SXSW day 1
Well here I am in Austin Texas. We flew in last night on a very pleasant Canada Air flight. When we got out of the airport it was mild and warm, welcoming and quite a change from the cold of San Francisco.
The hotel is v comfy and my plus one is rapt because of the good shopping nearby and the separate bedrooms so I won’t wake her when I stumble in v early in the morning.
I have picked up my badge and I’m ready to go. The bands don’t start till about 8 o’clock so I’m exploring the conference centre and the trade shows.
The other attendees are friendly. I travelled on the shuttle in from the airport with a concert promoter from Holland looking for r and b and rap bands to sign for concerts. He had flown direct from Holland but still planed to head into town as he had heard that jay z was having a surprise gig.
