South By Southwest
. It’s one of the biggest music festivals in the country, with over one thousand performers saturating Austin’s bars, clubs, auditoriums, and assorted venues with live music. SXSW is near and dear to our hearts for many reasons, including the fact that we’ll be there for this year’s festivities. Stay tuned for announcements about the Baeble Music showcase…
This year’s South By Southwest Music Festival will be held from March 14-18, with windmilling guitarist Pete Townshend giving the kickoff keynote address during that first evening. The Talking Heads’ David Byrne will also be speaking during the week. Expect jam-packed shows by groups like Bloc Party, Cold War Kids, Interpol, The Stooges, Albert Hammond Jr., and literally hundreds of others. Also expect some stellar barbecue, especially if you catch a show at Stubb’s
Ticket prices aren’t going to be cheap at this point, so expect to pay $550 for a music badge. And as always, the official website
is the best place to go for all the info that can’t fit into a trim ‘n’ tidy blog entry. See you in Austin!
