SXSW 2016 RECAP: Day Two of Insanity
Sneakiest Sneak of the Week
If there was any lesson we could take away from this weekend is that if you walk with confidence, you can get in anywhere. That’s how we were able to get our way into the YouTube at Coppertank party to see Jamie XX. The GA line wrapped around the sidewalk and looked like it would be hours until we got in, but the guest list side was totally empty. We smooth talked the people working the front and convinced them we were on the list and had the right wristbands, and in 2 minutes we were inside. Just in time for Jamie XX’s monstrous set of deep techno, classic funk, and his brand of slightly weird but totally groovy house music. It was truly a master class in DJing that had the whole building moving. The fact that it was also an open bar made us laugh the night away at how sneaky we were.
