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.

I’m going to Austin — again!

I’m heading to Austin this week so ye olde blog will be a little quieter than usual.

You see, I plan to be very busy seeing my first Bon Iver show and catching up with my awesome friend (who I met via twitter) @eimski. We’re going to eat good food, get some cocktails and hear what we’re sure will be an amazing performance.

Last year I had the special treat of attending Mumford and Sons’ taping of Austin City Limits, the first to take place in the new theater.

It was my first trip to Austin and I loved the city. This will be my third Austin visit. You can read a bit about the second trip here.

Maybe I’ll buy cowboy boots this trip? I said that last trip.
