(Scripts N Screwz was one of many St. Louis acts playing SXSW this year. Screwz was kind enough to send along some photos and some thoughts about what he saw. Read on below! Congrats to the group as well: Its "On 10" music video was picked up by MTV! )
This is Screwz of SNS reporting live from Austin, Texas, for SXSW. This place is crazy. Non-stop music and drinking everywhere you look seems to be the theme of things in Austin right now. St. Louis has a major presence down here too. Everywhere I look I see someone I know from back home. The SXMW show yesterday was dope. Everybody from back home was in there representing, Rockwell Knuckles, Nato Caliph, SNS, Whiteout and RT-Faq, 12 to 6 Movement; everybody you name em they were out there.
Illphonics have a few shows today [and] we will definitely be out there to support good music. [And] that's just St. Louis people -- I have caught a few surprisingly dope groups while out here. A group called Little Red Radio blow my mind when I just wandered in drunk of the street into their show. We wandered in to a dubstep show that was awesome at this place on 6th St. with performance by Mexicans with Guns and a guy named shlohmo that I heard for the first time. The people on the street are awesome too, they really get into the south-by- spirit of things. Basically [the trip is summed up with] a lot of booze and music, good weather, good times with some good people.
