Julio's, Flashlight Party, Mommy

Julio's is a small Mexican restaurant tucked away next to Quack's on 43rd & Duval. My first time coming here was probably around a year ago and I've only ordered one thing since then... and by looking at my picture, I'm sure you know why. Their chicken nachos are kind of the best thing ever. I still have 2/3 of it left over because it's that humongous. I'm pretty sure they use Mexican mozzarella cheese for their nachos ... which is SO yummy. You can get some at H-E-B... it looks like a big ball of cheese. And then their chicken is super tender ... and with the beans and chips, it's just delicious. If you live in Austin and like to call yourself knowledgeable about Mexican food ... then hold your tongue until you try this place. It's my favorite. :) Remember to bring cash too.

some pictures from Flashlight Party. More to be uploaded to the flickr.

Lastly, an unfinished drawing of my mommy... I've been working on it. Yup!


I am going on a picnic tomorrow during my break from work #1 cuz the weather is gonna be awwwwesome!

what's next? i want to go to pitchfork in july. :)

Bands I caught at SXSW:
  • Flosstradamus - finally caught this act despite the fact that they've come 10,000 times in the past year. mi mal.
  • Ringo Deathstarr - when are they going to be a big deal? i'm waiting!
  • The Von Bondies - pretty horrible
  • Peter Bjorn & John - even worse. they had to restart maybe 3 times. and they took an ungodly amount of time to set up. and started late. i wanted to die.
  • Thao Nguyen & The Get Down Stay Down - she makes me want to be in a band. i guess i do feel the asian connection, i'm not going to lie. we could be cousins.
  • Passion Pit - uh, marry me? i have a feeling they won't stay very big for very long though. :(
  • 3OH3! - i don't even care to look up how to spell this band's name. i was forced to watch them while waiting for Andrew Bird. i wonder if this is how my mom used to feel about my music when purevolume used to be cool.
  • Meat Puppets - why did they play after above-mentioned band? a completely different crowd... obviously.
  • Gomez - once again, completely different crowd. but great performance.
  • Andrew Bird - i died, and revived myself, and died again.
  • Crystal Stilts - first time to hear this band and i thought they were pretty amazing. the sound was great inside the tiny tiny room... like echoing through my brain cells.
  • Little Boots - super cute
  • The Pains of Being Pure At Heart - pretty okay. once again, i want to be in a band.
  • The School of Seven Bells - i think the girl guitarist models for AA. pretty sure.
  • Third Eye Blind - they didn't play Semi-Charmed Life, what's up with that? It's ok, it's still fucking 3EB.
  • Wavves - hipster hyped, but i surely enjoyed it. Sho 'nuf definitely helped out the show.
  • Mika Miko - i was laughing at this girl's poodle jacket and poodle purse until i realized she was also in the band
  • No Age - mosh pit
  • Soft Pack / Muslims - i liked them. but i can't get over the fact that my hamburger cost as much as a beer. or maybe i should say the beer cost as much as the hamburger... ok it was $5. that's fucked up.
  • Ladyhawke - tiffany, is this where you got your blog name?
  • Solange - hm. i think this is about the point in time where i was starting to pass out...

lol yep.

Maybe my favoritest part of SXSW haha... top notch free booze, food, and famous people everywhere, yay!

Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures today. But, I did catch a couple bands today at the Pitchfork/Windish Agency bash... I kept thinking Little Boots' boob was gonna slip out. The keyboardist of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart seemed like she was either a happy zombie or... a happy zombie? 3EB didn't play Semi-Charmed Life or Narcolepsy, wtf!

Will someone please get me into Perez? kthx.
