Covering SXSW with Jim DeRogatis

March 20, 2012

South by SouthWest turns the city of Austin, Texas into one of the world's largest and most chaotic music festivals for a week each March. It's a daunting event to tackle as a concertgoer, but it's near impossible to give it its due as a critic. That's what Sound Opinions co-host and WBEZ blogger Jim DeRogatis has attempted for each of the past twenty-one years. This video documents a small slice of that effort. (Not included on screen are the countless bands that approach DeRo, CD-Rs in hand.)
