On September 15th, a portion of our Longhorn Band traveled to Los Angeles to perform at the USC v. UT game the following day.
We arrived at LAX at 9am with the entire day ahead of us! We sprang onto a bus that was headed for the beautiful Santa Monica pier where we would spend our afternoon. We got to hang out at the beach, ride the rollercoaster and Ferris wheel, cool down with some ice cream and get our fortune from Zoltar. That evening, we performed a few of our traditional tunes at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills for fellow Longhorns.
The next morning began by exploring some of LA’s finest brunch restaurants and loading up for game day! We arrived at the USC campus with enough time to explore its beauty, and soon after we suited up and performed at some of the Longhorn tailgates to hype up UT fans.
The game took place in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which is where the 1984 Olympics were held. The coliseum was sold out and the energy at the game was almost tangible! After double overtime, we were defeated but not without the USC fans giving us a standing ovation for a great game. We headed back to Austin, and after what felt like a week, we arrived back in Austin only 48 hours after we had left.
