Oh yes....the countdown to SXSW is moving along very nicely. I gotta say there is a buzz in the air here in Austin as more and more shows are announced and everyone starts to try and figure out who they can get to see and make arrangements to catch up with everyone coming through town. I know that I am trying to meet with quite a few people from around the world that I've been in touch with over the years through CubikMusik. We'll be exchanging stories, listening to
some lots of tunes and drinking some beers no doubt. Check back here in about a week or so and I'll be posting all the day and night shows that I'll be either checking out or recommending. Where possible I'll include tunes, and showtimes, etc.
Speaking of shows....you can find the weekly Above The Radar party installment over at Blog Fresh Radio this week. My mate Michael over at Sonic Itch Music covers a band that he has a lot of time for. The band are Dead Confederate and they hail from Athens, GA. They'll be headlining the inside stage during 'Above The Radar' and will be on at around 6pm. Oh yeh-and these guys are supporting REM the night before at Stubbs!
I sincerely hope that if you read this blog, or any of the others involved, that you drop by to check out the great music and say hi. Its really great to meet people who know so much about us even if its via our musical tastes. If you can't make it but are in town for SXSW and wanna meetup over some tunes just drop me a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
