No badge and no wristband, I decided to take a couple of days off and head to Austin anyways. Officially starting Wednesday, I arrived about 1230am that night and headed over to The Hideout on Congress and 6th. One of my favorite bands that never comes to Texas was playing at 1am, Trespassers William. We had met them at SXSW 2 years ago and guitarist Matt had offered to help my band in any way possible. 2 years later he mixed and mastered the Ledaswan album. So we didn't hesitate to get the chance to come see them again. Not that they were bad last time, but this time they put on a much better set. I would even say it rocked in its own way. I would describe Trespassers William music as an equivalent to that really great drunk you feel from wine...right before you go over into the "I drank too much wine stage". Their musical is ethereal and beautiful. Listen to Trespassers William
The Hideout is a great little coffee shop that has a back room with stadium seating. This is used for both film and music. Being 1am when we got there, the employees suggestion for a bucket of beer instead of the 3 in my hand was a great suggestion. Thank you. And to the guys behind us that were trying to talk louder than everyone in the room before the show started...Fuck you!!!
