So as Wed morning approached, we were off to Sole Fresco to set up for Phranchyze's CD release of "The Black Larry Bird". The day party at the sneaker store was just what was needed to get the music portion of 5xSW started.

In the back of the store, French band  BINARY AUDIO MISFITS were feeling the early day party

People in line for a show next door were captivated enough to film some of Phranchyze's impromptu performance

soooo after the 4 hour day party, we had just about an hour to kill before we needed to be at the evening party we were painting at...so we met up with some friends at the Fader Fort to catch "special guests" which turned out to be Nas and Damian Marley....not bad, not bad at all.

Damian Marley was awesome...welcome to Jamrock
NAS...all he needs is one mic
More NAS

...and finally a lil more Damian Marley

Awesome performance by the collaborative effort of NAs and Marley, I cant wait to hear the album they will release soon.

After that awesomeness we headed south a bit to South Austin Soul where the Hiotwire Unlimited x Studio A party was being held..this party was bonkers, however, we didnt get much shots....heres a few we did get.

Gary Clark Jr. performed some new material, and killed it. Gary will sooon be taking stage with some guitar legends in Chicago as he plays the crictically acclaimed Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival. big ups to an ATX representer.
