day two sxsw 2010, night time, back stage with brady

at the beginning of sxsw day one, I was demonstrating a new iphone app by go-time called "happy hours" from Village Voice.  when I opened the app I received an announcement, I had won $20 bar tab at max's wine dive!  so next evening... we went to max's

we had some sangria, some pork belly and wild board pasta.

then we made our way over to cedar street courtyard to meet up with our friend brady.  it was VERY cold while we waited out front.  we ducked into the absinthe bar next door, peche.

knowing from past sxsw experiences, this is a busy time for mr blade.  we were prepared to be patient for him to text us back with our backstage entry instructions.  we were surprised when he got right back to us.  he instructed us to meet him asap.  we had to slam those fancy absinthe drinks and run out the back door to meet brady in the alley.

I spent some quality time with exene cervenka.

I also got to spend some time catching up with someone from the neighborhood, chatted with robin while her husband jimmie vaughan finished his set.  then I had to get my camera back from kat.  she loves to push that button, looks like we'll be in the market for a second camera body...

 on the kick drum...

one, two, three and JUMP!

hanging out with brady is one of the highlights of sxsw for us.  besides his various drumming gigs, he was in town to promote his new recording studios.  I also got to meet his business partner scott crompton.
