Inside Tei Shi’s SXSW Festival Tour

Including a performance at Coveteur’s event!

By: Emily Ramshaw

When it comes to Tei Shi, we’re fans. And when we heard she would be at SXSW performing a veritable marathon of shows (multiples a day), we decided to add one more to her schedule and booked her for our own event that we cohosted with Bumble and Reward Style. As if that wasn’t enough, we asked that she send us some snapshots of her time in town, which she did—making even green-room curtains and late-night stops at In-N-Out look unreasonably cool. We’ll admit it: our time at SXSW was decidedly less photogenic, but we’ll live vicariously through Tei Shi’s record of it instead.


“Austin on day one for the Ladies Who Launch event thrown by Coveteur, Reward Style, and Bumble.”

“Wish I could take these curtains on stage with me.”

“Sometimes touring feels like one giant colorful haze much like this.”

“The pure joy of having ordered animal-style everything.”

“SXSW show #5…”

“In love with this dress by Prisca Vera. It’s a good touring staple because it condenses and takes up virtually no space in a suitcase.”

“End of SXSW shows, feeling like I deserve this very comfy chair.”

“Goodbye, Austin.”

“Pro tip: Filling up on gas is important when driving a van.”

“Soundcheck in Santa Ana (also phone check).”

“Very good boys (my band!)”
