We’re headlining an Eat Your Own Ears night at the Roundhouse tomorrow night, playing alongside Teleman, East India Youth and Dark Bells. Get there early to take in the full view.
SXSW was an awesome experience. Not only was it our first trip to the US as a band, but it was my (Michael’s) first time in America. Pretty darn exciting. We played some fun shows, met great people and most importantly actually saw the sun for what felt like the first time in years. Below are a few snaps from our time in Austin, TX.
Georgetown suburb at dawn.
Is God really dead? Are Daft Punk alive?
Our first show. Bizarre networking event. Breakfast + met the British Consulate for Texas; stories about Obama.
East 6th St!
Irony has finally crossed the Atlantic, it seems.
Imperial motorcycle, and …
Yes, it’s Boba Fett. Only added to the feeling that we were somewhere in Mos Eisley spaceport.
Our bassist Ady … nailing it.
Our drummer Leo rocking that Francis Ford Coppola look.
Hangin’ out atop Maggie Mae’s during our DJ set for BlahBlahBlahScience.
It’s Charlotte Church!
Lucky enough to catch Toro Y Moi playing tracks off Anything in Return. Pretty sweet.
Cycle taxis. Guilt alleviated by extortionate prices.
Syrup for blood. I believe this combination is referred to as ‘umami’ in the great cities of the East. Crippling both body and mind, yet feeding the soul.
Ady retaining his composure at our Last Show (with Beautiful Buzz, it was great).
Which meat to eat?
Walked in randomly on the Flaming Lips soundchecking.
Did somebody say … KENDRICK LAMAR??
Chilling out on Enchanted Rock.
Monument Cafe in Georgetown - great breakfasts.
How does he do it?
Until next time, Texas.
