Craig Hlavaty, 4:05 p.m.: "Fader is hella packed for Neon Indian. These are Dallas' babies." Adam P. Newton, 4:09 p.m.: "I'm heading to Eastbound and Down to meet @clickwindrepeat and see Danielson." Newton, 4:14 p.m.: "So I decided to go to the French Legation Museum for a great two-stage lawn party." Brittanie Shey, 4:17 p.m.: "Plenty of bikinis at Zilker Park. Traffic on Lamar looks a hot mess according to the Jesus phone. Bringing a bike may make me a genius." Dan Oko, 4:30 p.m.: "Case in point per premature bounce is that I now stand before the Compound, a backyard venue in deep East Austin. The band RAA, a tip from an out-of-towner, has turned up bunk. Party has moved: Back to French Legation." Newton, 4:38 p.m.: "Good Moments In SXSW: Hearing most of The Morning Benders' set at Fader Fort just by standing outside." Newton, 4:44 p.m.: "Up next at French Legation - Yellow Fever." Hlavaty, 4:48 p.m.: "Five Hour Energy shots don't count as hydration, but Lone Star does?" Hlavaty, 4:50 p.m.: "Headed in to see Trash Talk at Death Metal Pizza."

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
