Background to the foreground

Recording contracts in the customary sense aren’t everything. Scouts will be out in force at SxSW in search of music for tv shows, commercials, and videogames. Today’s WSJ weekend edition takes an in-depth look at this aspect of South by Southwest (“Background Music,” byline John Jurgensen). The little trip planner sidebar is pretty unimaginative, but its very mundanity makes it of interest. Anyhow, the feature explores an aspect of the conference that I hadn’t given much thought to. As for the recommendations, for dining there are just two. The first, to guide carnivores, is no surprise and can be easily guessed; the other touts a spot for Mexican food that isn’t always on the lists. Only three clubs are listed.
