UPROXX @ SXSW: A House For Lions, Youngblood Hawke And The Workaholics House Party


Unless you count The Iron Bear, Friday’s ‘Workaholics’ house party in downtown Austin had more “tight butthole” discussion than anywhere else at SXSW per capita.

Sadly, I wasn’t a part of the excellent interview the UPROXX crew conducted with show stars Anders Holm and Blake Anderson during Workaholics Week back in October as I’d just started getting into the show (thanks, Netflix!). In fact, it was Warming Glow’s Danger Guerrero who originally had the invite to the Comedy Central party, but once again my “only guy who lives in Austin” card fell, and I became one of the throng who filled 83 Rainey and pushed forward to get a picture with Adam, because holy sh*t, Adam is standing right there.

I threw together a little gallery of the sights and sounds from the afternoon, because this was the best place of the week to see inflatable dinosaurs, watch security guys pretend not to see you smoking pot out in the open and play meme-themed cornhole in somebody’s front yard. It was VERY tight butthole.

Also, music happened. But we’ll get to that.





Beer pong in the front yard. To my knowledge, nobody jumped off the roof and broke their back this year.

(also, if you got off the phone you’d probably have better aim)

A quick look at the line. The tree blocks the view, but it extends all the way down the street to the point that multiple friends texted me with “f**k that line, we’re going to the crawfish thing next door”.

As promised, the inflatable dinosaur.

The first band of the afternoon (at least for me … and unfortunately I was on a schedule and couldn’t stay for everyone else) was L.A. based indie-rockers A House For Lions. They gave off a pretty solid Blessid Union Of Souls vibe without the dated, sub-Barenaked Ladies nonsense that makes Blessid Union Of Souls terrible.
