Huh? Whaaat? Mmmm… I don’t know about that title.
I read somewhere on Facebook recently that ACL was coming up and that got me thinking… ACL, SXSW, Old Pecan Street Festival, Austin Celtic Festival, Bat Fest etc etc… Feels like Austin is always gearing up for some kind of creative-hippie-folklore-keepin’ it weird kind of event. I admit I travel all the time, my taste in music may not be mainstream in the ATX population and I am scared of crowds. So while I also don’t partake in the above mentioned events, I also stay away as far away from the more urban/ghetto-fab/straight hood events like TX Relays. No offense my peeps!!!
Sadly, I have lived here for almost 10 years and I can’t really say that I relate to any of the major events going on around town. I love Austin, but sometimes I feel like if it wasn’t for my homies (who make every party an event!!!) and the very cool people I have encountered along the way, it probably wouldn’t be such an awesome place for me.
THE QUESTION IS: You are not a hippie… But are you an Austin festival freak? Do you identify with the Austin culture and scene? What do you like, what do you hate? What makes it unique? What would you change? Speak on it
