I went to Austin with @eimski and saw Bon Iver

I went to see Bon Iver tape Austin City Limits TV. It was everything I hoped it would be.

My company for the event was the wonderful @eimski. She and I met through Twitter and got acquainted when she visited NYC. Without Twitter I’m not sure what would have brought together a girl from Northern Ireland living in Houston with lil ol’ me. I’m so grateful.

E looks nice. Me? Not so much. That’s life.

We treated ourselves to a stay in a luxe hotel and lounged by the pool until it became too hot. Eimski and I are both fair-skinned so we didn’t last long.

We ate. We drank. We shopped.

We ate some more.
After some tasty drinks and snacks at the W Hotel, it was time for the main event: Bon Iver. Before the show we said hello to Mick Jagger while perusing the gallery of artists who have performed for ACLTV before.
I didn’t tweet much or take many pictures during the band’s nearly two-hour long set. It was a beautiful performance. The musicians Justin has surrounded himself with are so talented.
The awesome Leslie Nichols tweeted the set list.

It was after 11pm when we left ACLTV so most restaurants were closed. We returned to the W Hotel and sat in The Darkest Bar For Miles Around.

Before long, an Average Joe asked if he could join us. We were amused and said yes. Things took a turn for the weird when he took off his shoes to show us his pedicure.

OPI “Lincoln Park After Dark” he proclaimed – what man knows these things?!

Then he said something straight out of Fifty Shades and I had to ask him to leave.

But E and I still had a blast. The next day, we went out and ate some more.
