We’re going to try and play a little game. In one of these pictures there is a very small child hidden. Can you find him or her? The first person to comment with the answer will get a prize TBD. No worries, I can assure you that whatever the prize may be, it will have no monetary value, only sentimental. (My funding for the HoliDaze is still quite limited.)
I was also given the opportunity to write a guest post for The Travelling Fool covering the basics of SXSW. Never been to Austin? Make sure to check out that article as well.
And now more SXSW 2012 photos!
Although SXSW (South By Southwest) is a hard to compare experience — over 2,000 bands in one week! — I did try to capture some of the essence on video. Unfortunately I left the digital camera at home as my pockets were already burdened enough with a flask, new band CDs, and the inevitable hundreds of flyers and handouts from various people, bands, and advertisers downtown. As a result these are all smart phone SXSW videos.
I tweaked the audio on the Santogold performance using Adobe Premiere, as I was standing about six inches from one of the monster speakers at the very front, but otherwise all footage is raw.
