Last night I posted a “SXSW Notes from the Road” update courtesy of rappers Yak Ballz and Kosha Dillz who are keeping me updated on their SXSW experience via e-mail. Today Dillz sent in this SXSW snapshot of him walking down what appears to be 6th Street with a boa constrictor around his neck. Yes, that is indeed a live snake.

“Can't help but smile here,” Dillz writes. “Right before my rap session with Mistah F.A.B, Zion I, EyeDea and Black Skeptik of the Mayhem Poets, I managed to be choked by a boa constrictor to help my root canal pain.” (And here I thought that's what Vicodin was for. Shows what I know.)

If you're roaming Austin tonight looking for a good gig then check out Yak Ballz and Kosha Dillz who perform the Back Alley Social at 10:45 p.m., located at 303 West 5th Street.
