Our good friends at Lambert’s hosted a pre-awards champagne toast and then drove us through downtown to the awards ceremony in the back of their ’51 Ford Pickup. We waved and yelled #AssToThePeople & #WorldDomination to the SXSW masses as we made our way to the convention center. After we accepted our awards, M.C. Andy langer, said,
“Next time someone tries to tell you that Austin’s changed, show em that freak show.” – Andy Langer
