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.
