So this blog started out as an extension of my love for music and only fully realized itself because I needed to keep track of bands I wanted to see down there.
So with that said, I’m heading down there road trip style to cover all that SXSW has to offer. Being a first timer, I’m no where near sure how things will shake out during and after the conference. A couple of things I have coming down the pike include my own music, more reviews of SXSW bands, more reviews of mainstream bands, and a few surprises. Hit me on Twitter if you are heading down to Austin as well or just think I have a kick ass Twitter background. In the meantime, rock out to some Motorhead. They are going to be there.
