The SXSW 2k11 tour has officially begun and we’re officially 30 minutes behind schedule because we found a 4 star Chinese restaurant on Yelp and drove 30 minutes out of the way to eat there last night. Nice sit-down joint – great service, mediocre spring rolls. We feel good. Hit Walmart for breakfast this morning, stocked up on ear plugs and body wash. First date in Nashville tonight, full list of dates below. See y’all soon.
