Random Tweets from SXSW 2010

Ah, memories. With 2011 SXSW just around the corner, I’ve gotten all misty eyed over my time there last year (highly doubtful I’ll be returning this year, much as I want to). Here are a few of the many Tweets from my SXSW 2010 coverage, most of which were picked up by New Times and other assorted Tweet-picker-uppers.

  • Adrian Grenier (or whatever his name is) from Entourage makes small screen glories real @ #sxsw gifting suite (http://plixi.com/p/15210423)
  • Having the gifting suite bartender call me sweetheart was oddly comforting. Then she said it 2 the guy next to me. Whore. #sxsw
  • Overheard Thomas Erak from The Fall of Troy @ Cast Spells#SXSW show say: “he’s like ‘it’s too gay it’s too gay’ and I’m like ‘YOU’RE gay.'”
  • Something hypnotic about siting in #sxsw gifting suite watching alt-rock heroes pose with sneakers. Or is it the vodka/rum cocktails?
  • By my estimate, roughly 16% of the dudes @ #SXSW look and dress like the unibomber.
  • French Miami kinda remind me of Stiff Little Fingers (is it the voice?) love ’em (now deaf tho) #sxsw http://tweetphoto.com/15049644
  • Count from L.E.P. Bogus Boys has got gifting down. He hangs at the bar while his manager grabs swag @ #sxsw
  • Dear rap fellows, I don’t think it’s actually necessary to rhyme when you’re just talking to the audience.
  • At #sxsw Rogue Wave show in Lance Armstrong’s bike shop. Doing Meatist interview with Zack post show.
  • French clown busker chick? @ #sxsw(http://tweetphoto.com/14733879)
  • First #sxsw show of the day: the walkmen live in tiny ifc studio, being streamed @ifc now. Very cool room, dude plays a farfisa, too.
  • Final day @ #sxsw gifting suite: lots of guys with nose rings lining up for Carrera sunglasses and Vans.
  • Hitchiking in Austin does not work #sxsw
  • Hey blonde in porsche that laughed and hipsters w ny plates that didnt pick me up hitching @ #sxsw : fuck you
  • Some shoes are too fucking stupid to wear in public, even in Austin #sxsw (http://tweetphoto.com/14748613)
  • No. http://tweetphoto.com/14849625
  • Stone Foxes from sf killing it @ manic fest destiny, #sxsw http://twitpic.com/19974h
  • Sure way 2 tell #sxsw band isn’t cool: they say “thatls how fucking cool we are” and they’re serious
  • Note to all you retro bands: “more cowbell” was a joke.
  • The fear @ #sxsw is that you’re missing gold. Then you know you’re AT gold. Like on stage @ Nneka http://tweetphoto.com/14977896
  • Nneka @ #sxsw amazing. Best possible way 2 start the day, though a bit heartbreaking.
  • (http://tweetphoto.com/15210116)
  • Better than the photog pit against the stage @ Sharon Jones & Dap Kings #sxsw show? Pretty much nothing. Snaps coming to BITF soon
  • Shirock plays a church and gets their asses smoted with smoke (http://tweetphoto.com/15210819)
  • An awful lot of ppl at Surfer Blood closing show @ #sxsw are fucking with their phones and looking bored.
  • Possibly the best show I caught @#sxsw? Ty Seagall from bay area. Old school punk rock with a chick drummer that killed
  • An awful lot of musicians wandering Austin airport looking spun out and confused this AM. Wish I was better with faces.
