Random Labor Day thoughts

Labor Day

Spent a little time in San Antonio this weekend. I wanted to share some photos that I captured via Instagram. I think I spotted a pipe that was bombed by Knitta Please. Always exciting.

Really excited to see Fleet Foxes, Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene in a few weeks for ACL! I’ve seen all of these bands perform before and they all have tremendous stage presence.

  1. Nice captures. The pic of the plant really “feels” like San Antonio. I’m really looking forward to AWVFTS. I could use some new introspective, meditative music. Oh and be careful you don’t get LOST
