Honk if you’re … uh, never mind. Here are some pics and a video for your pleasure!

The kids and I had a tremendous Saturday recently when we attended the HonkTX Festival of Community Street Bands at the suggestion of my nemesis longtime friend and colleague, Herb Holland. It was the perfect Austin late March Saturday, and I had just acquired a new Nikor 35mm 1.8 prime lens. Needless to say, I shot about 300 pictures. Here are a few.

The festival was in Hyde Park, and it was a perfect day for some iced coffee at Spider House.

Bands from far and near played at several different "stages" throughout the park.

Herb plays with the Dead Music Capital Band, and I think they are my new favorite Austin band. They killed. (Not literally, but they kind of looked like they did!)

Herb — don’t eat my kids! Well, maybe that one, but not both, okay?

Voici est le coup de grace, or maybe the BITE de grace …

And afterward, we met up with mom and went to the Aztex’ season opener, a 2-nil victory. What a day.
