PHOTOS: SXSW 2017

photos and words by Shab Ferdowsi

This year I hit the road with Ramonda Hammer and Velvet to make our ways to Austin for SXSW. 

SXSW is a madhouse of music from all over the country and other parts of the world gathered into Austin's downtown for a full week of shows and meetups and brunches and breakfast tacos. Last year I went as a photographer. This year I went as a photographer with the mind of an event producer and musician. How can Beating Lights be involved next year? How can my band be involved next year? Moreover, do I want to be involved next year? Also, what is the meaning of life? So many questions, so little time to ponder them.

Here are some of the photos I took in the 2.5 days were out in Austin:
