SXSW HAD ME AT WHOA.

SXSW is that magical time when 150,000 nationwide folks descend upon the city. The experiences are abundant, new friends are made, the opportunities are a plenty, the parties are free and the booze flows like the Colorado River.

An injection of creativity and boost to the economy, SXSW brings together talent, ideas and offers a buffet of experiences. Opportunity for adventure awaits at every turn and chance at a glance; the people watching is next level and you never know who you’re going to meet.

This year, I didn’t have credentials or RSVP to much. http://www.showlistaustin.com served as a day to day schedule and “going with the flow” was the preferred method. Also, I didn’t drink a drop of alcohol. Can’t say that for my hair or clothing, however. While it’s nearly impossible to remember what seems like 3 months worth of memories, I’ve listed the bands I saw along with urls to their music. All good stuff, explore and enjoy! If you feel inclined, leave your favorite SX moment or band in the comments below. Much gratitude to the bands who busted their butts running around venue to venue, loading and unloading days on end to make SXSW what it is. If you like what you hear, show your support and buy an album.
