Going to Austin this weekend?

The South by Southwest(SXSW) music and film festival starts this week, March 9 to be exact, in Austin.

The first SXSW was held in 1987. I've never been to SXSW, but each year I dream about going, hoping that the following year I will be able to attend. This year is no different. Guess I'll wait until next year. sigh

Anyway, if you are wondering what all the excitement is about, check out some of the artists and events scheduled:

The Stooges
Bloc Party
Meat Puppets
The Polyphonic Spree
The Walkmen hundreds of more bands
