SXSW 2012

It’s official, I have finally experienced SXSW.

I can’t say I fully experienced SXSW, I was out there for work and I didn’t really get a chance to check out other events like The Fader Fort, Thrasher House, Super Party, or Vice Kills Texas. I mean that in the most least-bitter way, I loved my trip to Texas!

img_0238 My job, Cashmere Agency, took me and a few other coworkers out to Texas for SXSW. We had a two day showcase out in Austin called “#TheVIBEHouseSXSW”.

img_0245 I ate a ton! I even ate a good amount of alligator!

img_0256 One of the events I was able to make was the Doritos party. I went to see my uncle, Snoop, perform and hang with coworkers. It was awesome. I’ve realized, as much as I work with Dogg, I’ve only seen him perform about 3 times. Craze. Afterward, we went over to the Interscope party. It was pretty wild, I blame the open bar.

img_0285 Our showcase was awesome! I handled the stage design, stage layout, and the live visuals for it. I may have gotten a bit out of hand when I decided that I wanted 6 displays and four 7ft tall LED bars. Coming from the electro/EDM scene, I secretly wanted our showcase to be a rave. I feel like I accomplished that. I was super stoked to have performers like Kendrick Lamar/Black Hippy, Dogg, Taylor Gang, Timbaland, A$AP Rocky, and tons of other on the stage I decked out.

Super thanks to my job for trusting me with the look and feel of our showcase. Also, thanks to Ilios Lighting Design and Olden Lighting for the labor and equipment! It was fun times.

Time for Coachella ;)

#VIBEHOUSESXSW

Stoked to announce that I’ll be making my way over to SXSW this year! My Job is flying me out to handle the live visuals/lighting for our two day showcase. Super stoked to make it out there, hopefully I’ll have a little time to check out some other events.

24hr tour

Last Sunday, thanks to Alexander Spit, The Hundreds took me out to San Francisco to do visuals for their The Hundreds and Diamond Supply Co. ‘Forever Summer’ party…

img_0081 Once I arrived in SF, the first thing I could think about was food.

img_0102 Though this was only a 24hr trip, I had a chunk of free time to wander the streets of SF.

img_0117 Once the sun went down, it was time for me to head over to the venue, Public Works, and setup to do some live visuals.

img_0123 It was a wild show! The event ended around two, right afterward we all headed back on the bus so it could take us back to LA.
