SXSW Soon (Very Soon, Too Soon, Not Soon Enough)!

A bit of news to let you all know about before I review the Dr. Dog in-store that took place yesterday.

Well, SXSW is upon us all! Can you feel it bearing down upon you? We certainly can. RSVP-ing for parties and events that we may not even attend is a weird thing. If you can remember back this far, we posted a lost of people we planned on seeing at the festival, but since then (today) that list has become much more expansive. You can check out our list of shows HERE. It seems pretty complete, but I know right off the bat that some very essential shows aren't on that list. Many of which will be taking place at Waterloo Records. They just posted their in-store calendar for the festival, and things are looking good:

Thursday, 3/15
Sparklehorse- 2pm
Lily Allen- 3pm
The Ponys- 4pm
Busdriver- 5pm

Friday 3/16
The Stooges- 6pm

For a full list of their SXSW in-store performances, look no further.

Also, here's a little something we thought you might like to see. We found this over at DoneWaiting.Com
We had to steal it from you guys!

As far as next week goes, it will be our first time at SXSW. We're going to be winging most things, with no press pass, no badge, no wristband, no nothing, so wish us the best of luck.

Thanks to Yaris for providing everyone who plans to attend the festival with their itinerary service. I honestly don't know what I would be doing without it. Now, I just need the phone numbers to all of the venues (too many of them!) to see about taking photos, tickets, and prices. This week is going to be a busy one.

P.S.- Pick up a copy of Arcade Fire's new album Neon Bible basically anywhere that sells music tomorrow. From what we hear, its fantastic and well worth what little you will pay for it. Let's just hope that they expand their tour to our part of the country.

We may be back with more before the festival gets underway, but I wouldn't count on it. Maybe just one last little blog before its all going on, but we are going to be so busy!
