Tattoo Artist Magazine Issue #25: 2011 SXSW Review

By Rose Riot

South By South West (SXSW) is a 10-day film, music and interactive conference that happens every year in Austin, Texas since 1987. It has been the career starting place for many musicians and a place for bigger name musicians to play for intimate crowds. SXSW has been on my “bucket list” for many years.

My only reservation was that I would need to have help with the 15-plus-hour drive. As long as I could get help, I would do it. Luckily, I found the world’s best co-pilot, my friend Jen. I picked her up on Tuesday morning and we set out for what could be no less than a rock and roll adventure. (more…)

If you were a skater in the early 80s there was a good chance that you were a fan of the band Agent Orange. Agent Orange is the band responsible for morphing together the sounds of surf music and punk rock to create what became surf/skate punk music. This band hit the Orange County California scene in that magic year for music, 1979.
