Part Two-Dan Auerbach and The Fast Five Killed SXSW (Bill's Place)

"You, Aaron, are what it's all about. You're real. Your room is real. Your friends are real. Real, man, real. You know? Real. You're more important than all the silly machinery. Silly machinery. And you know it! In eleven years its going to be 1984, man. Think about that!"

That was a quote taken from the movie Almost Famous. A band member finds himself at a house party and he diggs on the "realness" of the situation.

Dan Auerbach said something familiar, while in a familiar situation, as he began to speak about his road manager (sound guy?).

I'll paraphrase what he said:
Dan-He has been with us all throughout this tour and he has done pretty well....until last night. You see, there were these playboy bunnies.

*the men in the crowd cheer*

Dan- I don't like playboy bunnies. I like REAL women!

*the women in the crowd cheer"

Dan- And I like Playing to REAL people at REAL parties like this one!!

*Crowd goes wild....somebody shouts "I am a golden god!" Dan strikes up another tune.

Kick ass.

Here is Rene Villanueva, the Lead singer/Bass player for Hacienda. He totally hit Reyna in the head with his Bass. I don't mean that figuratively.

He did apologize. Nice guy.

This guy is so excited that Dan is right next to him that he may or may not have peed himself. You be the judge.

Did I tell you about the piñatas?

Oh yes. They had 6 of them- one to represent each band member. At some point, the dude next to me was wearing a piñata head on his head like a hat. It was bizarre. I ended up with piñata crepe paper in my hair and on my lip. A girl in the audience pointed it out to me as I was leaving. I wish somebody would have told me before I spoke with Dan Auerbach, Dante Schwebel and Rene Villanueva.
Nice.

(EDIT: The piñatas were tossed into the crowd and subsequently demolished...crepe paper was floating in the air. That is how the paper ended up on my lip. I did not make out with the guy next to me.)

One more post on the show after this. There is a good pic coming up!
