SXSW Mania: Resources & Links

by admin ·

Since we’re not the cool people who make it their business to hop on planes and jetset to the annual SXSW, we’ll be the nerds to help you find some of the most useful coverage of this popular festival.

Embracing film, interactive and music, the 2007 SXSWeek runs March 9-18 in Austin, TX. If you’re not familiar with SXSW, or just want to get a handle on all the goings on (and there’s a lot), the best places to start are the official site’s about, music, interactive, or film pages.

The fun really begins with the varied amount of ongoing coverage. Start at the SXSW community blog, then mosey on to the any of the following: unofficial SXSW music festival blog, or the best SXSW parties.

Don’t forget to check out Public Enemy and X Clan on this leg of their tour.

And if you’re looking for some down-home soul music at SXSW, don’t forget to check out the newly rejuvenated Stax Records and its special revue on March 15. Booker T. & the MGs, William Bell, Eddie Floyd, and others are scheduled to perform a 90-minute revue, 7:30 p.m. at Antone’s.
