You know the AM/PM slogan "Too much good stuff"? Well, that's exactly how I felt in Austin. So many bands to see in so little time -- literally, because most sets are 20 mins. Fortunately, Austin is a pretty easy town to navigate and walking from place to place is no problem. Getting through the crowds, and then in the door of clubs and tents is another challenge.
Highlights for me include seeing, The Temper Trap, Freeland, Juliette Lewis & The New Romantics, Janes Addiction and, The Very Best (Esau Mwamwaya & Radioclit).
If you haven't been to South By Southwest, definitely go. Fan, artist, promoter, whatever... there is something for everyone. I would highly recommend going to Austin sometime soon regardless of SXSW, just so you can eat at Guero's.
