Landing in Austin and getting to our hotel was an adventure, but you could feel the energy absolutely buzzing downtown. This was my first South By South West, and I knew it would be something special. We arrived on Sunday, the day before the Music Festival officially started, so I went to some free events to try and get the most out of the day. I’m a big fan of what has been dubbed YouTube’s Holy Trinity- comprised of Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, and Mamrie Hart. Mamrie and Hannah were speaking at the Create and Cultivate House, so that was where I went.

iMessaging Avi Buffalo

After a series of wildly unsuccessful attempts at meeting up for an in-person interview in Austin at SXSW, Avi Buffalo and I decided to simply chat via iMessage. I discussed a myriad of things with the fascinating Long Beach-based artist, including (but not limited to) Jewish food, Instagram, words, and porta potties.

McDowell Mountain Music Festival 2017 was 100% a hit. This vibrant festival has been popping since 2004 with big names like The Flaming Lips, Porter Robinson, The Avett Brothers, and more. This local grassroots festival is one of Arizona's modern gems. Because of how well organized the event is and the popularity of the headliners, this festival brings out festival-goers of all ages. Additionally, the dedicated local artist stage and time slots really accentuate its unique Arizona flavor. M3F is a continuing hit and I am excited to see it continue to grow.

Creepin' On Fat Tony

Getting geared up to see him in Austin, I reached out to Houston-based MC Fat Tony for a lil pre-SXSW interview. In the email exchange, we chatted about a shit ton of stuff, from my fav cartoon, to his fav music, to who he's been texting, and muuuch more. Reading his responses only confirmed my suspicions that he is in fact one of the coolest humans on our pale blue dot (he <3's BKNY + has a Bikini Kill tattoo, c'mon).

The Ninja Nation Tour-Datsik

Acts: 
Datsik
Acts: 
Crizzly
Acts: 
Virtual Riot
Concert Date: 
Wed, 02/22/2017
Location: 
Rialto Theater

To describe the Tucson leg of the Ninja Nation Tour as sick and a riot would be to easy of a pun. The show, however, was truly great. Virtual Riot began the night by throwing down heavy bass. Even with a smaller crowd size Virtual Riot stuck to his roots and played an hour long set of hard dubstep. He paid homage to Excision by having the crowd “throw the X up” during his classic remix of “Codename X.” It was very interesting to watch him mix heavier tracks into well known songs without any break in flow.
