SXSW Comedown

It’s 7:30 PM and I’m about to go to bed. The past four nights I have been working from 6 PM – 2 AM, pressed up against the front of a stage snapping pics of bands. I saw ~24 live bands at four venues and took, oh, I’d say about 3000 or 4000 pictures total. And this of course is in addition to the 3 days I spent at the Interactive portion of the festival.

It’s been a blast, though. Right now I’d have to say that I’ll be volunteering again next year. The sheer amount of humanity, compressed into nine days, was a thrilling experience. And as a photographer with a platinum badge, a mandate to hear music all week, and an excuse to talk with random strangers, it’s even more fun.

I hope that some of you who got my business card are reading this. I promised photos, and I will deliver 🙂 Watch this space for updates and pictures! But right now, sleep …
