SXSW Day 6. Johnny 2 gigs

SXSW Day 6. Johnny 2 gigs

I got back into the British music embassy a bit later than expected (it’s taking me a lot longer to get places than  I think it should) but just in time to meet a Canadian publicist and Australian design agency director at a speed networking event. 2pm quickly comes around and the venue is packed […]

SXSW Day 5. Late Pancakes, Springs and Welsh Music in a church

I’m hoping that my body clock and sleeping patterns are so thrown up and sideways right now, that when I get back to the UK, I’ll sleep so well I’ll be right as rain for work Monday morning. Stranger things have happened. Which is how I had a 2pm breakfast (despite waking at 9am) in […]

SXSW Day 4. Mary, Meetings, Cameras, Fans & Tradegy

South by takes over this town, for good and not. It clearly brings an overwhelming focus and celebration of creativity to the town and generates a huge level of excitement and revenue, but also it seems a strain on the area and it’s resources. Initially I couldn’t make it to town for a networking breakfast […]

SXSW day 3. Film, chill and bands (finally)

Waking up I promised myself no migas taco for breakfast. So I hopped on the metro rail ( unfortunately not a monorail as I had initially thought) after the ticket machine swallowed up 7dollars of my change and went in search of city treasure thrift. It was underwhelming, so I decided to stop in Cisco’s […]

SXSW Day2 . Old Aquaintences, Tequila and Busses

So, although I intended to get an early night, I couldn’t get to sleep until 2 am then woke up again at 4 until finally passing out at about 7. I’m not used to insomnia and pulling myself out of bed at 11am was a struggle. I don’t normally get jet lag going back in […]

SXSW Day 1. Acclimatizing

After being woken by a bird (I presume) that sounded like a Guinea pig, and not being able to figure out how to use the coffee machine I headed out to explore the ‘hood. I picked up a coffee and a migas taco and walked west toward downtown via the Blanton museum of art. Housing […]

Going South

South by South West is one of those events that has been on my ‘one day’ wishlist for a few years now, but the excuse to fly over to Texas for a week of music, crowds, tacos and sun has always eluded me. that is until this year. Flights are booked and a house share […]

Week–a–Gig–a–Thon

It’s October! Unofficially the busiest time of the year. In the space if a month, Cardiff plays host to the Cardiff design festival, the welsh music prize, made in Roath, Swn festival, Cardiff contemporary, some of these in the same weeks! Usually on the week of Swn, like clockwork I’m guaranteed to have a cold, […]

Dr Sketchy’s Cream Tease

Dr Sketchy’s / 21 june 2012 Held at various venues around the world, Dr. Sketchy’s offers up an ‘anti-art school’ experience, giving those who like to dip their nibs in ink a life drawing class with a difference. When I was at art school there was plenty of drink and dames, but not much life […]
