First Thursday

In Austin, Congress Avenue is the yellow-brick-road to politics.  Its north end leads straight to the state capitol building.  Its south end - SoCo - leads to food, drink, and shopping: culture, Austin-style.  The first Thursday night of each month this culture is on display, loud and proud, as SoCo turns into a block party called, intelligently, First Thursday.  To get out of the house I went down and people-watched for a while.

You know you're in Texas when used cowboys boots in a big industry.




These kids were playing The Devil Went Down To Georgia, and not like kids.  The fiddler is the girl far right.
