SXSW: My ears and heart are full

This festival has been amazing and overwhelming, in a very good way. I’m barely alive (among other things the Hold Steady nearly killed me last night, two shows from them in one day) so what I can offer right now is a look through my lens these last three days.

Words to follow when I find my voice again, after all the singing along.

  • I didn’t realize there were so many non-wristband parties with so much talent at SXSW (yeah I know I should have known that). I won’t make that mistake next year.

  • Does the Hold Steady keyboard player look like Mario (Wario?) or is it just me?

    Great job getting this music out to us BTW, thanks for your efforts.

  • I hope you got a chance to see Frank Turner. If you didn’t, go NOW to the interwebs and look into him.

    YouTube has some great quality video from his showcase at Latitude 30 (this is when I saw him).

    Best performer of the week for me, along with Portland’s Blind Pilot.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
