Yesterday was pretty much amazing. Before even arriving in Austin for SXSW, I knew that I was going to be seeing Hole play at the Spin Magazine party being held at Stubb's BBQ. The organizers of the event sent laminate passes via Fedex, which was fancy and exciting enough, but then when I read "complimentary beverages provided by ..." my excitement level went through the top of my head.

The audience was a hot pepper mix of rockers and celebs, who showed up to pay homage to all things Runaways, one of the most inspirational bands to rock chicks everywhere!
