After seven hours of continuous music and two stages worth of packed, sweaty crowds shuffling back and forth between rooms at Peckerhead's in Austin, the Baeble team sat back and high-fived over some Tex-Mex, with a resounding feeling of success (and taco burps). On the roof, bands baked under the hot Austin sun as we probed them with questions about life, the universe, and their most hated interview questions (so what does YOUR band name mean?). Free Vitamin Water, Red Bull, and breakfast tacos were had. Everything on both stages was lit and captured on beautiful HD video, and in high quality audio. The bands, from Ben Howard to Yellow Ostrich killed it with alternating stages and non-stop performances. In short, The Launch Pad rocketed past all our expectations, and as we left the heat of Austin for the surprisingly temperate climates of New York City, we felt like this time, we really nailed it.
Thanks to everyone who came out, it means the world to us that you continue to support Baeble. If you didn't make it to Texas, or to our party, stay tuned for full videos of all the performances, right here on the site.
