Day 2 – Tuesday, March 15th, 2016:

The Plan: Oberhofer (again) at Nomad Bar: 11:00pm

The Outcome:  I arrive ~15 minutes before the first band is scheduled to play and park right out front. Nomad’s is in North Austin, which is perfect if you want to avoid SXSW crowds and traffic. I walk in, grab a refreshing drink, and sit down in the cool air conditioned bar. I also brought my book because I was attending most of this event alone and knew there was going to be a lot of downtime in between sets. Which of course is weird, so one of the photographers there snapped a picture of me and laughed because I was reading at a concert. Hopefully that picture never makes the internet.

Keeps – 7:00 PM
Holy Esque – 8:00 PM
The Crookes – 9:00 PM
Adult Books – 10:00 PM
Oberhofer – 11:00 PM
Girls Names – 12:00 AM

Nomad’s is the perfect place for a chill concert. This was the only venue I went to that had: cheap drinks, actual tables/seat to sit down in, air conditioning, and parking. This was my favorite venue of SXSW, even more so because it’s small. The band is right there and after their sets, most of the bands came and chilled at the bar. I talked to the drummer from The Crookes for a little bit, he was friendly. Most of the time bands immediately have to pack up and run to another venue for their next show, but since Nomad’s is a bit from downtown they ended up staying for a while.

 

All of the performances were pretty good, no sounds problems. Oberhofer even walked out the back of the bar, around the bar, and came back in through the front back onto the stage. I ended up leaving shortly after Girls Names started playing since I had to be up early for work the next morning. Check back later for Day 3 of SXSW or click here for Day 1.
