Wishing I Was In Austin This Week...


Just about every cool indie or underground band is in Austin, TX this week for the annual South By Southwest Music Conference (SXSW). Back when I was in the music business, I used to go every year, but it has been at least six years since I last attended.

My brother is there, and some friends of mine are, too. Here is a taste of what I'm missing: Ambulette, American Princes, Apollo Sunshine, Atmosphere, Blackalicious, Burning Brides, Neko Case, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Criteria, Datsuns, Eagles of Death Metal, Film School, Goblin Cock, The Go! Team, Mogwai, Minus the Bear, Okkervil River, Robert Pollard, Superchunk and so many more! A complete list can be found here (it is a pdf file).
