Tyrone Wells

By the end of Thursday the craziness that is South By Southwest was starting to take a toll on everyone. Exhaustion hit, but from catching many talented bands so I didn’t mind.


I started my day off with the roomies checking out the American Apparel sale before brunch (not much of a shopper so didn't dig through the massive boxes that were there). Afterward, I met up with Tyrone Wells at his MySpace showcase for a quick Q&A. A man of many metaphors, it was refreshing to talk to someone with such a great view on life and music.


Traveling by myself and going to most of the showcases solo has been a learning experience for me. I've covered shows alone before, but usually in New York or New Jersey where I'm familiar with my surroundings, so it's always a thrill to see a familiar face here in Austin.


After catching Tyrone's amazingly impressive set at La Zona Rosa I ate at The Parish planning to see Lisa Hannigan's performance at 9 p.m. But, turns out I was at the wrong venue — major bummer. By the time I finished my food and realized this, the line outside her showcase was ginormous so I figured I'd head to Stubb's instead and catch Gomez.


Change of plans. On my way to Stubb's I ran into the Lights Resolve guys (currently my fave. New York-based band — give their song “Another Five Days” a listen) and spent the rest of the night catching shows with them. It was so great to see familiar faces finally and I was glad to spend time with people I actually knew. First show with LR was Liam and Me (definitely recommend catching if you're into energetic indie-rock pop) then As Tall As Lions then Paper Route. The drummer in Paper Route was phenomenal — I couldn't keep my eyes off him! We ran into Joseph Gordon-Levitt on the way (Angels in the Outfield, 10 Things I Hate About You anyone?) Overall, a great end to the day.
