Messy hair. Tired eyes. Sore feet. Have you been at SXSW?

           I’m writing this at my desk and to put it plainly, my hips hurt and my back hurts and I need a marathon sleep session…but not before I make a note of things I need to do next year to make it better.  Here is a list of some things I DID do.

I drunk some beer, mostly Fireman’s ale but also indulged on Shiner. Thanks, Yahoo for the FREE beer.

Ate Bar-B-Que at an underrated spot called Blue Ribbon.

Ate Fried Chicken at Gus’s and Enchiladas at Amaya’s,  both hit the spot.

Sang along to “Hey there, Delilah” and “Trap Queen” within a couple hours of each other.

Saw 3 Folk bands at obscure venues.

Hit a “No Flex Zone” while stuck in traffic with Rae Sremmurd

Saw Riff Raff tell a fan that he couldn’t take a pic because “I have to go eat, get them gains”

Didn’t come close to seeing Incubus……. at all….

Almost got to see Sam Hunt and Jackie Green, bummed about both.

Jarren Benton performed his ass off.

             This past weekend had a different vibe, to me it felt a bit nostalgic and i’m sure the rain had a lot to do with the calmness of it all but none the less,  I enjoyed it.

             Some of the parties and events that are never an option in recent years were an option this year, for instance the Yahoo party which is usually out of the question had great events this year that were able to be enjoyed. The Fader Fort was another event that was said to be less packed then in recent years or at least felt that way. The food was over priced and the drinks were too but just like any other year, free beer is an option if you look hard enough.

             The women mostly looked uncomfortable, I met a couple gorgeous school teachers, met a gorgeous stripper (I’m guessing) from New Orleans and met an older lady at the Young Thug show that looked like Dr.Quinn the Medicine Woman and randomly asked me if I liked Goodie Mob, then told me how she had a friend that wore green jeans and loved the song “Greeny Green”. S/O to the girl in the red dress who spilled red wine all on the back of Script’s shirt & didn’t tell anybody, it made for a good laugh when we left the show, haha.

             I will be on to another festival next month, in Florida, and will probably have more interesting stories but something about being in Austin and the energy of SXSW that keeps us coming back… oh yeah, the expensive food and uncomfortable looking woman don’t hurt.

Shows & Events: “SXSW KICK-OFF” in Ft Worth, Tx

      On March 14th something is gonna happen at the cellar in Fort Worth,Texas.

        It will be an exciting night with artist from Central Texas linking up with artist from Ft. Worth and Dallas to cause chaos.

      Fort Worth’s own Callie Dee and Right Round Productions, along with North Texas’ Gitmo Music, are putting this together and the plan is to have a (FREE) hip-hop filled night to celebrate and thank everyone for the support in helping us make SXSW. The OOAK family and myself will head up I-35 with no intentions on letting anyone down, it’s always good to come back to a place that has showed so much love. I’m ready show off this new show that we’ve been working on, it’s different than in the past and I’m excited to see the reaction, we took a more musical approach, while there will still be times where everyone loses their minds, there will also be time to just enjoy the vibe and music….. FOR FREE!!!

     The OOAK team will be joined by the usual suspects Pirscription and Duce D,  who always bring a high energy and lyrical aspect to their show, and this one will be no different. This time however, Script and Duce are previewing some new songs as they start gearing up for the release of their collaborative mixtape Closed Caskets. Along with the aforementioned there will also be some great talent from the metroplex like Illizem, Jah Tree, Naomi, D’Labrie, Lo, and Duke; with the DJ of the night being DJ Orbt. Oh, and did i mention that the show was FREE?!!?

     We hope to see you there, whether it be to support myself (JLD), Pirscription, Duce D, the Ft Worth acts, or just to have a good time. Either way, we look forward to the trip, and hope to see you ALL there… excpecially since its FREE!! .. lol

SXSW 2015… Are you ready?

sxsw-blogpic

      Every March, musicians do whatever they have to do to find a way to Austin,Tx for what is billed as the largest Music festival of its kind, South by Southwest.

        What started in 1987 as a local attraction has now become the place to be if you are a musician or have anything to do with music for that matter. In the past years we have done whatever it takes to take advantage of the close to home festival, and have done everything from sleep in cars and pack 10 deep in hotel rooms, to renting a 2 story house for the entire week of SX!

     This year, again, OOAK and JLD will be making the trek down I-35 to be apart of the festivities and I’ve personally noticed the exponential growth of the event which comes with it’s pros and cons. When I was there in 2009 I felt like it had a very laid back artist friendly vibe and the artist were able to hang out and mingle or do freestyle cyphers a lot more freely, but, as with anything, growth has it’s advantages and disadvantages. Attendance hasn’t been hampered, neither has the slew of artist that head to SXSW every year. This year there are rumored to be less “un-official” events and stricter restrictions on events overall, and everybody is waiting to see if it kills the vibe that SXSW has created, or if we will like it even more than the previous years. But either way, lets be honest, how do you put alcohol, pretty women, great music, street tacos and Austin together and not expect it to be an amazing time?

    As we get closer to SXSW we will be focusing on different aspects of the event, peoples stories, food and information on events we think are interesting.
