Over the Weekend: SXSW, Rockets and Fishnet

What a day. What a day. It’s St. Patrick’s Day. It’s the morning after South by Southwest. And the Rockets, oh, man, the Rockets...

South by Southwest

Where to begin? We covered the #*$*&% out of the annual Austin music festival. Blog posts galore, with things overheard and a guy in a cock sock. A slideshow of performances, including a killer set from Monotonix. A slideshow of spectators, including the Queen of Austin. A slideshow of the poster convention, with lots of black and red. Live-blogging the Village Voice Media Party, with photos to boot. And did we mention blog posts? Lots and lots of blog posts.

Rockets Win 22 in a Row

Meanwhile, back in town, McGrady and the Miracles won another one, this time whupping the Lakers. Jason Friedman weighed in, and even got some extra time with Shane Battier.

9:57 p.m. at Meridian, 10:24 p.m. at Lucky's Pub and 10:47 p.m. at Pashaa Ultra Lounge

Bill Olive went out looking for St. Paddy’s fun and brought back fishnet and a bikini. Lucky guy.

Everybody might be Irish today, but we’re also a little tired. Ah, well, see you at the pub tonight. – Keith Plocek
