Things we’re looking forward to at SXSW
Have two more beautiful words ever been stuck together?
Thousands of them! They hang out under a bridge, then fly around at dusk. Whee!
We're trying to find day parties sponsored by companies like Apple and Adidas. The Harley-Davidson party isn't giving away motorcycles, or we'd be all over it.
Stone Temple Pilots' Scott Weiland
Go ahead, laugh. We'll see who's laughing when Scott Weiland is our new best friend.
Oh yeah, bands!
Some we're excited about seeing, in no particular order: Roky Erickson with Okkervil River, Besnard Lakes, She & Him, Real Estate, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, No Age, Billy Bragg, Cheap Trick, Here We Go Magic, John Hiatt, the Red River, Quasi, Sole, Andrew W.K., Califone, Madlib, White Denim, Pattern is Movement, DJ Quik, Big Star
