High up on my bucket list is to spend a week at the SXSW Music Festival. I just can’t imagine anything more fun than just going from concert to concert for 7 to 10 days, just overdosing on the sounds.
If I went this year, I would be sure to check out !!!, Agnes Obel, Allison Pierce, Big Thief, and Boogarins - and that’s just through the letter B! I probably couldn’t last the whole festival but I would give it the old college try.
NPR Music annually does a collection of 100 songs from 100 bands that will be there. It’s a pretty amazing selection of music and this year they have made it downloadable even. You can listen to it on their site, play the Spotify playlist, or just get the MP3s themselves. Think I know what I’ll be listening to for the next couple days!
