Image of Austin Live: SXSW

SXSW (aka South by Southwest) is a huge annual festival  that occurs in Austin.

It is a defining element of the flavor of Austin – a blend of film, music, and technology – in an atmosphere of defined comaraderie and exploration by thousands of like-minded travelers from all over – including Austinites!

While the event showcases much more than music, it is the music that I am most passionate about. So, when I go, that is what I focus on. That, and the flair that accompanies it – the people, the places, the things. One more reason I love Austin!

Trailer food park 2

Just one of the trailer food parks in Austin – this one is specifically for SXSW. When you go, make sure to try the Chocolate Truffles, and other tasty treats, at Boteca!

Cantina lunch

For a unique blend of Tex-Mex cuisine, try Licha’s Cantina. The Ceviche and the Pastor-Bacon-Chorizo Quesadillas were fabulous. Don’t forget to get a margarita – powerful and tasty!

Rapping rock on Rainey

I didn’t get the name of this band, but they skillfully combined rap with pretty decent rock – Eminem-style. Impressive.
