Flosstradamus was easily the best dressed this year with their faux ed hardy get-ups. The final party of the conference was an epic collab between iheartcomix, mad decent, turntable lab, trouble & bass & hamburger eyes set at this gallery space near downtown Miami. The party was scheduled to go until 6am, the exact time my flight was set to depart Miami International Airport. Of course, this was the recipe for disaster. I ended up making it to the airport on time but dozed off at my gate, only to awake to an empty gate 5 minutes after my flight had left. I was super bummed nobody thought to wake me and even more worried I would never make it home, considering every flight out of town was booked solid for days to come. Long story short, the airport gods were on my side this day and US Airways hooked it up with a flight home later that day and a little cherry on the cake as well. Anyway, click the thumbs below to see all the photo madness including a party cameo from Lil Jon!

Day 2 of my time in Austin sent me to the outskirts of downtown and an old Salvation Army in the middle of a strip mall. A stage and speakers were added along with a bar and plenty of free alcohol. Well, enough to last until about 3am, at least. This was the first of two parties at this location and this night was curated by iheartcomix and Jelly. Things got pretty out of control for a good portion of the night, esp when The Toxic Avenger and was playing and Ninjasonik got crazy and started a small riot in the crowd.

It took me all day to get these photos up thanks mostly to this horrible hotel wifi connection. The official iheartcomix showcase was a lot of fun even though I was running around like mad trying to get photos of all the artists, and in the process neglecting to get many photos of regular people hanging out and having fun. It's kind of a hassle shooting live performance stuff, esp nowadays with so many other people with cameras taking photos. But much as SXSW itself is over-saturated and full of excess, so is the number of people with cameras at all the shows. Anyway, enjoy the photos.. click any of them to see the entire gallery! More SXSW photos to come!
