The night before SXSW Film and Interactive got started, I checked out the Shapes Have Fangs show at Mohawk. Turns out Rosa Madriz, the student station manager of KVRX ten years ago when I got my start in radio, books the Mohawk. I also met Christina Garcia who writes about electronic music for Austin Vida. She and I were there for the same reason, to hear DJ Hobo D.
He was rocking between live performances all night. He will DJ the Daily Juice Boat Party on Tuesday, March 16th.
Also, Thursday I got to eat my favorite barbeque, natural beef brisket from Ruby’s. And I located a glass of my favorite Austin beer, Live Oak Hefe. I’m saving photos of food and drink for a post later in the trip.
