Wednesday I started my day with the awesome Lunchbox chat discussion on SXSW. After grabbing lunch with WBEZ-ers Nick White and Jason Saldanha and the inimitable Lunchbox guest Jesse Thorn, I sat in traffic for a very long time looking for a parking spot.
Yesterday I arrived in Austin for my first visit to "the live music capitol of the world." So far my expectations (based wholly on the films "Slacker" and "Whip It") have been met. Crowd of chatty, hip twentysomethings working at the local independent grocery store? Check (Thank you "Slacker").
It's been one week since SXSW ended, where's the recap for Friday and Saturday of SXSW Music? What happened?What happened is that Friday we lived like Kings. We party hopped, we took pictures of people's bad fashion designs, we imbibed more Red Bull than could possibly be healthy.
