Dirtnail SXSW 2015 Afterparty: “South By So What?”

or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Butthorn

Every year, tens of thousands flock to Austin to attend the SXSW music festival. That part’s no secret. But what a lot of people don’t know is that for all of those pedicabbers who spend 10 days sweating out a years worth of water, the biggest SXSW events don’t start until the last cab goes up. Once again, Dirtnail played host to a rollicking good time at our annual SXSW afterparty, this time titled, “South By So What?” We cleared out all the cabs and brought all our friends in for the kind of drinking and reckless debauchery that is the stuff of legend. We brought in three kegs and nearly 5 gallons of liquor. We brought the funk with Continental Drift and Cmd Sea. Brandon even brought out his fire toys for a bit! There was supposed to be a drag show, in keeping with our tradition of overtly sexual, but technically artistic entertainment. However, they cancelled on us at the last minute and we couldn’t find anyone else manly enough to wear a dress. Special thanks go to Charlie Carr, John Johnson, Jeremy Wilkinson, Lavell McCoy and especially to Casey Clemmons for helping to bring everything together.

And so once again we start the pedicab calendar anew. Lots of great things are in store for this year! A lot of rumors have been flying around about the future of Dirtnail, and we are very excited to announce our plans for 2015, but not today. Today we need to clean up a lot of cups and beer spills and reflect on the good times we all shared last night. Check back soon!

Thank you to the Downtown Austin Alliance for recognizing a few of the older pedicab shops in town on their transportation page.

Quoting their webpage “You’ll see pedicabs throughout downtown, especially in the entertainment districts of E. 6th Street, the Warehouse District and W. 6th Street. Drivers are fully licensed by the City of Austin. Rates vary – be sure to ask your driver about the price per rider or per trip before hopping in.”
