The view from the suite here in Austin where we’re shooting a number of acoustic performances.
That building back there with the dome is the capitol building; ironically, the capitol of the ultra-conservative, blood-red state of Texas is located in the heart of the ultra-liberal, rainbow-colored city of Austin.
This is, like, my sixth or seventh time covering the annual SXSW music festival, and I continue to marvel at just how cool and bohemian a place is Austin.
I also continue to marvel at how late I stay up at night when I’m here. (Saw Tori Amos and Ben Harper each perform this evening. Good stuff.) I am beyond exhausted and the thought of crawling into my super-comfy, king-size bed is so alluring that I’m going to stop babbling now and just get on with it. Good night.
