We were in Atlanta for our Session Two event with SLUG, but found time to stop by Yachty's improptu DJ tryout. It was only 10 minutes from where we were staying, so why not? Security told us Coach K did not want any filming, but Coach K also saw us filming in the parking lot for 2 hours and let us slide. So shoutout to Coach K and all the aspiring DJ's that went up there and did it.

 
 

SESSION TWO was a night for the books. Thank you to Slug Agency, WeWork ATL and the city of Atlanta. We'll be back.

The Atlantic’s video series “Saturday Night in America” is about uncovering pockets of nightlife across the nation. This episode takes place in Austin, Texas, and profiles a pedicab driver, the owner of a honky-tonk bar, and members of a band called The Octopus Project. Despite a continuous influx of new people into the city, small bands who play live music have always shaped the culture. “Austin without music would just be a really boring college town,” says resident Sarah Yopp. “Local music here is, I think, the star of the city. Without music, Austin would die off.” The film was directed by Ben Wu and David Usui of Lost & Found Films.
