Austin City (No) Limits

I went to ACL this past Sunday, which means I have basically completed the Austin music festival double header: SXSW and ACL in the same calendar year. 

Would I do it again? Probably not. 

Here's some photos for you to sneak a peek at my weekend: 

Started out by Staying at a friends "Da Quinta"   The sink at his house randomly turned on and it was truly horrifying.

Obligatory Hope Gallery stop!  I love how it is never the same twice. There is beauty in the fact that so much heart is put into the work, only to be gone in a few days.

Nothing like realizing your own insignificance in a crowd of 42928346587 music lovers like yourself.

My view for Vance Joy.   I always swore I wasn't short. But it looks like I need to revisit that theory...

Sometimes, you have to sit, no matter what is going on around you.

Gourdoughs. I can't go to Austin and not get a donut. I can't.

Lessons I learned at ACL: 

1. I would probably die really fast in an apocalypse as I am very nice. Oops. 
Example: In a crowd of THOUSANDS smashed together so tightly that the air was 20 degrees hotter in the pit and everyone was literally damp with sweat, I passed off the free water bottle I was handed to some faceless person in a crowd and practically died of thirst for  two hours after that. Ugh. 

2. Apparently, most people cannot carry a tune. And it is SUPER annoying when all you want is to hear your favorite artist, but the super tall, tone deaf chick behind you is REALLY feeling this song. -__- 

 

ACL was a trip, man. What a blast.
