Austin fashion

Last year at SXSW it seemed that everyone had skinny jeans and emo haircuts. This year we noticed a different trend among the ladies:

Skirts or dresses with boots.

I took the pictures of these 12 boot'n'dress wearing gals during legendary punk band X played their set at Spin magazine's at Stubb's.

Last year, Bill finagled us into that same party where the Buzzcocks were playing. This year I was the one who got us in ... but with far less finesse.

We were standing outside the venue and it was hot and I was tired and I didn't want to be standing around there anymore. Bill tried to get in and was told that we'd have to wait. I saw a guy giving out passes and I walked up to him, held up my hand and said "five." He looked at me and said, "That's aggressive." And I shrugged my shoulders. He gave me five passes.

Sometimes you just have to ask.

Agressive is good. Especially in Texas.

I like that about Texas. You don't have to spend so much time being nice 'n' shit.
