NoNo at SXSW 2012

So I was determined to go to SXSW 2012.
I decided to drive 860 miles from Nashville TN to Austin TX.
Yes, and by myself.

I honestly cant begin to describe the amazing experience I had at SXSW.
I was defiantly blessed. I stayed in some of the most luxurious places.

I didn't capture everything but I did
a daily recap for the 6 days I was there.
I hope you guys enjoy looking through my eyes for that week.
All images/videos captured with my mobile device.

Day 1:
Me, being delusional via driving from 6am to 7pm across country
finding ways to entertain myself and stay awake.
Finally getting there and making new friends etc.

Day 2:
You can see the streets in the daytime as I wondered
from venue to venue.
This video contains
performances by:
The Drums, Santigold, & Theophilus London,

mobbin around in petty cabs with the Browntourage
and eating french fries for dinner.
I also met Dee from Deeandricky which was so fab <3

Day 3:
I attended the Psych Fest which was pretty rad.
Saw so much good music I never even knew of.
They had 3 stages and If I went to the girls room I could potentially 'discover' a new band while standing in line!
For example that band at 0:51, I was passing by and just fell in love with their
interesting movie soundtrack type sound....
This video contains
performances by:
Purling Hiss, Mikal Cronin, The Growlers, THEE Satisfaction, & Hottub.

Day 4:
Was one of the best days of all. I had VIP passes for the Spin Shed.
I got to see Santigold again and closer. Her dancers are so bad ass!!!
I also met Das Racist who pretty much stole my heart!
This video contains performances by:
Best Coast, Santigold, Big K.R.I.T., Das Racist & Main Attrakionz.

Day 5:
This day was pretty epic too because I met so many dope people.
Many who were only my internet friends... til then.
I spent most of my day at the Thrasher showcase.
I didn't record so much this day I was doing that whole 'living in the moment' thing.
This video contains performances by:
Theophilus London & Solange Knowles.

Day 6:
Last day at SXSW I kept it low key and chilled at
the 5th Annual The Park Poolhouse BBQ Jam!!!
They had The Park and Electric Wire Hustle jamming and an open mic.
Saw a bunch of my loving friends from the bay
which made it the best way to end my trip!

There are also some pics from sxsw I took out on my tumblr:
