Back in Tejas!!! DJ H2O & Jarabe Journey back down to the "Don't Mess With State"

"Texas!!! We're Back! Since we didn't get enough of TX the last time, we came back for seconds. The journey on the way down was delayed for 2 LOOONG HOURS...(Breathe in) due to severe weather conditions. It was BAD! The winds were so strong that it literally shook the plane while we were waiting for air traffic control to clear us for take off. Other than that, we had a great time. Jarabe and I arrived at The Pedicab for their Monday Hip Hop night. This venue is owned by a good friend of ours (Shout Out to Mike.) The next day we headed to Texas State University of San Marcos for a Poetry Slam. There we shared the stage with local poets, who had refreshing material and great energy.... Part 2 of Texas Coming soon!"
