Brittanie Shey, 5:03 p.m.: "I'm at Kill Rock Stars, and if she weren't too cool for school my inner 15-year-old would be freaking out. Riot grrrl royalty everywhere." Brandon K. Hernsberger, 5:03 p.m.: "At Ms. Bea's, Todd P's party. Quasi playing, drummer from Sleater-Kinney, guitarist from the Jicks, used to date Elliot Smith. Dope. Hugest crowd I've seen here." Dan Oko, 5:09 p.m.: "A SXSW story in five words: 'Are you waiting, man? Sorry.'" Hernsberger, 5:12 p.m.: "Portajohns are festival revelations at day shows with free beer. And surprisingly, they're cleaner than outside." Hernsberger, 5:13 p.m.: "This just in: Drummer from Sleater-Kinney better than Meg White." Hernsberger, 5:17 p.m.: "Every venue I've been to has as no smoking sign outside. People are smoking. Austin's a dummy." Hernsberger, 5:18 p.m.: "New hipster trend - super-skinny people with a small to medium belly protrusion. You heard it here." Craig Hlavaty, 5:20 p.m.: "Trash Talk's drum set is already covered in blood. Just setting up. I feel at home." Hernsberger, 5:21 p.m.: "Another hipster trend - dogs that look as apathetic as their white owners. It's so goddamn amazing." Oko, 5:21 p.m.: "If you missed Motorhead, you could do worse than Pierced Arrows, a hard-rocking three-piece with the monster drummer banging rockabilly beats. These lumberjacks are from Portland, Ore. (too bad can't stay for Dengue Fever)." Oko, 5:21 p.m.: "Playing at Sidecar Thursday." Hernsberger, 5:22 p.m.: "V-neck T-shirts look like Back to the Future 2." Hernsberger, 5:24 p.m.: "Question - why would a place sell Lone Star for $4 when there's a liquor store across the street that sells six-packs for $5. Capitalism makes funny sense." Hernsberger, 5:33 p.m.: "Portajohn mirrors bring out the best in faces." Hernsberger, 5:45 p.m.: "Just saw Todd P. I wanna make out with him." Hernsberger, 6:00 p.m.: "Horse Feathers looks like Ron Howard had a grown-up baby with Bonnie Prince Billy." Shey, 6:00 p.m.: "OMG. Narduar the Human Serviette and Andrew WK at Headhunters.
