It’s that time

Tomorrow (or I guess tonight) begins the annual deluge of SXSW participants to our fair city. The weather seems to have cleared up just in time.

I’m going to try and attend a few of the events and will post what I can over the next couple of weeks. I almost went blind trying to read the band listings in the Chronicle at lunch today. I have the same problem that I have every year. It’s not worth seeing any local bands during the festival because you can see them for cheaper and in a less crowded venue any other time of the year. There’re usually a couple of out of town bands that catch my eye, but nothing jumps out this year. Perennial attendees Laika and the Cosmonauts are always fun to see and I don’t think they come any other time of year. They’re playing the Continental on the 15th and The Drink on the 16th.

I’d come up with advice for the out-of-towners, but a few locals have already done so. David welcomes the “furners” in his characteristically friendly way and Wiley had a few bits of advice before last year’s festival.

Feel free to add your own advice in the comments.
