Food and Music at SXSW 2019

The best thing about attending SXSW is that you never have to worry about finding free food. It’s almost everywhere and the best part about that is that it’s almost always accompanied by live music. I spent every afternoon in one house or another, taking in live music and enjoying delicious bites.
