OK. We've decompressed a bit from our hazy escapades under stifling heat in Austin TX last week. We saw bands...lots of bands. We ate well. We may have enjoyed a Lone Star or three. We probably didn't sleep enough. But we had a great time, capturing sessions in a beautiful studio last Thursday as well as filming eleven bands at our very own Day Party last Friday. It was an effort.
If you have paid any attention to our site or our socials, you know we've been yapping about getting our bounce on at Empire for a quite a few weeks in the run-up to the big event. We knew we had put together a nice event. The 10K or so of you who RSVP'd was the first sign, the line down the block before doors opened was second. But it was actually seeing your pretty faces basking in the sun at Empire that really drove it home....whether you showed up early for a fun-loving set from Connecticut's Bronze Radio Return or managed to wait out the line and slip inside just in time to catch The Heavy, Givers, and Bloc Party work their way through a glorious crescendo of performances.
In between, there were plenty of amazing moments, brought to you by the very talented likes of ASTR, Hey Marseilles, Lena Fayre, Tor Miller, Savoir Adore, HAELOS, and Blondfire. We captured all of the action for the site and we'll begin rolling it out in the next couple of weeks. Until then, thanks for coming to bounce with us, and if you couldn't make, take a look at some snaps of what you missed. Videos hitting the site soon!
