Merge Party @ SXSW: Farewell, Pok-e-Jo's!

We had a party on Friday, March 16th - co-hosted with our friends at Absolutely Kosher. It was a great time - the Pok-e-jo's people are always very accomodating! It was bittersweet, because as I write this, Pok-e-Jo's is being torn down for luxury condos. Boo!

Paul & Christina on the way to Pok-e-Jo's. You can't see Paul's tears as he realizes it is too late for breakfast burritos, but they are there!

The Broken West kick off the day of music looking a bit wartorn, but still charming!

Laura & the rock toddlers dance!

O Oakley Hall!

Martin Merge enjoying the sun and The Rosebuds!

Mason from Pok-e-jo's. Best use of a Broken West tattoo ever! He also has 2 Arcade Fire buttons placed in prominent locations, and despite being "totally high" managed to keep our little event running smoothly! We'll miss you Pok-e-jo's! See you next year, Austin!
