Adventures at SXSW Part Dos

So I am back from good ole Texas, and I have the sore feet and cold to prove it. SXSW may be over, but I can still reminisce right? So here is a little recap of my adventures in Austin.
One of the best things about my trip to Austin was that I got to see one of my favorite bands, Matt and Kim, play not once, but twice! They are so cute and full of energy, that it makes me want to move to Brooklyn and become their best friends.


I also got to see an amazing set from Tilly and the Wall, who tap danced their way into everyone’s hearts.


Another highlight was the surprise performance from Pete Townshend during The Fratellis set at the Spin Magazine party. I was so excited that I called my Dad right after the show to tell him about it.


Austin not only had some good music, they also had a plethora of good eats. For instance, I had some awesome fake meat dish and bubble tea from Veggie Heaven.


And for dessert, I had some sort of traditional Mexican pastry made vegan at Mr. Natural. Believe me-it was even better than it looks.


So now I’m back in Norfolk suffering from the effects of all-day shows and late, late nights. But it definitely was worth it.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
