SXSW 2000 Death March
One of my many manias is overdoing it, badly, in what my friends have called
a "Death March" through the South By Southwest Music Festival each spring in
Austin. Yeah, seeing 40-60 bands in a weekend may seem a bit excessive. OK.
It flat out _is_ excessive. But where and when else can you see so many bands,
so cheaply, and get such a cross-section of what everyone will be listening
to in a year or two, as well as the far, far cooler stuff that only a handfull
will still remember?
Anyway, out of the almost 1000 bands who played official SXSW gigs, and a
couple other gigs from hangers-on, here's a description of the thoroughly
enjoyable insanity I made of this year's SXSW.
