes look good on me, I get noticed (that can be a good and bad thing) and I always have a view and fresh air.
Walking around Austin during SxSw became old, quick. Tons of People, drunk people, everywhere. At one point in my life, that would of been a sales point but not so much anymore. My lovely girl suggested that we head towards ‘Rainey ‘ in another part of Austin that had live music and was away from the shit-show on 6th. We dodged pedi-cabs, drunk teens and ended up a bar called The Bungalow. It first appeared as a douchy martini bar at first sight until we hit the backyard, it had a good stage, tables and chairs and a taco truck which made for perfect conditions for me.
We had know idea who or what was going to play there. We ONLY went in this joint because we signed up for RSVPster service and remembered that we saw this place listed.
On a side note, Be careful about signing up for that kind of service, after 458 VIP RSVP’s to parties we had no guarantee for entrance, it started to become a joke. Now I am on every email list of every vendor that hosted a party. 3o buck not well spent. But it did confuse the doorman enough that we got in. 30 buck well spent.
We really did not care who was playing. On the stage was very little equipment, kind of unusual from what I have seen so far that day. So up comes the Titi Robin Trio.
With my taco in hand and a cold beer, we watched apprehensively. Then these three dudes started play the hell out of everything they put their hands on, I was hooked.
Out of all the music I saw that weekend, these guys were in my top 3! I had no idea that they even existed before I need to seek refuge from the hoards. God bless being easily irritated, I always discover the best things with that condition.
P.S What is up with that box that guy is playing? Freaking awesome.
P.S.S Always remember that all this was shot on my iPhone. poorly and were kept short in respect to the artist.
