Austin is apparently the musical shiz

Posted: May 11, 2009 in Uncategorized

Seems sometime in the next few years I’m going to have to make it to Austin for SXSW. I’ve heard it raved about before, and I’ve been catching the aftermath one-off sets from NPR’s All Music Considered over the past week, and there are some remarkable acts that were playing that festival.

    I actually found Austin to be this really odd place, it was one part saturday market, one part christian texas and then one part city- but when I was there the streets were empty, everyone drove, it was very odd coming from nyc to be the only ones on the sidewalk beside a lot of homeless people.
    Think downtown eugene ten years ago and make it bigger, with good BBQ and you have austin.
    However SXSW is like a religion for most of my friends, if you go, you will most likely meet all of my friends from NYC and SF in one shot. And if you do end up going, ping me, I can get you cheap/free tickets. There is good music and there new media area is like one giant nerd pick up fest.

      I know, everyone from my friends to my dad have said it’s fantastic. Can’t really ignore a recommendation like that… Austin in 2010 is starting to seem like it’ll have to happen.
      Although frankly I’m a little disappointed that the best party in 2010 won’t be on Mars like we were led to believe way back in the 20th century.
