After finally recovering from jet lag my brain can fully function to write a short blog of our travels and shows at SXSW.
After a cancelled flight, running to the gate, two connections and a missing bass guitar, we arrived for our first show 5 minutes before being onstage. It’s safe to say, nerves were not a problem at this stage.
We had two amazing shows at the British Embassy venue: Latitude 30. Got to catch some of my favourite acts including Dinosaur Pile-Up and Prides.
Then we moved up the road to BD Rileys for the Full Irish Showcase and their official SXSW showcase in the evening time. Again some fantastic acts and really good fun.
The vast amount of acts, people, food and music was an incredible sight and a joy to be apart of.
Thanks to the Latitude 30 staff and team for treating us so well and storing our gear.
Until next year….
Team NI: Rams’ Pocket Radio, Travis is a Tourst, I am Goldie Fawn, Silhouette

First track in quite a while!
After a few months of having these track in pieces, I finally sat down one evening and finished it. Coming into this track, I had the beginning bass riff and just built around it given a Soul/RnB/Pop vibe. I cross so many genres….
Anyway, here it is. Enjoy!
This beauty arrived today and it’s a first pressing. Sweet. #hundredreasons #vinyl #ideasaboveourstations
