Lagunitas_CouchTrippin_Austin2016
Lagunitas Brewing Company hosted a total freakfest with free beer, lazer shooting armadillos, and incredible live music at The Historic Scoot Inn for SXSW. The event was in support of non-profit O+ Festival, an organization that connects musicians with health and wellness providers. Hop on-board the sofa for a bit to see what went down with the first 3 acts!

Low Cut Connie

Kicking off the day was Philly rock n rollers Low Cut Connie, who managed to transport the audience to a a grimy basement party in Chicago circa 1970. Serving up a couch flippin set of soulful and rowdy party jams, singer Adam Weiner has all the charisma of Elton John singing slightly lewd tales of city life and booze filled dancing ladies. The group even made President Obama’s summer playlist last year.  The group will continue touring the US this spring with dates in April and beyond.

“Back in School” off of Hi Honey

Dan Deacon

Making a special trip from London just to grace the stage of Scoot Inn, the sounds of Dan Deacon‘s multi-textured syrupy vocoder electronic ignited the crowd mid-afternoon. Unlike many DJ’s who are satisfied to operate behind their gear with the remoteness of a satellite, Deacon truly became one with the audience. His requests for a dance-off were met with zealous participation, and the IPA filled audience was happy to resurrect the energy during “When I Was Done Dying”.

BADBADNOTGOOD

An improvisational journey through metamorphic jazz, dizzying instrumental hip-hop and silky electronic, this young Canadian collective offered an enchanting mid-day escape from the Texas heat. BADBADNOTGOOD have worked with Ghostface Killah, Frank Ocean, and a slew of other influential alternative beat heads.
