I’ve always wanted to go to SXSW. I barely missed it when I visited Austin a few years ago. I love going to music festivals in general, because the cool music vibe from all the bands that perform blows my mind. What Paste magazine does every year to highlight the SXSW is probably the next best thing to going. In some ways it’s better because you don’t have to deal with drunk people.
Anyway, go to this page.
