This year, Tilly's and Fearless Records put on a SXSW Showcase in Austin and as you'd expect, things poped off hella hard!
After meeting up with SXSW Dickies House Sweepstakes Winners, Ashley and Danielle, we made our way around the city, ending things with the Fearless Records Showcase, where Eve 6, Breathe Carolina, Every Avenue, Go Radio, The Static Jacks and more killed it all night long.
Watch the video and check some pics and see how it all went down.
We had a blast alongside our gracious winners, Ashley and Danielle, all weekend long. This morning we woke up to a an email from Ashley thanking us for the experience. Ashley is so rad, and so is her super kind letter, we decided to run it right here on the blog.
Tilly’s SXSW trip to Austin, Texas was so gnarly! It was seriously the best trip EVER! I would like to first start off by saying thank you so much for such a rad experience! I’d love to give a special thanks to Tilly’s, Dickies, Jon and William for showing me such an epic time and for being so sweet and fun to be around. Totally loved the Driskell Hotel, so beautiful and authentic! Was fascinated with all the ghost story legends (even had a few creepy experiences myself)! The Dickies VIP party was pretty insane, great bands, great vibe all together. Penguin Prison, Drop the Lime & Yacht totally rocked the house. Meeting the president of Filter magazine and the founder of Dickies was for sure a pleasure! The Stages on Sixth definitely had a real Texas vibe to it. Idle Warship and Glen Hansard were incredible! Tried my first Lone Star beer – simply delicious! Another stellar night was the Tilly’s/Fearless Records showcase at the Dirty Dog bar! AMAZING!! Breathe Carolina, Eve 6, The Static Jacks, Every Avenue and Go Radio were wilddd! Thanks for your amazing prize package! Such a night to remember! I can’t even begin to describe Sixth Street (especially on St. Patty’s Day!), totally a world of it’s own & something everyone should experience at least once in their lives. The diversity, the culture, the friendliness of the people, the free goodies, it was all just so overwhelming in the best way imaginable! I will definitely be visiting Austin, Texas again, hopefully for SXSW next year! The city was so eccentric, lovely and full of life. Perfect weather, too! Loved the random performances and drum circles in the streets at night, the bike taxis, the VIP service at all the events! I legit had the time of my life!! Hope to have many more rad events together in the future! Tilly’s totally rocked my world. (:
Peace and love, always.
A big thanks goes out to SXSW, Austin, Ashley and Danielle, Fearless Records, Dickies and all the bands. See you all next year!
