Ooooooooh boy. What a week. Killa rolled out to Austin, TX for SXSW. There was a lot of debauchery, a rodeo, schemes, and fun events.
In the evenings, Killa did a 2 night residency at swanky cocktail lounge, Garage.
Nappy painted at Hope Outdoor Gallery, with his buddy Subs JDI RTH.
Over some hungover tex mex breakfast, Killa & his high school homie Stinson (head of digital at Mountain Dew) decided to buy some pearl snaps and cowboys then head out to a rodeo. It was awesome. Dwight Yoakem performed too on a rotating stage.
Oh, and the food in Austin!!
The crew definitely crashed every dope party that we could sneak into, or have enough clout to skip the lines.
Killa documented a lot of the shows he saw and the odd adventures had with the crew. Nap calls this Drawnzo Journalism, whenever he's out traveling and documents what he sees with drawings. This time, he combined videos from the shows and combined with a drawing.
Final concert post from #SXSW and what better way to close it out than with this LEGENDARY band, The Zombies. It was mind blowing to see them still rock so hard, after over 40 years in the biz. @thezombiesofficial @stubbsaustin @sxsw #thezombies #stubbsbbq #timeoftheseason #shesnotthere #austin #drawnzojournalism
One of the livest shows Killa hit at #SXSW was JOEY BADA$$ @ #GreenLabelLive. Dude brought that raw New York energy, on an Onyx type level. There was a mosh pit & you know Killa had to throw back to the punk days and drop bows on kids in the pit. I drew the napkin of him a day later at @Hooters. Thanks to @Complex & @MountainDew for inviting Nappy K.
Today the squad went to @punksgitcut & @theotherfudge's art show @NoComplyATX skate shop. The homie picked up a quad of that sticky. I went into the bathroom to roll a spliffy. My drunk ass leaves the bud jar in the bathroom. When I realize & go back, it's gone. Someone tells me these skater kids ran out looking excited about something. The whole team walks around the back to find these kids at the skate park. We approach who we thought it was and Nappy K gets a little too aggressive. They say it was some little 13 yr old. We ended up getting more tree from the kids and smoked em out. Then I drew this to commemorate it & gave it to them. All good. Some young gun had a great day thanks to my forgetfulness. Thanks for being good sports @verdeloc @brandonyabishh #nocomply #drawnzojournalism #housepark #atx #austin #sxsw #jayhowell #travismillard
