Chef/author/general wild man Anthony Bourdain has been to some wild, far-flung locales on his No Reservations show. And in the Travel Channel show’s Sept. 3 third-season premiere, he drops in on one of the world’s most chaotic events: South by Southwest.
There, Bourdain finds Sleigh Bells playing their face-melting set at ACL’s Moody Theater and decides, “You know what, I’m gonna hang out with these kids today.” And hang he does! Bourdain tags along with duo Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller at their SXSW home base, a nice backyarded house away from the squalor of downtown.
The band’s friends join the party as well, and soon everyone’s enjoying a good crawfish boil, getting “drunk as s—” (Bourdain’s words) on avocado margaritas, and giving certain Reservation-ists permanent tattoos on their arm.
Watch all the high jinks go down in the video below:
