SXSW a whole bunch of SXSW including: A Place to Bury Strangers

I'm just going to dump all the SXSW 2018 into this one post.

Favorite show was A Place to Bury Strangers. We actually saw them twice. I took the whole family along for the second show. #1 Son complained "live music is SOOO boring". I made him a deal, just watch this one band, and I'll take you home.

They came out and assaulted their instruments. The punishment is real. Note the bass player has also damaged his knee in the exchange.

I believe this was their last show of sxsw 2018. The guitar player was down to ONE LAST GUITAR. The pic above was near the end of the set. You can see they are happy, and this was sort of a cue to go ahead and start busting up the guitar, one last time (guitar destruction video below). There was also a point where the bass player did a roundhouse kick and his water bottle went flying, right into the face of the guy standing next to me. He was a good sport about it. He was shooting video on his iPhone when it happened, I hope he posts it.

#1 son could not say it was a boring show.

I didn't try to see as many shows as possible this year. I came home when my wife said it was time to come home. I'm mostly thankful to spend time with family and friends, as seen below.
