SXSW Wolfman Violinist

Things like this are perfectly normal in Austin. Our motto is "Keep Austin Weird"

Continuing my documentation of the week-long music festival that is SXSW, I present round two of my photos.

  We’re going to try and play a little game. In one of these pictures there is a very small child hidden. Can you find him or her? The first person to comment with the answer will get a prize TBD. No worries, I can assure you that whatever the prize may be, it will have no monetary value, only sentimental. (My funding for the HoliDaze is still quite limited.)

I was also given the opportunity to write a guest post for The Traveling Fool covering the basics of SXSW. Never been to Austin? Make sure to check out that article as well.


Street art and a glowstick dancer atop the building!

The bass was thumping so hard I have no idea how the tattoo artist kept a steady hand

The street trash piles up fast -- this is at the beginning of the week!

Have you ever been to SXSW?

About The Author

Derek Freal is a cultural enthusiast and perpetual wanderer, as well as the founder of the HoliDaze travel community. He loves going locations where he does not speak a word of the local language and must communicate with hand gestures, as well as places where he is forced to squat awkwardly to poo (supposedly its healthier and more efficient). If you tell him he cannot go somewhere, well I guarantee that will be the next spot he visits. For more view Derek's bio or stalk him on the social sites below....
