Meet Me In SXSW...

So the sxsw website finally announced the showcase for this years music lineup and I'm glad to see some of the names on it. Below is a list of bands that I'm either excited to see for the first time or will have the pleasure of viewing again. I know more bands will be added later but I'm already planning my show schedule by the listings at

And the nominees for bands Kat will most likely see during south-by....
(in no particular order)

Be Your Own Pet (Nashville TN)
The Blow (Portland OR)
Care Bears on Fire (Brooklyn NY)
Crystal Castles (Toronto ON)
Hanson (Tulsa OK)
I Was A Cub Scout (Lincoln UK)
Mika Miko (Los Angeles CA)
Portugal The Man (Wasilla AK)
The Redwalls (Chicago IL)
Simian Mobile Disco (London UK)
Turbo Fruits (Nashville TN)

Heres hoping most of the bands on this list play free shows. Badges are out of the question but wristbands are a maybe.
I have a feeling this Valentine's Day will be a bore. I made my own cards for my friends with catchy V-day puns. I planned on seeing my favorite movie Harold and Maude at the DraftHouse but then decided against it because the price for tickets was a whopping $75! i know, pretty pricey but they are serving a 5 course meal.
Good News! I finally got a checking account so that means that the Etsy shop Ingrid and I are starting will be up soon and I plan on selling vintage clothing on ebay as soon as my credit card comes in the mail.

There's A Crimewave Coming

One of my newest obsessions, Crystal Castles, will be in Austin during SXSW on the 13th, 14th, and 15th. I really hope I get to see them at least once while there here. I'd also like a shirt of there's or a vinyl. My roomie ING and I are started an Etsy shop called Recycled Raptors. We are going to sell repurposed items, recycled materials, and found goods. It is just a side project that encompasses all the ideas we've been having. Swap-bot pretty much owns my life right now. My classes are not too difficult and the hardest class I have is Drawing if you can believe it. Trust me, it is not as easy as it seems I found out.

What I'm into right now: Geek Fashion, Loud Colors, Native American Style, Garbage Jewelry, Hand-Made Tees, V-necks, Floral Dresses, Wild Fabric, Ancient Egypt, Keds style sneakers, Street Style, Overstuffed Tote Bags
