Hlavaty On The Hloose At SXSW: The Fader Fort, MGMT Rumors, Mariachi El Bronx, The Meaning of "Prison Wallet" And A BBQ Truck In Peril

2:04 p.m. Rocks Off Sr. to Hlavaty: "OK hoss, let's hear something about some music this hour."

2:22 p.m.: Hlavaty, by phone: "I gotta run over to the Fader Fort to pick up some credentials, and I'm doing a video interview with Mariachi el Bronx at a taco truck after that."

2:25: "Checking in at the Levi's Fader Fort. Rocking four wristbands for one party. Rumor is that MGMT headlines tonight."

2:37 p.m.: "About to eat and drink the tacos with Mariachi El Bronx."

2:48 p.m.: "Listening to Rose Tattoo while the Bronx get suited up in their mariachi suits. This is happening."

3:08 p.m.: "All decked out with the Bronx. They didn't bring me a mariachi suit. Sad face."

3:16 p.m.: "The Bronx just taught me the phrase 'prison wallet.'"

3:17 p.m. Rocks Off Sr.: "Do tell..."

3:27 p.m.: Hlavaty sends his answer via picture (below). We still have no idea what it is.

3:30 p.m.: "Prison wallet is your butthole, btw."

[At this point Rocks Off Sr. got up to smoke a cigarette and perhaps weep just a little.]

3:46 p.m.: "Salt Lick BBQ truck, I am going to steal you."

3:52 p.m.: "OK. We Were Promised Jetpacks. Not too bad."

3:59 p.m.: "The Fader Fort is a good free deal. Check it out."
