Ashland here with a 2019 SXSW (@sxsw ) recap! This year was AWESOME - so many incredible sessions, films, bands, activations, meetups, conversations, and more. I wanted to highlight some of my favorite moments pictorially (which was rough!). Activations! How can you choose between a room filled with cheese and a Garden of Earthly Delights? You don't choose - you go to both! @wisconsincheese , y'all know how to make a gal's heart melt. And @amazonprimevideo , you created a space so magical I never wanted to leave. And now I'm pumped for Good Omens (@goodomensprime ). Tons of ️ too for the book library from What We Do in the Shadows (@theshadowsfx )! Workshops and Sessions! It was awesome getting to share about Networking at my session w/ General Assembly (@ga_austin ) & Melissa Brown (@heymelissabrown ) leading an icebreaker. It was also so great to lead a Meet Up for Community Builders with @coffeeshopnomad (not pictured). And speaking of Meat Ups, this year's event was delectable and full of conversations with Austin entrepreneurs. @redvelvetevents - y'all know how to throw one heck of a party 🥳 (balloon work by @theballooncollective ). Bands! Walker Lukens (@walkerlukens ) is a personal favorite and the Do512 (@do512 ) show was phenomenal. His new album Adult releases on 4/26 - woohoo. I heard Culture Wars (@culturewars_ ) for the first time and ️️ them. I'm so glad they're an Austin band and I can see more of them! Bailen (@bailentheband ) and Anteros (@anterosofficial ) were surprise finds that were AWESOME.
Misc. moments! Getting to spend time connecting and reconnecting with friends was unbelievable. From Mary's (@mymarysue ) bday screening of US with @hey_kba , to the reunion of The Mystery Club, to seeing shows w/ @cassandralclark & @keanu1hu to photo booths with the BF (@simonsitegoals ), it was all an amazing journey full of fun, learning, connection, and more!
