While most of our time at the SXSW festival in Austin was spent in our Four Seasons studio, interviewing bands and broadcasting the KLAQ Morning Show, I did get a chance to sneak out and explore the city. There were plenty of odd and unusual sights to see and I made sure to take plenty of pictures for you guys!

I not only was a SXSW virgin, but an Austin virgin as well, so I had no idea where I was going or what I was doing, which meant I was often adopted and brought to shows and parties by strangers. Strangers, by the way, are a whole lot nicer in Texas than they are in New York. Can I stay in Texas forever?
