In March, alternative trio with a flare for the outrageous A Deer A Horse headed on a road trip to play their hearts out for a week at SXSW for the second time. They entertained the masses at a total of 7 shows in Austin in 6 days, in the middle of a tour that ran just under three weeks. Here are a few snapshots from their adventures on the road.

Here we are with Dave Allison of Custom Made Music, in Norfolk, VA. Dave put out our cassette, so we had the release show in Norfolk. He is THE MAN.

This is us hanging out at No Culture Live in Columbus, OH. It’s ahouse with a basement venue, where they taped our set. That’s Tyler from Nuclear Moms in the foreground, and Tess Webster to the right of Angela. Tess designed our t-shirts, as well as our EP artwork.

Post-show hangsat Blue Danube diner in Columbus, OH. Pictured with: Dylan & Felix of awesome doom/punk band Queer Kevin, Tyler from Nuclear Moms, and Tess Webster.

Hanging in Austin with our favorite Brooklyn band, Jackal Onasis. We play with Jackal on 6/7 at The Glove, with Big Ups & Glued (St. Louis).

Nate of SXSW The Band! Nate put us up for 6 long days in Austin. We basically owe him our lives, as well as an un-payable debt for showing us so many good bands.

ADAH with the Smear Magazine crew. Smear Mag is a volunteer-run online and print magazine showcasing journalism, art and creative writing. With a focus on millennial voices, SMEAR allows for a variety of perspectives on feminism, current issues and local happenings.

Who knows what’s happening here?

With Kid Rock in Nashville, TN. We were doing some post-gig karaoke in a double-wide trailer when we came across this beast. [Please note that ADAH does not endorse the idiocy of Kid Rock]

We stayed with Rebecca’s friends, Lizzie & Jonathan, in Louisville, KY. Lizzie is an artist who specializes in felt-making and dyeing, and this is one of her felt monster creations.
