SXSW

SXSW Interactive & Film have already been underway, but the Music portion of SXSW kicks off In Austin, Texas today, Wednesday, March 17th. It runs until Sunday though most of it is over Saturday night.

We'll be doing our best to keep posts and coverage going while we're in Austin. Almost everyone that contributes to this website is there (here), and many of us will be tweeting at @bvSXSW. We're doing a total of seven shows - one official night showcase on Wednesday (tonight), and six day parties in four days (competing shows on Thursday and Saturday). We have tons of free bands, free drinks and free food. For the first time ever, I also even have an easy to remember URL with all BV shows listed in one place: BrooklynVegan.com/SXSW.

As @bvBBG pointed out in his Guide to Metal @ SXSW, three of those day parties are mostly metal (which is why we were ok with running concurrent day paries on Thursday and Saturday)

Browse our SXSW tag, SXSW's official schedule, SCHED, Austin Show List, Oh My Rockness, do512, and Austinist for a hopefully close-to-complete list of shows happening in Austin.

why dont you just quit the blog and be a promoter and then you dont have to go through the charade of pretending there's no conflict of interest

Guggenheim billed it as a performance piece and it was just an installation. Resultingly, the crowd simply waited for the "show" to start, limiting anyone's ability to freely explore the space (the ground floor was packed with indian-style seaters, and the balconies were lined with people holding onto their spots like grim death.

it makes no sense for them to deconstruct the entire TD North venue to play a show the next night ~50 miles south at an amphitheater (which probably would require a different stage setup anyway). They'd play Providence or Mohegan Sun before that (and I think those are both highly unlikely).

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...

bonnaroo would never do something like put arcade fire up against soundgarden. or strokes vs gaga. thats why these festivals with curfews are not worth going to. you have to miss tons of bands you'd want to see.
