It’s been an exceptionally eventful couple of weeks for me. Things are happening!
I just returned from my first SXSW. I saw somewhere in the neighborhood of 30+ acts, including American Music Club, Austra, Capsula, Decades, The Dodos, DOM, Generationals, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Gift Horse, Grass Widow, Grimes, Hooray for Earth, Intimate Stranger, Lower Dens, Now Now, Pujol, Secret Colours, Some Community, The Strange Boys, Sundress, Telekinesis, Times New Viking, tUnE-yArDs, Twin Tigers, Valleys, Veronica Falls, Versus, We Barbarians, Weekend, Wild Flag, and Wye Oak. I brought back a couple of t-shirts, some CDS, a tote bag, some weird bruises, a sunburn, a cough, about 4000 pictures (just guessing), and some stories… I’m embarking on the serious photo editing now. The pictures in this post are just a tiny preview.
In the lead-up to SXSW, I launched terriwise.com, a little online portal for terri wise photography and any associated ventures. Big thanks to Ez for helping make that happen.
Shortly before SXSW, I interviewed the totally fabulous Jessie Stein of the Luyas (see below for more on them). I thoroughly enjoyed our chat. It helps that I am genuinely interested in and enthusiastic about what they do. Check out the interview here.
I have been pondering the future of this here blog. Do I focus it more on music and post more frequently? It’s a thought. Stay tuned and see what happens.
