SPIN’s 50 Best from SXSW
The South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas is definitely on my bucket list of things to do before I die–right up there with the Dropkick Murphys in Boston on St. Patrick’s Day.
What’s so great about SXSW is the cultural fusion that happens on every street corner. Nearly every genre of music is represented across town in bars, galleries, and half-empty parking lots. Plus, there’s more to it than just the music now. For the last few years there’s been the SXSW Film Festival and the Interactive Awards for web designers (not unlike myself). That combines most of my personal interests in a city that I already adore.
SPIN rehashed some of their favorite moments from the music portion of the creative musings this crazy Texan town conjures. I particularly dig slides 2, 5, 10 and 12. The Jackalope is a great bar! Check it out!
